I used to anticipate the Target collaborations so eagerly, even though I never had the patience to elbow my way to the front of the online queue. It was just fun to see these designers diffuse their style, and see whether it lived up to the hype. At some point on Saturday, Sept. 14, Target will drop a pretty sizable selection of greatest hits — or at least hits, or perhaps occasionally just “things that were also present the first time” — from its 20 years of designer collaborations, with lines ranging from Missoni to Jason Wu to Proenza Schouler to Marimekko, to Zac Posen and Stephen Burrows and even an item from Erin Fetherston.
I haven’t yet found an exact TIME for when these links go online — is it midnight Eastern time, or midnight Pacific time, or some time in the morning that lines up with when its stores open? I DO NOT KNOW. But you can bookmark any of these pages, or favorite them, and then when the collection is live you’ll be able to add the items to your cart and zip the heck out of there. A few notes:
– These are are just selections; I tried to link to the full collection page whenever there was more to see, but you know. Sometimes I forget things.
– Target’s website is behind the times, and so it has separate pages for its plus sizes. This is annoying and feels like it should be an easy fix: Put all the pictures into the slideshow and put all the size buttons there. Bingo. Done. Other retailers have managed this, Target. (I left some crabby feedback about this.) Anyway, this means I had to link each set of sizes separately, but they should all be in there. Everything IS available in both.
– I might occasionally have written XS to XL when it’s really 2-16, and 1X to 3X when it’s really 18-22. I THINK I got them all? But, I’m flawed.
FYI: I can assure you that the whim to write this post was entirely mine; this is not a paid placement. However, GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means that IF you decide to buy, we get a tiny bonus — like a finder’s fee. All featured items were chosen by me, as I sat around drinking cabernet in my seasonally wrong wine cardigan and watching the Democratic debate.
