Jason Wu for Target Collection

Posted on January 11, 2012

It’s times like this we’re really jealous of the ladies.
Jason Wu Collection for Target
“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.

      I had that issue with the Missoni line.  There was a sweater that would have been PERFECT for a friend of mine but it didn’t size large enough:( 

      Though that didn’t stop the woman who bought the dress I wanted even though it was the wrong size and fit for her completely….

        She probably bought it so she could resell it on eBay for 5 times the price.

      Or if any of it would work on a woman with curves…guess I’ll have to settle for that fab trench & the t-shirt w/shorts.

      • http://twitter.com/saturnwings Alexis

        Totally.  Sigh.

        I’ve tried on some Jason Wu stuff over the years (Nordstrom’s selections aren’t ever great, though).  If you have curves (any curves, not just the ridiculous ones genetics “blessed” me with), Jason Wu is a pipe dream.  Even that trench, which will likely look fine on most women, would just never look quite so fabulous as on a woman with little to no bust.

        On the other hand, that cat bag is mine the minute I find it in a Target.  Assuming I find a Target.

      • Denny Li

        Completely agree. The clothes are cute -but none of cuts would work for any woman with boobs larger than a B cup. =(

      Target’s plus-size collections are a joke. If they can have nice Liz Lange stuff (which, let’s face it, most women are only going to wear for a few months), why can’t they have a decent women’s department?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=21413366 Evan Hart

        I know! Their maternity stuff is adorable. Their plus sizes are generally shapeless (which is my #1 complaint of plus size clothing). It’s overpriced and not that cute. If they produced a designer plus size line (like they do with their “normal” size clothes), it would sell out in a minute. 

        • Anonymous

          I seriously heart their maternity line, and a lot of it would be cute on all different sizes if they changed the cut a tiny bit to eliminate the extra long front…

          • Anonymous

            You know how they have the sale racks between Plus and Maternity? A few years ago, I bought an adorable XL spring coat (black with small white polka dots and piping) and didn’t realize till after I got it home that it was a Liz Lange. No one else can tell, either. I get endless compliments on it. ;-)

            I’m a classic apple shape (big rack, no waist), so maybe that’s why it fit!

          • Anonymous

            I did that with a tankini top, didn’t realize til I got it home it was Liz Lange. I really liked the way it was a little fuller at the bottom and didn’t ride up when I raised my arms. I really didn’t hang low at all.

        I was wondering that myself… I think the white dress would be DIVINE for my reception dress, but I’m like a 12/14 and well… I won’t get my hopes up if there’s no need.

      Aren’t we just sick of the selection for plus size women?  They make cute pieces like these for skinny little bitches, then make outfits for us that look like they were fashioned in 1970.  Or worse, put a band in the worst possible location and shorten the sleeves by 2″ so they aren’t long enough or short enough to be considered 3/4 length. I’m going to have to create a plus size line then go on AOTL!

      I agree, and I always find it annoying that they don’t make the special collections in the full range of sizes.  It’s TARGET, for heaven’s sake, you’re supposed to be able to find your size. But I guess the accessories are fair game.

    There is some adorable stuff here, but I don’t know what new job a young girl could wear these to unless it isn’t in a professional setting–they’re not immodest a bit, but definitely inappropriate if a woman wants to be taken seriously in an office.

    • Anonymous

      I wonder if the styling on the model makes the dresses seem a lot more twee than they would be in real life.  Depending on where the skirt hits, I could see pairing a few of them with more professional footwear and a more mature hairstyle, and a 20-something could definitely wear them in most offices. 

    • Alisa Rivera

      First job out of college in a company that does tech or social media or marketing or publishing…Agree it would be too casual for banking or law. 

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

        It’s not just that they’re casual or twee, they’re just too short for an office.  You may have a point about distinguishing offices in different industries, though.  I’m a lawyer, so I don’t really know what it would be like in a social media office, but I can’t imagine an attorney or secretary in our office wearing a skirt or dress that is more than and inch or so above the knee.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          These are short — on the model.  But most of us don’t have model length legs, so I’m going to try them on before labeling them too short.

    • Anonymous

      Actually, there are quite a few professional industries where women can dress like this and get away with it: Most aspects of design (including architecture), marketing/advertising, retail buying, IT, publishing…

      She shouldn’t wear it to an interview, but once she’s got the job (and depending on the office, of course), she might be a-okay (or even expected) to look fresh & fun & forward.

