Fresh off the presses, Parabal Gurung has just signed a contract to collaborate with target next year. Our source, accessories magazine state that clothing will be as low as 19.99 and jewelry will start at 12.99! Accessories magazine prepared this quote:
“I am so thrilled to be working with Target on a collection that brings my designs to a wider audience,” said Prabal Gurung. “This collection was inspired by love and if Target’s guests can feel even a little bit of the love that I felt while I was designing this collection, then I will consider it a job well done.”
We are thrilled and the dates are already announced: the collaboration is set to hit stores and online for six weeks only (Feb. 10 to march 23, 2013). Here is what we think the collection with feature:
I think cold shoulder styles would be something that would be seen at Target. I am thinking more sweet heart styles, cut-out shoulders and one shoulder styles because they are easy to reproduce at the lower end cost. I also expect structured pants with pronounced waist lines since I have seen this style repeated in his runway collections.
Print wise expect psychedelic and watercolor like floral prints to show up on everyday staples like t-shirts and shorts. We can’t to see it all so mark your calendars and we close with another quote for Accessories magazine:
The retailer says the collection “reflects Gurung’s distinct aesthetic, with impeccable tailoring and feminine silhouettes, and features striking prints, hot-hued palettes and sleek styles,” such as “refined dresses, mixed-media skirts, edgy blazers and striking shoes.”
Launch date: Feb. 10 to march 23, 2013
