Jason Wu for Target

2012 is the year of designer collaborations. H&M has already announced their collaborations with David Beckham (due in February) and Marni (due in March), but this year’s excitement does not stop here – the Jason Wu for Target collection will hit the Target stores on February 5th 2012. It’s a ready-to-wear collection, apparel and accessories (handbags and scarves), and I find it very attractive. Except for one thing – I’m not a big fan of this “shoes and socks” style, I have never worn shoes and socks in the same time and I will never do. But otherwise, I really like this collection, and I will try to get a hold of some of these pieces when the collection launches in Target stores.

The prices will be very affordable -- $19.99 to $59.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $49.99 for accessories.

They say the collection will be available in stores only from February 5th through March 6th, but something tells me it won’t last that long. Bet on my last penny it will sell out within hours, just like it happened with Lanvin for H&M in 2010 or Versace for H&M in 2011 – it’s already a pattern.


2012 este anul colaborarilor designer. H&M si-a anuntat deja colectiile in colaborare cu David Beckham (in magazine in februarie 2012) si Marni (in magazine in martie 2012), dar noutatile din acest registru nu se opresc aici. Jason Wu lanseaza in curand o colectie in colaborare cu lantul de magazine nord-american Target. Este o colectie ready-to-wear, care cuprinde atat imbracaminte, cat si accesorii (genti si esarfe). Colectia Jason Wu for Target va fi lansata in magazinele Target din SUA si Canada incepand cu 5 februarie 2012.

Colectia mi se pare cat se poate de draguta si purtabila, cu exceptia unui detaliu – nu ma incanta moda sosetelor combinate cu pantofi. Nu am adoptat niciodata acest stil, si nici nu intentionez sa o fac vreodata. Dar dincolo de asta, colectia imi este pe plac. Preturile vor fi destul de accesibile -- $19.99-$59.99 pentru haine si $19.99-$49.99 pentru accesorii.

Unele surse mentioneaza faptul ca aceasta colectie va fi disponibila in magazine pentru doar o luna – incepand cu 5 februarie pana pe 6 martie 2012. Dar ceva imi spune ca nici nu va rezista atat de mult in magazine, daca nu cumva va fi vanduta pe nerasuflate chiar din prima zi, in ore, asa cum s-a intamplat cu Lanvin for H&M sau Versace for H&M.

Jason Wu este un tanar creator de moda american de origine taiwaneza, care si-a inceput cariera de designer in 2006. La varsta de doar 29 de ani, este deja un darling al modei americane. Printre clientele sale se numara Michelle Obama, Ivana Trump, actrita si modelul Amber Valetta. André Leon Talley, binecunoscutul editor de moda al revistei Vogue USA, care este si consilierul de stil al cuplului prezidential american, este cel care l-a prezentat pe Jason Wu lui Michelle Obama.

O alta colaborare designer pe care Jason Wu a realizat-o in trecut este colectia Jason Wu for Creative Nail Design din mai 2011.

Iata si colectia Jason Wu for Target:

  5. Target is one of my favorite stores. I shop at Target almost every week. They always have so many cute things. I bought a lovely elegant handbag this weekend and I'm thinking about going back for more :))) Just like shoes, you can never have too many handbags - to match all your outfits. Besides, they are having amazing sales - up to 70% off. Yay! :)

    1. Buna Roxy, uite eu niciodata n-am fost la Target, dar am de gand sa recuperez. :) Target a aparut in Canada de-abia anul trecut, si inca n-am avut ocazia sa fac shopping la ei. Aici la mine in zona am vazut un magazin Target aproape, si vreau sa merg acolo sa vad cum este. Nu stiu daca magazinul respectiv va gazdui colectia Jason Wu for Target, avand in vedere ca e un magazin de suburbie, dar sa vad cum stau lucrurile.
