Cynthia Rowley - Back on Target
ROWLEY ROARS BACK: Target may be losing Isaac Mizrahi, but it is gaining an old friend in Cynthia Rowley. The designer is said to be returning to the mass chain this year with a new, limited edition brand called Whim by Cynthia Rowley. According to sources, Whim will not be part of the Go International initiative, and there will be no apparel. Instead, it will focus on novelty items such as outdoor games and inflatable pools, all given Rowley's irreverent touch. The collection is expected to hit Target stores at the end of April. Rowley is no stranger to Target, where she once had the Swell collection, which was quietly phased out more than two years ago.

I didn't even realize she had stopped designing for them. Quimby, I still have a pink pitcher from the first line she produced with Target, it probably matches your potholders

i still have some of her items (underwear and sheets) from the collaboration with that rosenweig lady for target. the line was called swell.

rowley and rosenweig are mortal enemies now. so i wasnt surprised when "swell" didnt come back to target.
