new collab: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target for fall
Well, it’s about time for a new designer collaboration, arriving just in time for fall 2013. Today Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) announced the COLLAB with designer Phillip Lim on an exclusive collection for women and men, beginning, Sept. 15. The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target features a range of fashion including accessories, shoes and bags.
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Phillip Lim. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target embodies Lim’s philosophy that clothing is meant to refine, not define. Rooted in a classic fall palette of neutral tones and prints, the collection will feature dresses, a trench, and a leather MOTO jacket for men for about $20-$300, with accessories and travel bags starting at about $20.
“Phillip is a designer we’ve had our eye on for years. His aesthetic is modern and sophisticated, and he shares Target’s vision of democratizing design,” said Trish Adams, senior vice president of merchandising, Target. “This fall, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will offer our guests a compelling reason to update their wardrobes, with an assortment of versatile, beautifully tailored must-haves for both women and men.”
