One of my favorite retailers, Target, just announced its next haute collab, due to hit stores (and Net-A-Porter) mid-September with one of my favorite young American designers. The uber-talent Joseph Altuzarra has created a special collection for Target that includes ready-to-wear (teaser preview sketch above), lingerie, and hang on to your shorts ladies….SHOES and ACCESSORIES! Now, I don’t know about you, but as much as I love snapping up the well-priced pieces from Target’s incredible designer collaborations, my personal ‘target’ is always always always the accessories. As much as the Chanel 2.55 bag is iconic to the house of Chanel, then so are the shoes, handbags and jewelry to these exciting, one-off collaborations.
While the idea that I have to wait almost 4 months to get my hands on Altuzarra’s designs for Target seems like a lifetime, it also gives me sufficient time to ponder what the designer, who is beloved for his highly sophisticated, sexy, power-to-the-woman esthetic (Carine Roitfeld is a muse of the designer), has conjured up for his die-hard fashion fans. And just to stir the pot a bit, above are some of the incredible shoes and accessories from various spring and fall seasons of his main collection. I admit, it's time to exercise patience, but as they say, good things come to those who wait.
