Target's 20th Anniversary Collection drops tomorrow; are you ready??

With much fanfare, around 300 retrospective pieces are returning from Target’s archives for the 20th Anniversary Collection that launches this Saturday. So what can you expect tomorrow? Well according to Vox, there will be “Black Friday level” excitement for this launch. I'll assume that the Missoni offerings in particular (pictured here) will be a sellout.

Now the fine print... the Anniversary Collection will be available at all Target stores and on Target.com beginning Sept. 14, while supplies last. Designer collections and items will vary by store and purchases are limited to 5 identical items (same size and color). Prices range from $7 to $160 and will be offered in sizes XS-3X for women, S-XXL for men, XS-XL for kids and 0-3M-5T for toddlers and babies.

The designs featured in the Anniversary Collection are listed below along with the years their collabs were released:

Michael Graves (1999-2013)
Philippe Starck (2002)
Stephen Sprouse (2002)
Isaac Mizrahi (2003-2009)
Erin Fetherston (2007)
Proenza Schouler (2007)
Thakoon (2008)
John Derian (2008, 2010)
Anna Sui (2009)
Rodarte (2009)
Stephen Burrows (2010)
Zac Posen (2010)
Harajuku Mini (2011-2012)
Missoni (2011)
Jason Wu (2012)
Philip Lim (2013)
Altuzarra (2014)
Lilly Pulitzer (2015)
Mariemekko (2016)
Hunter (2018)

What's your plan, readers? Will you stay up into the wee hours to buy these items on Target.com (fingers crossed their site doesn't crash!) or try to brave the potential lines at stores?  I for one will be sitting this one out. I still have some of my Missoni items, including the candle shown above, zigzag print wine glasses and coffee mug, and outside of a few stray items by the designers listed above, there isn't anything I want bad enough to battle the crowds for.

New at Target: Levi's Red Tab

Target’s partnership with Levi Strauss & Co. goes back nearly a decade, when they first started selling DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans. The brand quickly became a Target staple, offering exceptional fit and style at a great price.

Now Target is expanding their denim portfolio to include the Levi’s® Red Tab label. Starting today, Target will offer a curated assortment of men’s and women’s Red Tab products in more than 50 stores across the country near college campuses and highly-trafficked urban locations. The assortment of Red Tab products featuring jeans, tops and jackets is also available on Target.com.

Clearance Alert: Hearth and Hand with Magnolia

I've found that Target doesn't like to advertise when their Hearth and Hand line goes on sale. In other words, you usually won't see this brand on their yellow clearance endcaps (unless its just a couple of random items) and instead, they quietly put it on sale in plain sight. So if you look really closely at this pic, you'll see tiny yellow 30% off stickers blanketing this H&H selection. Target is probably clearing it out to make room for their latest Hearth and Hand offerings, coming Aug. 18th.

Fab Find: Project 62 Moroccan Shag Rug

I wish the picture here did this rug justice! I just bought this runner from Project 62 at Target, as well the matching 2x3' size. These rugs have rave reviews on Target.com, and I can see why: they look like something you'd find at West Elm or Pottery Barn. And the wool/nylon blend rug is durable, yet soft to walk on.

Here's the description from Target's website: Playful colors and textures in the Moroccan Wedding Shag Area Rug from Project 62™ are reminiscent of art deco and architectural styles. Harsh lines are softened by plush outlines, which create a mix of high and low pile throughout the carpet. You'll find this makes the perfect complement to most decor styles, as it has some texture and depth, but remains neutral.

Target is bringing back 20 years of designer collabs...

Vogue reports that Target is celebrating 20 years of its Design for All program by reissuing 300 pieces from the original collaborations. This new collection will be available from September 14 for a limited period of time both in stores and online. A documentary about the program is in the works. There will be an exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York opening in October. And lifting the curtain on everything is a collectible Rizzoli book, being published on September 3.

Vogue reports that if you never got that goth-glam Rodarte dress from 2009, or ached for something from the coolster-prepster collection that Proenza Schouler had in 2006, or missed out on 2011’s Missoni-mania, here's your second chance. Shown here is an image from Target's Pop Art Stephen Sprouse collaboration from 2002. For the full list of designer re-issues and more information, check out this article on A Bullseye View.
