Next up, Thefrenchy for Target! But seriously, I agree, I just read "x" for Target threads on here, none of them the least bit interesting. Have these two even designed before? Random! I don't see how this one will appeal to the average American Target shopper.

^i agree heatheranne....although these two have a great eye for things,and have for the last decade,i don't recall they ever even having an in-house collection at their shop. seems quite random,indeed. i'm not even sure what their point of view will be design-wise. nouveau riche quirky? that sort overly fashion-slave mentality but slightly more off-kilter. that's basically how i've perceived their approach for their shop.

I don't believe the Webster has an in-house collection either, yet they still managed to create something. I'm really curious as to what this collection will look like. Who knows...

more details from wwd. the press preview was yesterday.

Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini, co-founders of Kirna ZabÍte, the SoHo specialty store, created 100 styles for Target, including original prints with signature motifs such as kisses. A leather moto jacket is $199.99. Thereís a group of pink, gray and black items, necklaces with round baubles, and shiny red and black evening bags. Easley and Buccini liked the way the Kirna ZabÍte for Target collection turned out so much, they will reportedly offer it in the SoHo store.

Two wrongs don't make a right...
...

this whole project Target has going on where they get store owners to 'design' is just odd...

it's like asking someone who eats a lot of food to prepare a meal...
just because you can eat- doesn't make you a chef!...
the best you're going to get is a boiled egg...


i guess it's not that different than any random celebrity slapping their name on something...though neither one holds much interest for me...

i saw a preview of a bunch of pieces of the line in bust magazine (with tavi G on the cover) the clothes were styled ridiculously, but it looks like the sizing is much better than the webster for target line. could still be promising.

btw,the guys will be getting their own shop collaboration about the same time KZ with the NYC men's shop,known for it's selection of robert geller,junya watanabe,common projects et al,ODIN. i actually saw some of those pieces on the target website and finally the lower mass-market is getting something interesting on the menswear front. definitely in line with what we're seeing in men's stylings from H&M,zara,gap and j.crew to a degree---but cheaper.
