I was reading the September issue of People StyleWatch and saw the one-page highlight of the upcoming designer collaboration coming to a Target near you. I can't believe Missoni is collaborating with Target. Of course, I am super excited! I can't afford a regular Missoni sock, and to think on September 13th when the line debuts online and in-store, I will actually be able to afford a whole outfit -- I am over the moon!
I was super stoked when Jean Paul Gaultier did his collaboration with Target, and I have been waiting a long time for the next designer collaboration. It's been since March of 2010 that the Jean Paul Gaultier collection for Target came out. Krikey, that's more than a year and a half ago! I don't consider the collaboration with William Rast a big deal which came out during the holidays of 2010. It was eh... Finally, another real designer collaboration for Target is coming our way.
Missoni for Target boasts a 400 piece collection featuring clothes for women, men, girls and babies. There will also be accessories, housewares, linens and a bicycle? Wow, a bicycle too! That is so kRazee !!! Of course the pieces will be affordable with prices ranging from $2.99 for a 4-pack melamine appetizer plates (that is sooooo affordable) to $599.99 for a 4-peice patio sectional furniture. This collection is massively impressive.
I am so blown away by this collection. I hope I get some of the pieces I want in time because I am sure many items will sell out. Missoni for Target will be available until October 22 in-store or until supplies run out. Some online exclusive items will have an extended run until early December.
I hope those eBay resellers don't hog up this collection and leave some for some real Target shoppers like me. I'd hate to find out how much of this collection is going to end up in the secondary market with hiked up prices. YIKES ! I know that is going to be crazy.
So what do I have my heart set on you ask? Well, the Missoni for Target Space-Dye Knit Cardigan for $44.99 and Space-Dye Sleeveless Sweater $29.99 is a must. I hope to get my hands on all three of the silk scarves selling for $19.99 each and some of the tights for $16.00. I hope to get a couple sets of those appetizer plates -- that will be great for a party. The rest, I'll just have to see what I can get my hands on in my size.
This is sure going to add up, but oh it will be so worth it.
