I can hardly contain myself when I got the news that Phillip Lim is the next designer collaborating with Target!
The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection for women and men will be available September 15th at most Target stores and Target.com. The limited edition collection features a range of apparel and accessories, including shoes, bags and travel accessories.
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Phillip Lim. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”
Come September you can expect to see a “classic fall palette of neutral tones and prints,” the collection features more than 100 items and ranges in price from $19.99 to $299.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $59.99 for accessories. Standout pieces include bags, dresses and a trench coat for women, and shoes and a leather moto jacket for men. Travel accessories, such as a duffle and multipurpose pouches for women and men, round out the collection.
I seriously can not wait to see the full collection! In the meantime check out the video and sketches below for a sneak peek!

In the space of two weeks, Patrick Robinson has signed on for another new job. The designer has been named creative director of Armani Exchange, the sporty younger arm of the brand he once worked for, Giorgio Armani.
According to WWD, Robinson’s responsibilities will “range from product development to providing creative direction in marketing areas.” He’ll report to Armani Exchange’s CEO, Harlan Bratcher.
Robinson was last in the news exactly one week ago today when he revealed plans to start a sportswear line called Paskho, which he’s funding through Kickstarter. In hisKickstarter post, Robinson said he lost his passion while he designed for big brands like Anne Klein and Perry Ellis, and wanted to focus on something smaller. “Somewhere between Giorgio Armani and the Gap, I had stopped designing clothes and had instead become the guy who manages the people who design the clothes,” he wrote. “I love to design clothing. Simple, beautiful, comfortable clothing that people can afford. It was this desire that led to my new endeavor: Paskho — ancient Greek for passion. Paskho is my passion.”
