Jason Wu, Target collaboration hits stores Feb. 5

Here’s a good reason to look forward to Super Bowl Sunday.

The long-awaited collaboration between fashion darling Jason Wu – he’s one of Michelle Obama’s fave designers – and Target will hit stores on Feb. 5.

The 53-piece, limited-edition collection from Wu, who used Paris as his inspiration, includes A-line silhouette dresses, tie-waist shifts and high-waist skirts. Prices range from $19.99 to $59.99.

It’ll be in stores and at www.target.com until March 6 – or until supplies last. Your best bet: Shop early to avoid a sellout in seconds similar to the one that occurred when Target partnered with Missoni last fall.

But, that’s not all.

Target has also announced that it will be partnering with a series of boutiques for a new project called the Shops at Target.

Beginning May 6, Target will feature limited-edition items co-created with these stores.

In the first rotation, expect these collaborations:

E Gummy fried eggs and black licorice dogs inspired by the Candy Store, located in San Francisco.

<•> <•> An exclusive collection of body care products and bath accessories from Cos Bar, which started in Aspen, Colo.

<•> Doggie treats, including Snickerpoodles Biscuits, inspired by the Polka Dog Bakery in Boston.

<•> Home and garden accessories designed with the antiques from the Privet House in Warren, Conn., in mind.

<•> And Miami-inspired clothing for all a la the Webster, in Miami Beach, Fla.
