Miss Trish of Capri for Target

Target has announced that footwear designer Trish Carroll will create a limited edition shoe collection called Miss Trish of Capri for Target. The line will be available at select Target stores nationwide and on this upcoming Spring from April 5 through June 14, 2009.

Trish Carroll has designed for several major fashion houses including Celine, Ralph Lauren, Missoni and Oscar de la Renta. Her design philosophy is to create fashion that appeals to jetsetters at international resorts across the globe.

Launched in June of 2002, Miss Trish of Capri is Trish Carroll's Signature line of Capri Sandals. It all began with a flagship "cabana" store in the Hamptons. Trish's retail locations have included a "cabana" on the terrace of Frederick Fekkai's famed Beverly Hills salon on Rodeo Drive and an upscale salon on Via Encantada off Worth Ave. in Palm Beach. Current global expansion plans include new resort locations in St. Barths and St. Tropez. The Miss Trish of Capri collection references back to the jetset heyday of the 60's when Brigitte Bardot and Roger Vadim along with Jackie O were jetting from St. Tropez to Capri. As such, this footwear shares little in common with your average flip-flop.

The Miss Trish line usually retails for upwards of $200, so it'll be interesting to see how Trish Carroll translates her fanciful designs for the masses at a budget price-point.