    I don’t buy clothes at Target – not because I’m a snob, but even the “designer” clothes fall apart after a few wearings.  The store sells cheap clothes – period.  I’d rather spend my hard-earned money on fewer well-made pieces.

      I buy all of my jeans at Target and they last longer than any $80 pair I’ve ever owned — and I’m damn hard on jeans.  I find Target to be like anywhere else — know how to check your fabrics and your seams.  Fabrics you want something that won’t pill or go threadbare quickly.  Seams should be sturdy and well-attached with no dangling threads.  A tug should not displace them at all.

    I really like a couple pieces here and I hope it’s not a debacle like Missoni.

    I can see this being less popular than Missoni simply because the zig-zags are pretty recognizable as the brand. Sure, the quality was nowhere near the same, but even remotely fashion-conscious people would recognize it as Missoni a mile away. I don’t think the same can be said for Jason Wu (most people I know have said ‘Who?” But then again I don’t live in a city known for fashion).

    I fear that the a-holes who flooded EBay with Missoni will be at it again, buying up all the goods and attempting to sell them at inflated prices. Hopefully there won’t be as much of a craze and everyone who wants some Jason Wu can get their hands on it.

    I love much, but not all, of this.  I would wear the crap out of the first 10 pieces, although they are all fairly short. (The middle-aged legs need skirts that hit just above the knee.)

    I never even try to nab any of these fancy designer goods at Target or H&M because my desire for them is out weighed by my hatred of grabby crowds. maybe I’ll give it a go this time and see what happens.

    I’m still kicking myself for not getting any of the Liberty of London stuff for Target, especially sad to have missed out on the dishes.

    Love a lot of this.  Don’t love – Wu’s direct quote that this was for “girls.”  I’m not crazy dogmatic on this and don’t mind so terribly the “american girl” reference, as that’s a thing.  But him saying he’s designing for girl’s makes me wonder what’s for my 6 year old.  Note that the Target rep says it’s for their “guests.”  There was a big discussion here with the Angelo Lambrou AOTL about the use of “girls” in fashion – in too many cases it is belittling.

      Looks to be for teens, which would make “girls” ok in my book — for more likely to appeal to young adults. When will they start doing these special collections for more women?

    Skirts too short for anyone over 30 (maybe 25), but the accessories will do.

    i’m crossing my fingers it isn’t mostly polyester. my main problem with the Liberty line was that so much of it was polyester. and that stuff just makes me sweat. :(

    I just went to Target’s website and there’s a bunch of Missoni stuff on there. Must be all the returns. Out of curiosity, I added an item to my cart, and it appeared to work. If you think you missed out this could be your second chance!

    Precious.  I’m right there with you on wishing that things like this happened more often with menswear.

    Not all the pieces are perfect, but there’s some I’d pick up. I love the black coat.

    As I’m the (cough) ‘wrong’ side of 45 and about 100 pounds too heavy for these, I’m clearly not in their target demographic. Having said that, I can’t see any of those necklines looking good on anyone with more than a B cup. Oh well, I’ll just have to wait until the Marni/HM collaboration in March AS LONG AS THEY MAKE THE CLOTHES BIGGER THAN TEEN SIZES.

    I’m not even going to think about wanting these clothes, since I’m not the correct shape for Target’s clothing, which appears to be “prepubescent boy”

    Cute clothes but anyone over 12 will look demented.

    That kitty bag and scarf WILL BE MINE!

    It’s a cute collection. I hope they actually make close to enough for demand this time – all I got of the Missoni for Target was a pair of socks my sister snagged for me. :-/

    Ooooh, that is adorable.  Note to self:  Target Trip – February 5th.  Pay full price – it just might be worth it.

    The square floral bag and kitty scarf will be mine!  Maybe the first yellow shirt and the black and white dress under the blue sweater.  I’m so glad I live in a town that is somewhat fashion-allergic, yet home to a SuperTarget.  Yay!

    you could hang the kitty bag on a hook in your house and consider it art…

    Just hand over the kitty tote bag right now and no one will get hurt.

    Every time Target does this kind of awesome collection, it’s sold out in the first five minutes. I’m not holding my breath. But DAYUM, I want so many of those pieces.

    Target is going to have to install metal detectors for all the shoppers who would cut a bitch for the kitty bag. I’m thinking of using pepper spray. Apparently, you can get away with the spray.

    Wow, wish we had Target in the UK, I love that cat bag!

