The Odd Couple
These two power retailers have recruited 24 designers to create limited-edition gift items. Is anyone having flashbacks of the Missoni release? I’m hoping that Target has made a few adjustments for this event! Some of the designers will step out of the product category comfort zone and others are staying with what they know best. Most items will be priced under $60 with the prices ranging from $7.99 to $499.99. Neimans stayed very close to the design process which resulted in products made with real leather and silk, hand beading, hand-blown glass and 18K gold! Watch for ad campaigns to begin in the fall.
The collection drops into Neiman Marcus stores, Target stores, NeimanMarcus.com and Target.com on December 1st, so mark your calendars! The two companies are jointly making a $1 million donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America to celebrate the partnership and affirm their continual support the American design community.
