Just In: The Victoria Beckham for Target Lookbook

A Bullseye View has just posted the lookbook for the upcoming Victoria Beckham for Target collab, and I'm not sure how to feel about it. The baby, toddler and girls clothing is cute enough, but the womens wear is a mixed bag. Divided into 5 style collections - Circus Scallops, English Lace, Clever Bunny, Pressed English Flowers and and Pop Floral - this collab is heavy on gingham, paisley, mod prints, florals, and basic black & white with pops of bold colors.

It's hard to say how sizing will run, because of course on the models everything looks perfect. The pants look cut long and lean, which means they won't be a match for me. And the looser-fitting shift dresses look rather short, so it'll be interesting to see how they'll translate to real-life bodies. On the positive side, for the first time in Target collab history, plus sizes will be offered in select stores (and not just online).

What do you think, readers? After looking at the pics, are you excited for this collab? And if so, what will you be buying?

Just checked out the link to the lookbook (thank you a ton!) and it's a wait and see for me. As a 40-something, the looks just skew a little too young for me, but some of the dresses may work for a cocktail event. I'm not holding my breath for workmanship though, the last time I actually bought anything from one of these collaborations was the Jason Wu one and lets just say it was a one time wear deal.

I get excited about every collaboration but ultimately I'm disappointed. The way they get these price points is very cheap materials and poor workmanship. I can't think of a single thing I've kept from any of the past collabs. Sad but true.

@SunnyDay, I've kept some Target collab pieces over the years, but not many. I still have a Missoni maxi dress (and matching cardigan), a Lilly Pulitzer shift dress, and a Phillip Lim blazer. All 3 of those lines seemed a bit better in regards to quality/workmanship compared to other Target designer collabs, IMO.

It's funny with these collabs, there seems to be five pieces or so that are way above the mark quality wise and the rest, meh. I still have the striped sweater dress from Missoni plus the Lazar cut cardigan and a Phillip Lim bag, but that's it. But it's always fun to look.
