Target Announces Jason Wu Apparel and Handbag Collection


After tantalizing followers with a series of clues, Target announced via Twitter that it's next designer collaboration will be with CFDA winner Jason Wu. The limited-edition collection of affordably priced womenswear and handbags will launch in early 2012 - February 5th, to be exact. It's unlikely the Jason Wu for Target launch will create much of a stir, and that's precisely why I'm looking forward to picking up some whimsical Wu pieces at my leisure. Prove me wrong, eBayers.

Update: Keep reading for a sneak peek sketch to get your first look at the Jason Wu for Target collab!
Harper's Bazaar gives us our first look at the Jason Wu collection. "My collection for Target embodies my signature aesthetic of feminine sophistication, with a mischievous nod to the 1960s," says Wu. "I've had an incredible experience partnering with Target and I am looking forward to bringing these affordable designs to women across the country."

I am excited for this collection. I enjoy the look of his cloths and I think it will be more wearable than the Missoni collection.

Ooh, I can't wait! I love his designs, and I'm always happy to support the work of a fellow Taiwanese-American :-)