    Why the hell anyone gets into this designer-does-discount-retailer thing and dukes it out in a brick-and-mortar store with hundreds of shoppers is beyond me.  I’d rather shop online at Rue La la or Gilt and get the real thing at a great markdown.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      Rue La La is still FAR more expensive than the Target stuff though.

        Yes but it’s still Target!

    The cat scarf and cat handbag are a little too grandma. And socks with penny loafers too childish.  But a few of the dresses are cute.  But WHAT IS UP with the milkmaid hair?

    …I must resist spending all of my pathetic checking account at Target after work on February 6th… I’ll be honest, I’m not usually one for wanting the designer items because I tend to dress in a pretty low key kind of way but man, I would kill for some of these. Wearable designer items? Yes please!

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      I really like Target’s designer items — they tend to be more practical than a lot of designer stuff, and it’s never so well-made and expensive that I worry about it constantly.  With 3 kids under 10, items that are terribly expensive are more headache than they’re worth.

    Snicker if you will, but this 43-year-old bearded and chunky gay man WILL be taking that Kitty Kat bag on fresh produce runs to my local farmer’s market.

    I’ve never considered myself a slave to fashion, but I must have ALL of those bags.  The cat one??  To. die. for.

  • http://twitter.com/0001909 ∆ .

    I think many people who are commenting about the ‘youthfulness’ of the collection may need to take a moment to see the individual pieces and realize these models are likely 5’8+ and thus the skirts will likely be a lot longer on many people.  I don’t think there’s anything particularly adolescent about accordion pleat skirts, button down shirts, or shift dresses–which is basically the entire collection.  I also don’t understand the claim that these necklines wouldn’t look good on those with larger busts.  Many of these necklines are classic crew or boatneck–and those cuts have been worn successfully by the likes of Marilyn Monroe (D cup).  Honestly, I’m not sure what necklines would be flattering for a large range of bust sizes other than crew or boatneck, considering that a low cut neckline would surely favor the smaller chested and something closer to a bustier neckline would favor only the larger chested.  I think crew/boatnecks are a great way for a designer to accommodate the needs of smaller and larger bust sizes.  

    Not to mention, clothes are pinned, clipped, and tortured for these sorts of photos, so it wouldn’t surprise me to find that these clothes have much larger busts than they would appear on the model (who likely has a smaller bust because that is the norm in the modeling industry).  As someone with a small bust, I can almost never find anything that fits my bust–even if I’m trying on a garment that’s being worn by a model with my measurements in an advertisement.  Honestly, I think women with larger busts are extolling the conveniences of having a small bust (and frame) far too much.  To put it simply, with vanity sizing, my size is literally being phased out of the women’s section in many American stores.  I think it’s creepy that I’m 25 and shop at the kid’s section, but women’s clothing is now too big for me so what can a girl do?  The funny thing is the women’s section was not too big for me in high school!  

    So, to put it simply, if you think that a girl with a smaller frame can just grab whatever she wants off the rack, then you’re sorely mistaken!  I make superb use of my tailor all the time!

    I cannot explain my excitement for February 6th.

  • Anonymous

    Barring another Missoni-esque online disaster, I should have a striped tote bag coming my way soon – fingers crossed!  The clothes I’m most interested in looking at further are only available in stores, and when I did the ‘find in stores’ search for the pieces individually, 2 stores in my area said ‘limited stock’ and all others said ‘out of stock’.  Is this collection more limited in terms of the number of stores?  

    • Katie Cristol

      If my experience this morning was any indication, the number of stores weren’t limited, but the items were quite literally “out of stock” and snatched up in minutes- racks picked clean within five or six minutes of the store opening (only a few size 12 or 14 tops and a couple of t-shirts left). It was as though the collection was never there at all. I’ve never see anything like it!

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Hey TLo, don’t know how much you check comments months after you’ve put up a post, but I just wanted to thank you again for posting about this collection! I’m honestly not that into fashion (I read your blog because I find you hilarious and because I love to throw in my own bitchy comments whenever I can! Though you are getting me much more interested in fashion…and I am becoming increasingly tempted to check out Revenge and Mad Men), but I love this collection and am currently wearing one of the dresses (the navy with the red/pinkish stripes at the bottom, 5th from the top in the left column above) at work. I have gotten more compliments today than I think I ever have at the office and it’s all thanks to you!! So thanks, TLo, for making me fabulous for the day! :-)
