Rodarte For Target


I was really excited to hear that my favorite line, Rodarte, was doing a line for Target because lets face it, when am I ever going to be able to afford Rodarte otherwise?
When I thought about it I was pretty concerned- how on earth could Rodarte translate their very specific, and beautiful, aesthetic at that price point? They can't...can they?
It turns out I was right- but not entirely. Rodarte & Target offered the press a sneak peak today and Paper blogger, Julia Frakes snuck a few cell phone pics for twitter.
I'm pleasantly surprised by what I see!
The colors, shapes, and use of tulle and ribbons keep things as whimsical and pretty as the real line.
Plus, unlike most Target collaborations, the Mulleavy sisters have designed a huge collection and it's all priced at under $80!
Expect to see the collection hit stores in time for the holidays!

UPDATE: Target sweetly asked me to remove all pictures from the Target Long-Lead Editor preview of the Rodarte collaboration. I can't wait to see the full collection and give you guys the proper introduction that it deserves closer to the holidays! Thanks for understanding!

I am so excited! Sometimes I don't like the lines, but this one I think I will enjoy. The preview pics do look promising!

I bought a wicked cute Tracy Feith for Target dress earlier this summer- his line was one I really enjoyed.
