Target Treasures: The Joseph Altuzarra Collection
According to ELLE.com, Target’s next designer collaboration will surely delight fashionistas everywhere. Womenswear designer Joseph Altuzarra has been commisioned to create a collection exclusively for the American retailer. Known for his daring prints, his edgy futuristic shapes, perforated leather and his attention to the most intricate detail, Altuzarra will be crafting his iconic silhouettes to deliver the limited-edition collection due out September 14. The highly anticipated array of designs will include nearly 50 pieces from lingerie to footwear – each for less than $100.
Altuzarra was inspired by his travels during the creative process, taking ideas from locations such as Morocco and Tokyo. He also experimented with edgy looks for the range, such as peplum finishes and embroidery. He hopes these details and hard work will appeal to customers looking for a unique piece of clothing.
When asked to speak about his Target collaboration, Altuzarra kept his female consumers in mind, “I didn’t want to assume that because we were doing a collection with Target that it suddenly had to be a much less interesting product,” he added. “The collection has to stand on its own, and it is details, volume, and tailoring that make a piece feel rich and special.”
“Target contacted us because of what our brand stands for, and they were very encouraging about having us really develop a collection that was respectful of what the Altuzarra brand means,” he explained.
We wanted to give you a sneak-peek of what to expect, but we must warn you – when this collection hits the stores, shop early. We suspect these fabuluous pieces will fly off the rack at an alarming speed!
