According to the Cut blog, Target is adding “Re” to its’ vocabulary. Relaunch, Revive, Resell. Instead of taking on a new designer, they are bringing back well sold collections from previous designers. Who can blame them? No one; this might be their greatest idea yet.
The frenzy Target creates when announcing some major designer will be creating a line of
cheap affordable clothing available to the everyman sometimes beats Bieber Fever. When they sell out, after 2 weeks, of the best products they have to offer, mobs form. The people want what they want, SO GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT.
But what about the idea that fashion is an industry that changes? In fact, wrapped all around the word is a chain of change. The dictionary, Oscar Wilde quotes, and, Hey, the idea that we have NEW fashion shows every 6 months, proves my point. Is this old Target venture staying true to what we know and, I guess, love about fashion?
Regardless of the ideals of fashion and bad backtracking, except when used as inspiration (we applaud you designers!), aren’t you giddy at the thought that a Target collection you may have missed can very well be in your area? And then, are you upset that you are giddy about a Target collection?
34 dresses of Luella Bartley, Tara Jarmon, Paul & Joe, Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Tracy Feith, Rodarte, Zac Posen, and Tucker will be at your shopping pleasure once more from March 13 to April 10.
