Listen up, fashion folks: we have it on good authority that Jason Wu is collaborating with Target, but is the collection dropping this fall?
When one brand rips off another, it’s generally a case of one producing a cheaper version of something the other makes. But a brand producing an almost identical copy of something, and then charging four times the original price? That’s just dumb.
We’ve been dreaming about Target’s GO International Designer Collective since October, and now we know exactly which dresses are being rereleased in this supremely awesome greatest hits collection.
This was the week that Marie Claire got embroiled in some “fattie” controversy, Justin Bieber was the victim of unfortunate Photoshopping and Harry Potter stole from Alexander McQueen. It was also the week we learned Anna Wintour worked for Penthouse and that Target made us very, very happy.
We happen to think Target diffusion lines are really, really amazing. Not only does Target generally price things appropriately — they also have the sickest collaborations. And this is why the announcement of their Designer Collective project is the best news we’ve heard all week.
Since reaching out to British designer Luella Bartley for its first limited collaboration line in 2006, Target has kept a firm grip on the pulse of the fashion world. And now WWD is reporting that the next collection on the menu is with none other than William Rast – proving that Target still knows how to win the love of the frugal fashionistas.
