The wait is almost over! In May, we reported that Phillip Lim was the next designer on deck for the newest Target collaboration, and last night we scored a preview to his entire collection of over 100 pieces. The line includes clothing divided into morning, noon and evening looks, and we’re obsessed with the dresses, embellished sweaters, faux leather satchels, scarves, and blouses ($20 to $300) among the covetable offerings. ”Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” the designer said in a statement. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire—one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.” Plus, Lim didn’t leave the boys out of the mix — the capsule also contains an array of men’s clothing and accessories, like trousers, shoes, and more. Click the photo to get your first look at the collection, and get ready to hit the ground running when the items arrive at Target stores and target.com on September 15th. Plus, scroll down to see a video on how the entire lookbook came together!
Target has brought us some amazing designer collaborations—from Missoni to Prabal Gurung—and now, the retailer just announced the next one on deck: 3.1 Phillip Lim! The New York designer, who is loved by Kate Hudson, Diane Kruger, and Rachel Bilson, created a collection for Target that includes over 100 pieces, from clothing for men and women ($20 to $300) to accessories like shoes, bags, and travel goodies ($20 to $60). “Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” Lim said in a statement. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire—one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.” Target also released a 51-second video detailing Lim’s girl-on-the-go inspiration (which is SO YOU), so watch it above and save the date for September 15, when the collection lands in stores and on target.com.
