Jason Wu, Target collaboration hits stores Feb. 5
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.
