Target quietly restocks some Jason Wu bags...


Since late last week, Target stores (at least in my area) have quitely re-stocked some styles of the Jason Wu for Target bags. Mostly I've seen the ivory straw clutch and blue-print flap bag (both pictured here) as well as many of the straw saddle bags. I also spied one of the canvas striped tote bags, but alas, no cat totes!

In some stores, Target has bunched the few bags they have left with the Jason Wu clothing, so be sure to check the clothing racks in addition to the accessories aisle. Unfortunately, Target.com doesn't seem to replenishing supplies of Jason Wu bags or scarves online.

I was tempted by the ivory straw clutch, but resisted as honestly, it's something I'd probably only use once or twice. I did notice, as some readers have commented, that the stitching is uneven on some bags, and on others the clasps seem crooked and aren't on straight. If you do find one of the Jason Wu bags in the store, I'd recommend you check it over carefully for quality issues before buying it.

My local Target still has a ton of inventory from the initial stock --including sweaters, dresses, tops, AND bags. I guess Jason Wu for Target just didn't appeal to my neighborhood.

They have a bunch of bags in my store right now, but I think they are pretty unremarkable for the price, and I also noticed on the straw bags that the stitching is uneven.
What I really don't like is how they say "for Target" in huge letters on the bag. Devi Kroell and Anya Hindmarch did the same thing, and I thought it was kind of tacky...

Amy: agreed. One of the best (and earliest) handbag collabs Target did was with Rafe, and I don't think they had "for Target" on the outside label (or if they did, it was a lot more subtle....).

I found 6 wagon wheel scarves Sunday. This was at a out of town Target I don't usually shop in so I wasn't sure if it was a restock, return or what. Very happy to grab one for myself as I totally was shut out of all accessories on day 1. My local store did have a big purse restock, Just like those who commenteds about the Target name on purse clasps, why did the actual Target logo appear so large on the scarf. The big Target logo is a turnoff for me.

Alyssa and Amy, which Target stores are you referring to??? I would love to get one of those Jason Wu bags, but of course I didn't beat Ebay sellers in getting there... Thanks for sharing!!!
