Jason Wu for Target: Handbags and Scarves

As promised, here are all the Jason Wu for Target accessories from the just-released lookbook. Yes, some of the hardware say "Jason Wu for Target" but it's done in a discreet and tasteful manner. No, there's no genuine leather. Wu told it's not about "replicating more expensive materials." Instead of using faux leather for the handbags, for example, he used raffia or canvas. "The focus isn't just getting Jason Wu at a lower price point," he says. "It was about creating an entirely new collection that I think my regular customers will enjoy, too." Available Feb. 5, the collection blends sophistication with a mischievous nod to the 1960s (cue Milo the cat), and ranges in price from $19.99 to $49.99 for handbags and scarves. I'll have to wait to see these in person but I wish Wu had just used faux leather rather than fabric and raffia which is often too lightweight, fragile and difficult to keep clean. But I do love the shapes of these bags, classic and chic!

The black cat tote and scarf are too die for! What a lovely collection!

I'm in love with the cat print and the blue floral! I hope I can snag a piece. I actually prefer these materials to faux leather. The last faux leather item I had bubbled, stretched, peeled and ended up looking awful.

Eek, can't help but ponder how quickly all that cream canvas would get dirty. Absolutely love the cat scarf though!

I love the first bag (the one with the cat)! If the price is right then I'd love to purchase one.
