If it seems that there is always a new designer and mass market retailer collaboration, that’s because there is. I for one am always so excited to hear about a new one. There are a couple that will be landing in stores soon that will not disappoint. So get you’re your wallets ready!
Kirna Zabete for the Shops at Target
Hitting stores first is Kirna Zabete for Target—part of their Shops at Target campaign, which brings the small specialty boutique feel to Target. The collection will be in stores and online starting September 9th. Kirna Zabete is a Soho boutique which carries a wide array of high end designers, from Balenciaga, Celine and Lanvin, to Rick Owens and Proenza Schouler. The owners Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini (Sarah’s nickname is Kirna, and Beth’s nickname is Zabete, which is where the boutique got its name) wanted to create a retail concept to launch the best fashion designers of today and tomorrow. They select every item that they carry in their store, so you can be sure that the same attention was given to every detail in their Target Collection. Easley and Buccini’s inspiration is to bring downtown cool to America, and Target is definitely the platform to do it. Even if you can’t get to New York, Target brings a little bit of it to you with Kirna and Zabete.
There are great separates to mix and match, lots of color and amazing prints. Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t wear bright, fun colors. I am loving the faux leather skirt and the leopard print trench, which only costs $59.99! The collection includes adorable clutches and even jewelry. This collection is one not to be missed! If you can’t get to Target, set your alarm so you can get online and get ordering!

Nicole Richie For Impulse at Macy’s
Another exciting collaboration is Nicole Richie’s collection for Macy’s. Her 25 piece collection arrives September 12th in Macy’s stores and online. Everything will retail between $49.99 and 149.99!
This collection exemplifies the boho-chic style that Richie is known for and is evident in her Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 lines. This capsule collection is inspired by the 60’s and 70’s when there were no set-in-stone fashion rules. There are a lot of jewel tone colors for fall and a lot of mixed prints. One print that I absolutely love is the kaleidoscope peacock print, which is so unique. Richie not only mixes prints but also different kinds of fabrics, there is everything from faux fur and leather to chiffon and lace.
This collection has a little something for everyone. There are flowy, printed dresses and skirts, but also more structured jackets and even studded jackets and pants. Combining the different pieces in this line is effortless way to combine the soft and feminine with a little harder, rocker edge.
With these collection showing up on stores soon, it’s the perfect time to update your look for fall. And with these prices–there’s no excuse not to!

Jennifer Milton recently traded the Windy City for the Mile High City. In Chicago she specialized in high-end designer consignment, and believes there is nothing like scoring that designer item for a fraction of the price! Besides her husband and dog, her favorite things are fashion, great food and travel. And even though Denver is now home, she will always be a Bears fan! (Sorry Broncos fans.)
