target relaunches go international designer dresses

i remember hearing that target would re-release some of the previous go international designer collections a while ago.  looks like the dust has settled–34 dresses from 17 go international designer collaborations all priced under $50 will be hitting stores and online march 13th.  they’ll be available through april 10th, or until the more likely scenario–they’ll sell out.  i like the idea of go international and i love target, but i have to admit that there haven’t been too many designer collections that have wowed me.  i think h&m’s collaborations usually look better, although some of them are pretty expensive (lanvin anyone?).  there were some that i missed out on the first time around that i may pick up this time though.

these are personal favorites that i’ll be mulling over:

rodarte for target slip dress in peach, $44.99

rodarte for target lace-print dress in black/tan, $39.99

zac posen for target wrap dress in pink, $44.99

i don’t remember what the price points were like for the collections previously…but the prices aren’t too bad this time around.  i remember the zac posen pieces i purchased were pretty expensive initially (the dresses were like $100, but i got them on sale/clearance for $40-$70).

i have only purchased from the zac posen collection.  most of the go international designs have failed to impress me and i had not heard of a lot of the designers.  i think target could benefit from better models, photography, and advertising/marketing for these though…they do deserve the attention.

to see all 34 pieces from luella bartley, tara jarmon, paul & joe, behnaz sarafpour, proenza schouler, libertine, alice temperley, erin fetherston, jovovich-hawk, rogan, richard chai, jonathan saunders, thakoon, tracy feith, rodarte, zac posen, and tucker, check out the coverage at racked.  it includes the price points too.

these are what i bought last time:

zac posen for target brocade tie dress

zac posen for target dress with removable tulle (i got navy/black)

zac posen for target safety pin scarf
