Target + Neiman Marcus Collection: Affordable gifts from top designers
I’ve been told on several occasions that New York girls have enviable access to clothing that others don’t. Well, barrier, be gone! Come tonight at midnight, Target and Neiman Marcus will bridge the gap with a joint holiday collection created by 24 high-end designers ranging from Diane von Furstenberg to Rag & Bone. The line presents an unprecedented bevy of clothes, housing goods, and accessories with a singular mission: affordable fashion for all. Here are my top 10 picks.
1. Band of Outsiders Hats ($29.99 for a set of two)
These are for the couture-coveting hipster in all of us. Brooklynites have perfected the art of expert dishevelment. Now you can steal the look for yourself and a bestie.
2. Brian Atwood Sunglasses ($39.99)
Celeb stylist Rachel Zoe dies for Brian Atwood’s sky-high platforms. Who knew he had a thing for blinged-out, Beatles-Esque sunnies, too?
3. Derek Lam Skateboard ($99.99)
When one spots a skateboard, the word “chic” isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. But devotees of 10 Crosby by Derek Lam know that the label personifies “unassumingly cool.”
4. Diane von Furstenberg Yoga Mat ($49.99)
Have you seen DVF’s legs lately? Naturally, the woman who invented the iconic wrap dress is a yoga enthusiast, so it’s only natural that she’d design a graphic mat destined for a dapper downward-facing dog.
5. Eddie Borgo Accent Box ($49.99)
Can’t afford Eddie Borgo’s glittery, rocker-edge baubles? Not to worry. His studded accent box is the next best thing for storing your own jewelry stash.
6. Jason Wu Girl’s Solid Dress ($59.99)
Little girls will learn all about the little red dress sooner or later. Set them on the right track with the au courant king of frill and fuss.
7. Judith Leiber Compact Mirror ($59.99)
On the low end, Judith Leiber’s creations cost upward of four figures—all the more reason to snatch up every compact in this collection. Hey, they make great stocking stuffers!
8. Marc Jacobs Pouch ($69.99)
How do I carry thee, Marc Jacobs Pouch? Let me count the ways: as a clutch, makeup bag, wallet ….
9. Rag & Bone Men’s Sweater ($69.99) and Boy’s Sweater ($49.99)
From bankers to band members, every guy I know has a sartorial crush on David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, the masterminds behind Rag & Bone. This is one bromance totally worth endorsing.
10. Thom Browne Men’s Blazer ($149.99) and Women’s Blazer ($129.99)
Ever since the whole Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake denim disaster, matching couple’s outfits are a major no-no. However, these Thom Browne blazers are the exception to the rule.
Starting December 1 at midnight, the Target + Neiman Marcus holiday collection will be available in both stores. Coupons won’t work for these high-demand items, but find plenty of savings on your other purchases with Target coupons and Neiman Marcus coupons.
