Jason Wu for Target Collection
It’s times like this we’re really jealous of the ladies.
“Target Corporation is partnering with celebrated womenswear and accessories designer Jason Wu to introduce an affordable, limited-edition collection of women’s apparel, handbags and scarves.
“By working with Target I was able to create an accessible collection that reflects my sophisticated design aesthetic” said Jason Wu. “As with my main collection, special attention has been considered into every detail and I can’t wait to see girls wearing and enjoying the collection.”
For his collection for Target, Wu took inspiration from the idea of an American girl in Paris, while staying true to his signature juxtaposition of modern sensibility and timeless style. Ranging in price from $19.99 to $59.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $49.99 for handbags and scarves, Jason Wu for Target will be available Feb. 5 through March 6, 2012 or until supplies last at most Target stores and on Target.com.
“Jason is one of the fashion industry’s most talented designers and his work has already had a global impact,” said Trish Adams, senior vice president of apparel and accessories, Target. “Jason’s collection for Target offers our guests a beautiful assortment of sophisticated apparel and stylish accessories that embody his signature aesthetic, with each priced under $60.”
There are 53 pieces in the Jason Wu for Target collection including versatile apparel and accessories that easily transition from day to evening such as A-line silhouette dresses, tie-waist shifts and high-waisted skirts accented with Wu’s signature detailing. The collection’s Parisian inspiration is found in Wu’s exclusive muse for Target, Milu, a mischievous, illustrated black cat that will be found on a t-shirt, tote bag and silk scarf, as well as in the collection’s marketing campaign.
The Jason Wu for Target collection is a standalone, limited-edition designer collection for Target.”
Why are we jealous of the ladies? Contrary to some opinions, we do not want to wear dresses, but we sure would love a diffusion line for men as affordable and yet stylishly well made as this one. There are some GREAT pieces here; perfect for a young gal with a new job or even a newly single gal who feels the need to add some pretty to her wardrobe. But we’ll be honest: it’s that kitty bag. We squee’d when we saw it, but try as we might to imagine such a scenario, there’s no where and no way for us to ever get away with sporting it. You lucky bitches. What an adorable line this is.
