We are only days away before the 3.1 Phillip Lim Collection for Target hits stores and, even though I was not at New York Fashion Week, Miami had a special preview a couple of weeks ago. I'm so sorry I was a bit delayed in posting these but my trip to London came sooner than I had expected. It was complete torture to be able to be in the presence of this fabulous collection and not be able to take a few items on the road with me!
I'm a huge fan of Target's collaborations with the hottest designers in the industry, and this is definitely one of my favorite. There really is no better way to welcome the fall season that with this fun-yet-sophisticated collection.
Here are some of my observations:
- The handbags are my favorite items. I want them all in all the colors! The one I can't live without? The large black tote (fourth photo below) which is perfect for the mom on-the-go, ladies who travel often, or simply those who need a bag that can keep up with their busy schedules.
- The quality is top-notch. Many of the pieces, especially the leather jacket for both men and women, will become a staple in your wardrobe.
- Those of us in Miami who don't get to experience a proper fall/winter season can still shop! Many of the dresses and tops are short sleeve or no sleeve which is perfect for those of us who need to keep cool. Our friends who already have a bit of chill in the air can layer with sweaters or jackets. Win-Win.
- Prices are so affordable! This is the best part of all Target's fashion-- you won't break the bank. Prices for the collection range from $19.99 to $299.00.
If you have shopped these special collections in the past, you KNOW you need to have a plan of action ready if you hope to get all the pieces you want the most. Target has learned a lot from previous lines and have amped up their website to be ready for the traffic generated by excited fashionistas. There are actually some pieces that will only be available online. Click here to read more!
