Watered-down Wanders...

Apparantly, I'm not the only one disappointed by Marcel Wanders new collection for Target. Right on the heels of my post the other day, Fast Company published an article echoing the same sentiments. To quote: "Wanders played it safe. Too safe. Safer-than-Pottery Barn safe."

The article also has pictures of - as well as a direct link to - Wanders look-book for the proposed Target collection. Alas, his most fun and fanciful creations seem to have never made it past the concepting stage. Like this adorable origami deer (shown) that could have taken shape as a Christmas card, placecard holder, or even a tree-topper. What a shame that Target watered down Wanders!

Great site. Thanks!

Yes, a bit disappointing ... so we "wandered" a bit and found some lovely Poinsettia paper plates and napkins at Target. A few photos are at:
