The retailer has recently opened three stores in New York City alone, with two additional locations in Long Island and New Jersey (blink and you may have missed the Joe Fresh East Hampton outpost which was up and running for the season, this past summer) .
Talk about fashion mayhem! After Target released a new line featuring Italian designer Missoni on September 13th, not only did crazed fashionistas clear the racks of their local Targets, but they also managed to crash the Target website all in one day! The goal was to provide fashion savvy individuals with great designer styles at affordable prices. While they did just that, the designers did not expect for the entire collection to sell out that quickly. With markup prices ranging from 25% to 400%, people are now paying big bucks on eBay for the Missoni Target line. This counteracts the plan of creating a designer clothing collection at a discounted price. In this collection for Target, you can tell it’s Missoni from a mile away, with it’s bright zigzag patterns and bold colors. The collection includes over 400 pieces, from boots to bags, knits and flats, to make-up accessories and home and kitchenware items. Now available only on eBay, if you want to spend more than double the retail price that is.
I've personally always been a fan of over-the-top animal print sweaters because of how hilarious and whimsical they tend to be, so you can imagine my delight when I discovered that London-based designer Peter Jensen had taken the classic bold-printed sweater that was once only suitable for an ugly sweater-themed party and turned it into a winter 2010 must-have.
Jensen's collaboration with Urban Outfitters, PJ, will be an 11-piece women's-only collection hitting stores in early December. Besides bringing your grandmother's chunky knit reindeer sweater into the limelight, Jensen will also include peter pan-collared dresses and shirts, triple collar gingham flannel shirts, cozy sweater dresses, and long maxi-style skirts. The best part about this whole collaboration is that it is actually affordable with all of Jensen's pieces being under $100. I absolutely cannot wait for this collection to hit stores. Check back with Joonbug for more on the collection once it hits the racks.
