Taking up a family legacy, Gia Coppola shot the commercial for the Zac Posen for Target collection. The commercial features the girl group, The Like. The commercial is inspired by “…old Beatles footage of them in their hotel room.”

In addition, The Like will be at the Zac Posen 24-hour Target pop-up store that is creating so much buzz. The pop-up store is happening next week from 11pm on 4/15 to 11pm on 4/16 at 481 Eighth Ave., at 34th St. in New York, NY.

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Rodarte has designed a collection for Target which will go on sale from December 20th to January 31st.

Here is a video from Style.com shot by 13 year old, Tavi Gevinson, writer of the Style Rookie blog.  She caught up with Kate and Laura Mulleavy as they were out in “the middle of nowhere”, aka North Dakota, shooting the ad campaign for the collection.

This collaboration is inspired by a trio of films: Harold and Maude, Bonnie and Clyde and Rosemary’s Baby.  The pieces will be priced between $9.99 to $79.99. As the muse for the line, Tavi has worked with the Mulleavy sisters since August.  What a lucky girl!

Anni Sui?!!!

Gossip Girl?!!!

Target?!!! (That’s pronounced “Tar-jae” for you all who don’t know 😉 ).

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that American fashion designer Anna Sui’s just made a collection especially for Target. Her collection hit the store racks this past weekend on September 13th.

The concept is based on the styles of the four main female Gossip Girl characters:

  • Serena van der Woodsen
  • Blair Waldorf
  • Jenny Humphrey
  • Vanessa Abrams

Sui explained her approach this spring in a press release, “My collection for Target combines elements of art and the spirit of New York City with my signature prints, silhouettes and use of color.”

She also loves making her designs accessible, “I have always been a fan of designer partnerships with mass retailers. I think it is a great way to bring fashion to everyone.”

She’s definitely managed to make the Gossip Girl look accessible to many with this collaboration.

What’s your favorite style and which Gossip Girl are you?

Are your tastes graceful yet edgy like Serena?*

With this line this much fun and with so many great pieces, do you really need to choose?

I have to admit, I’m digging both the concept and the designs.  Not all work for me, but that’s the point.  She’s got four distinct styles and there is something for everyone.

Target chose the right combination for sure: a hot designer and the hottest show on television!

With the pieces priced between $19.99 to $149.99, the collection clearly suits both the tastes and the budgets of Target customers because many pieces have already sold out!

The designer collaborations with Target must be doing well as another line is coming into stores soon.  According to WWD, the sisters behind the unique designs of Rodarte will introduce their first Go International Limited Collection for Target stores later this year.   The sister duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who are relatively new to the fashion world are known for their futuristic designs, use of marbeling patterns and asymmetrical silhouettes.

“What you’ll notice is an amazing eye for detail,” said Joshua Thomas, a Target spokesman. “It’s very feminine, yet very modern.”

The line will include 55 pieces and will be available in most Target Stores nationwide and online at Target.com from December 20th through February 6th.  The collection, which will include a rich mix of patterns and fabrics, will range in price from $9.99 for knee-highs to $79.99 for a leopard print jacket.

The great thing about these collaborations is how high-end designers are able to bring their talent to the masses.  It will be interesting to see how these designs will translate to everyday wear.  Are you excited?

isaac-mizrahiAs if his other jobs designing for Target, Liz Claiborne, and his eponymous line weren’t enough, Isaac Mizrahi spins his recent TV stint judging Bravo’s The Fashion Show into a deal with QVC to star in a “talk show-meets-hawk show.” Followers of Mizrahi know how hilarious and captivating he can be (full disclosure:  I’ve been a huge fan since the movie Unzipped came out in ’94), so if there’s any personality who can anchor 8 hours a month on a TV station better known for its shiny product lines ending in -ique, it’s him.

On a set that is currently being built at his NYC studio, Mizrahi will sell everything from cheesecake to furniture, in between segments that see Mizrahi take questions from callers and chat about his life.  Doug Howe, chief merchandiser for QVC, recalls that he was

“…fascinated by the way Mr. Mizrahi spoke, leaping from tea patterns to sheets then rain boots. ‘We were just sitting there watching him talk, thinking, ‘My God! On air, you are going to resonate so strongly with our consumers!’ ”

But will Mizrahi’s goods for QVC sell?  The TV network is banking on it:  first-quarter sales fell 10%, and all signs point to QVC’s hope that Mizrahi will do for its bottom line what he has done with rescuing Liz Claiborne’s company from its creative and financial drought.  Despite some stumbles in his early career, Mizrahi has proven as of late that his designs–and ultimately, the Isaac Mizrahi brand–can make money.

One thing’s for sure:  I’ll be watching.  The man’s selling goat cheese cake.
