If there’s one thing the retail giant Target is known for, it’s their great designer collaborations. From Missoni and Zac Posen toÂ Anna Sui to Proenza Schouler, they’re known forÂ taking high style and making it super affordable for the masses. This season is noÂ different. This time around, Target has teamed up with luxury retailer Neiman Marcus for a collection unlike no other. Launched Dec. 1, the Holiday CollectionÂ features more than 50 limited-edition products, perfect for gifting orÂ keepingÂ for yourself. The collection includes everything from housewares andÂ children’s wear to sporting gear and more. The genius thing about it is it includes piecesÂ from 24 of the fashion industries top designers. DianeÂ Von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, Tracy Reese and Oscar de la Renta are just a few of the top-notch designers on the list. (Shop the looks here.)
Tracy Reese designed two pieces, both of which I picked up: dessert plates that incorporate her fashionable prints and aÂ sequinÂ blouse in her signature style that could easily hang alongside her higher end designs.Â Both pieces are well below the designer’sÂ regular retail prices and embody everything that theÂ collaboration stands for: affordable luxury.
Whether you’re like me and want to get something for yourself, or shop for someone on your holiday list, it’s best to get it fast. TheÂ Holiday Collection ranges from $7.99 to $499.99—with most items less than $60—and isÂ available at both Neiman Marcus and Target.
