It is 1:35 PM EST as I start this post, just five and a half hours after my score of two handbags from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collaboration. I am still high from this morning's purchases, and I WANT ME SOME MORE COLLABS !!! So what have we got to look forward to for the rest of Fall. Well there's Isabel Marant for H&M which you are probably very well aware of already. I would love to post some images for you, but the lookbook is not out yet. Come on H&M and release the lookbook already for cryin' out loud! The collection soon to debut on November 14 will have clothing and accessories for women, teens, and ahem men. Yay, men can get some stylin' duds-for-cheap too from this Paris-based designer of effortless-chic!
What else? Well there's L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic coming out during the holidays. Expect a slim silhouette in jubilant hues perfect for Christmas dinner, New Year's eve, or any day you feel like being festive. This designer collaboration will launch on December 5, 2013 at select Banana Republic locations around the globe and Online. Included in this 50+ piece capsule collection will be sequin party dresses, bejeweled cardigans, tailored jeans, lace dresses, and of course pencil skirts (this is after all a collab between Banana Republic and L'Wren Scott, known for her ultra-feminine, form fitting, sexy designs. And pencil skirts are all of the above.) There will be accessories too like a clutch with a detachable chain that can double as a statement necklace or a bracelet. Oooh, I love versatility! My bet is on the clutch, and that is definitely going on my wish list.
Three original prints were created for this capsule collection: one with multi-colored lips, another with peonies, and the last in candy stripes. Colors for the prints are dominated by reds, violets, and pinks. Expect warm colors for this holiday collab. The only images I could find so far are the photo of a clutch and some sketches.
Sigh, until the next designer collaboration launch...
