Get your wishlists ready, girls: Target and Neiman Marcus are joining forces for a limited-edition holiday collection designed by 24 CFDA designers. The collaboration will include more than 50 pieces for the budget-conscious buyer in the women's, men's, and children's apparel and accessory categories, as well as sporting goods and items for home and pets. The collection peaks at $499.99, though almost all items price under $60.
The full list of collaborators is somewhat jaw dropping, with major-league designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Marc Jacobs leading the pack of a lengthy list of fashion fan favorites, including Band of Outsiders, Altuzzarra, Marchesa, Prabal Gurung, Tory Burch, and Rag & Bone. Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, and Rodarte will also return for their second collaboration for the big box retailer.
According to a release from Target, the two stores will also donate $1 million to the CFDA to celebrate the partnership and provide support to the continuing effort to foster fashion designers in America.
The collection will arrive in Target and Neiman Marcus store locations and online beginning Dec. 1. Let's just hope their Internet servers are ready this time.
Thoughts on the collection and collaboration? Anyone missing from the designer list that you wish was on there? (Olivier Theyskens, Jessie Randall, Phillip Lim, and Kate Spade's Deborah Lloyd for me) Any ideas on what the mystery $499.99 item could be?
