Let’s be real: The much-anticipated Neiman Marcus for Target
last month was on the underwhelming
side (so much so, in fact, that the retailer is actually
struggling to get some of
the items—now discounted 70 percent—off its shelves). Somehow,
Oscar de la Renta and
dog bowls don’t mix well.
So we have ultra-high hopes for the next designer in Target’s collaboration lineup:
Prabal Gurung. The designer is relatively young to the industry—his label is just
three years old—but his edgy-chic designs have already scored some major clients,
including Lady Gaga and Michelle Obama.
The massive collection contains more than 80 ready-to-wear clothing items and accessories—think
mixed-media dresses, floral blouses, and strappy sandals in spring-appropriate shades
such as Calypso Coral. The designs are as thoughtful as those in Prabal Gurung’s actual
line, and with nothing over $50, we’re thinking this collab could be one of Target’s
so plan to shop early on the 10th.
