Unless you’ve been living under a fashion rock, you KNOW about the upcoming Phillip Lim and Target collaboration (If not, click HERE for more info) you must check out the pictures below. Target unveiled the lookbook for the collection and I’m sharing my FAVORITES with you! Like I mentioned in my previous post about this collection, I am ALL ABOUT the accessories! The scarves and bags are pretty amazing and there is an almost identical version of the Pashli bag for $35!!!!!!
I get sooooo excited about these designer collaborations because it’s really a great way for the everyday fashionista to get her hands on designer pieces, and it brings high-end designers into every home. I hear different opinions on this topic sometimes and thought I’d share my opinion. I hold a firm the belief that it’s great all the way around from designer to consumer. Of course nothing in these collaborations is “handmade” or made with the best material money can buy, but sometimes it’s NOT about spending the most money! True fashion lovers know that at the end of the day, fashion is about design and ideas- a particular designer’s artistic spin on a piece of clothing or an accessory. We pay to wear this art and to make personal statements with it! These collaborations use affordable and more accessible materials and mass produce the pieces to come down to a low price point, but other than that you are STILL purchasing a piece of the designer’s art -in this case Phillip Lim spent months brainstorming and sketching this collection-and that my friends IS FASHION!!!!!! As a lover of high- end and low-end fashion, I feel that mixing is the best way to go! I never buy a piece simply because of the designer label and never pass up a piece simply because of the non designer label! Basically, I will wear Louboutins with a Forever21 dress!!!!! In other words- if I love it, I buy it and you should too!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars!!!!!!! September 15th!
