Once November hits, you know what that means…it’s all about holiday. And now that we’re well into the month, you really can’t avoid it. So if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right? With a very cool charitable designer collaboration launching soon, I thought it was the perfect time to share with you some of my favorite gifts that keep on giving.
We’ve already had the big discussion about designer collaborations but that conversation is too big for just one post. With this morning’s breaking news of Joseph Altuzarra being announced as the next designer to collaborate with Target, there’s a lot to chat about. But I wanted to go a different direction today — it seems that us fashion folks get wrapped up in the H&M and Target collaborations, but there’s so many more out there that deserve equal attention. Like what? How about the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund x J. Crew…
My feelings towards designer collaborations (re: Isabel Marant x H&M, 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target, etc) have been very mixed. There’s been plenty of articles written either for or against them but after reading a certain story on Fashionista.com yesterday it inspired me to think of this debate in a whole new way. This is a big topic in the fashion industry right now so I’d love for you to weigh in.
Even though people have been talking holiday for the last month or so (which is crazy), I think it’s a much better time to discuss gifts now that it’s November 1. Still early, but a little more acceptable. And in exactly one month from today you’ll be able to shop the Neiman Marcus x Target holiday collection…which I’m pretty excited for. Photos of the full collection are now out, along with the sketches from each designer to show their inspiration.
