Rodarte for Target in Teen Vogue and Glamour

While we got a hold of the lace halter dress preview from Rodarte for Target some bit ago, Teen Vogue and Glamour are now publishing images of the dress in their magazines, including a look at the nude lace dress (I want!).

Marie Claire also published a few images (seen after the jump) of the pieces, set to hit Target stores on December 20th.

Loving or loathing the line so far?

Christian Louboutin Turned Diffusion Line Down

Christian Louboutin, shoe god

Even though it seems as if everyone is doing a diffusion line for either H&M, Target, or other major retail chain, there’s one designer who is counting himself out: Christian Louboutin.

While he’s happy to shell out his time and effort for Barbie, it seems as if the shoe designer has no other collaborations in mind: “They [H&M] proposed me to do the diffusion line and I declined… Not that I don’t think it’s an interesting idea, but it’s a lot of work really, so it’s just difficult for me to do it.”

When asked about whether he would consider such a project in the future, my dreams of purchasing an affordable pair of his godlike creations were crushed. A girl can dream, eh?

Prepare Yourself for the Jean Paul Gaultier-Target Collab

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Rumors, Sales, Women,

Jean Paul Gaultier to design for TargetIt really is the new rage among fashion designers. From Thakoon to Proenza Schouler and Anna Sui to Rodarte (as well as many, many more), Target is taking no clear break when it comes to penning the deals with collaborators.

Whose creations will we be expecting next? Jean Paul Gaultier! Rumors about Gaultier signing on with Target went around for awhile until receiving confirmation this weekend. In fact, I don’t think that I’ve been this excited for a diffusion line since Alexander McQueen.

For the Designer Collaboration series, Target asks that the designer select a muse: “Jean Paul Gaultier for Target pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture, the retailer said.”

Interesting… Well, we’ll just have to wait until March 7th, when the pieces hit stores (although I’m sure photos of the line will have leaked before then) to figure out just what that means.

First Look: Rodarte For Target

Rodarte for Target

Although its due date isn’t until December 20th, pictures of Rodarte’s Target line have surfaced on the internet, and now I’m even more anxious!

Not only do I want the Madonna-esque gloves and mustard (yes, that’s right) lace dress, but I think that I just may be more upset after having seen the images—my closet cannot wait two months for those pieces.

I have to admit that the ribcage graphic print dress (seen after the jump) is one that I do not fancy; however, there are 54 other pieces in the collection. Why can’t it be December 20th already?

One of the many events occurring under Fashion’s Night Out, Anna Sui and Target are opening a temporary shop on September 10 exclusively for the diffusion line.

Mark your calendars—the store will close on September 12!

Rodarte to Put Out Target Line

Rodarte's Fall 2008The fashion phenomenon known as Rodarte will soon be adding its name to the long list of houses that have created a diffusion line for Target.

Headed by the fabulous Mulleavy sisters, the couture-meets-edgy designs usually range in the thousands (per piece)—quite a far cry from the expected $9.99-$79.99 going for the Target line.

Target spokesman Joshua Thomas has assured potential buyers that they are not to be disappointed:

“What you’ll notice is an amazing eye for detail. It’s very feminine, yet very modern. The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur. The key with Rodarte is layering… There are stand-alone pieces and pieces that can be worn together to create an ensemble by layering different patterns, textures and prints.”

A favorite of celebrities Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman, the diffusion line is due to hit stores December 20th and be available until February 6th, with a total of 55 pieces.

Look Book for Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl-esque Line Leaks

.Anna Sui for Target

As if the fall release date wasn’t torturous enough, fans of Anna Sui and Gossip Girl now have the look book to fawn over until then.

The nineteen looks (which you can see after the jump) are based upon the individual styles of Blair, Jenny, Vanessa, and Serena. Of all sets, I think that Blair’s classy, high-collared looks are the cutest; Serena’s monochrome would have won if it weren’t for the vest and leggings with bows. Jenny’s black, red, and white palette strike me as punk-inspired and have potential; however, I tend to fear the prints and patterns used. Vanessa’s set is very bohemian, although I’m not sure as to why they chose such an ugly palette of orange and brown.

You can expect to see Anna Sui’s line hit Target stores and online starting September 13.
