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?*
Do you have a thing for baby-doll dresses and bows like Blair?*
Do you have an daring, devil-may-care approach to fashion like Jenny?*
Are you a bohemian with a distinct Brooklyn flavor like Vanessa?*

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!
