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.
