Black Friday may be behind us already, but the exclusive deals, sales, and seasonal gifts are just beginning to emerge from major retailers. For the fashion conscious, the holiday season is probably the highlight of the year. That’s because those out of reach designer labels trickle down their products to the affordable mainstream market for our buying pleasure. Target and Neiman Marcus have joined together just for this occasion, bringing a beautiful collection of high fashion gifts to an eager public.
The Target + Neiman Marcus collection is an exclusive set of gifts designed by top fashion designers for the holidays, but also in celebration of the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s 50 Anniversary. Some of the 24 designers involved in this glamorous project are Marchesa, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs,Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta. Fashionistas should be drooling at this point. If those names don’t ring a bell, these designers are the cream of the crop in the fashion world. They design everything from celebrity gowns to menswear, architectural accessories to home décor. Not surprisingly, this Target collection contains all of that and more.
“The quality of the product is outstanding and the collection of designers is unprecedented. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Neiman Marcus’ chief marketing officier, Wanda Gierhart in a recent interview. The fifty-plus gorgeous gifts range from Derek Lam skateboards to Marc Jacobs pouches. There is something for every person in your family, at every price point (from $7.99 to $499.99). You can browse all of the gifts on Target’s online “lookbook” here.
My favorite thing about this collection is that everything is so unique, and this will make a great impression on your gift recipient(s) this holiday season. “Each piece reflects its designer’s unique point of view, but the category of goods they chose to design may surprise some people,” says Gierhart. She is certainly right about that.
This Tory Burch beverage tumbler is amazingly chic and perfect for a preppy girl. Guys, this is the perfect gift for that woman in your life who wants to match their Tory Burch flats with their coffee container.
The best thing about this sweater from rag & bone is that it comes in both men’s & boys sizes. You can make a little boy excited about fashion because he’ll be matching his grown-up dad. Or you can also buy it for that “misunderstood scene girl” for a hipster/androgynous look.
Don’t forget to buy a gift for mom! This jewelry box designed by the legendary Diane Von Furstenberg is the perfect gift that can hold more gifts inside. You’ll save so much by buying this that you can get her a little something from Tiffany & Co.
You can find these gifts and more at your local Target store or on http://www.target.com starting this Sat., Dec. 1. Make your holidays a little more fashionable, funky, and fun with these amazing limited edition gifts! See ALL of the products, designers, exclusive videos and more here!
