It’s another home run for Target collabs! This is Frugal dressing at its best. Python prints, swiss dot tops bedecked in pussy bows, thick belts to cinch in a womanly waist…Joseph Altuzarra’s are rich, sumptuous pieces – the kind you would expect to pay way more for than you will.
Jason Wu’s Spring ’15 collection gave way to my favorite show thus far. Simply put, it was beautiful. Sans bells and whistles, no stage antics: the clean, gleaming runway let the pieces, as well as the ladies wearing them, shine as they should.
For his mere 30 years, Joseph Altuzarra isn’t just an especially precocious designer. He makes elevated clothes for the fully realized, fully grown woman. Happily, his latest venture is no exception. Runway versus real life? Where many designers have trouble bridging the gap, Joseph has effortlessly solved the equation with his highly covetable, entirely wearable collection for Target.
It’s a well-documented fact that Beyoncé can do no wrong, but in case you’d forgotten, here she is in all her 3.1 Phillip Lim glory to remind you!
We played with mesh inserts last winter, but now that the weather is on our side, I say we go full-on mesh! It’s an edgier take on the ladylike lace so prominent in spring, but we’re not talking delicate mesh. I’m craving the loose, fishnet-like kind – the type that requires strategic layering.
I love the days when Target collection lookbooks are released. They let you prepare your shopping list for the big day when the pieces go up for sale, and thanks to London-based label Peter Pilotto, I have a feeling all of our wish lists are going to run long. Designers Pilotto and De Vos may be scaling back on price, but on print? Never.
