Wishlist: The Entire Phillip Lim x Target 2013 Collection

Phillip-Lim-Target-Photos-Lookbook-Prices

You know what? I love designer collabs! I know that a lot of people are on the fence about big-ass-deal designers collaborating with fast fashion retailers, but for some, this is the only way to add a “designer” piece to their wardrobe, so if collabs help everyday people look and feel good about themselves, what’s not to love? Of course, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target isn’t the same as 3.1 Phillip Lim, but what it is – is pretty damn awesome!

From the simple, yet oh-so-chic trench coats, to the lovely floral shirt dress, to Pashli lookalike bags, women all over the world (well, wherever there’s Target…or eBay) will be able to snag a piece of Phillip Lim’s genius designs. And my-oh-my, there is a lot of genius here. While I am not particularly fond of the BOOM pieces, I am all over the office-appropriate separates (that tuxedo blazer, you guys!), classy dresses for any occasion, and sexy/sweet silk PJs…Yup, stylish pajamas are part of this collection. Amazing, right?

September 15th is almost a month away, and I honestly am already feeling the pressure. Am I going to line up early? Which Target store am I going to visit first? Which second? The plan of “attack” is crucial with a collab like this one. And seeing how Target is still a relatively new concept in Toronto (and Canada), I wonder if that means that lineups will be better or worse? With prices ranging from $20 to $3oo, there’s definitely something for everyone in this collection…and I hope that we all get to grab the pieces that we covet the most…without too much violence. Now if you just pass me that floral shirt dress, no one will get hurt!

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection to Launch This Fall!

phillip-lim-for-target

Amazing news, you guys! Designer Phillip Lim is collaborating with Target on a Fall collection to launch on September 15, 2013…and it will be available in Canada! Amazing, right?!

“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said  Lim. “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 modern and chic, but still very accessible.”

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will feature a range of apparel and accessories, including bags and various travel pieces,  ranging in price from $19.99-$299.99 with most items under $49.99, and I seriously can’t wait! So happy that we finally won’t have to trek to the states to do some designer collab shopping. Now, excuse me, while I go and freeze my credit card in a block of ice…to be defrosted in September!

New York Fashion Week: Continued

NYFW is commencing today, and I have yet to post about my faves so far. I will try to do a summarizing post around the weekend, but in the meantime, I have a few photos of the collections that caught my eye. I promised myself, that next year I won’t be writing from the sidelines, but will be front and centre in NYC, smelling the perfume and watching the models strut their stuff at Bryant Park. One more New Year’s resolution to add to the list.
