FRIVOLOUS FRIDAYS: PHILLIP LIM X TARGET COLLECTION
9.15.13. LET THE LIMSANITY COMMENCE.
This past week, Limsanity took over the interwebs -- from Refinery29 to Fashionista.com -- everyone who remotely cares about fashion has taken notice and started buzzing about Phillip Lim's hotly-anticipated collaboration with Target. I've always been a fervent fan of Target's collaborations with high-end contemporary designers, because the collections don't end up becoming second rate diffusion lines. Rather, they're all very defined and cohesive in its own right.
The Phillip Lim collection is no different; it's comprehensive in scope but there's something that appeals to everyone -- even your most typical Target consumer. While I am pleasantly surprised by the sheer number of pieces, I am most happy about the reintroduction of Lichtenstein prints -- that boom sweater is a must-have on my list! This is also the first time, I must note, that a Target collaboration has included a whole menswear collection (!). I've broken down this massive, drool-worthy collection into a few curated pieces I absolutely love, because I am a firm believer in doing all your preparation before the big day rolls around. So mark your calendars, and I'll see you on the September 15th at a local Target. In Los Angeles. On the Westside. Bye.
