Altuzarra for Target Launch Party - See the Clothes in Real Life!


Party pics from the Altuzarra for Target launch event in New York City

Yesterday evening, Target hosted a launch event for the highly anticipated collaboration with 2014's CFDA Womenswear Designer of the year, Joseph Altuzarra. The Altuzarra for Target collection features about fifty pieces, all priced between $17.99 and $89.99, and will be available exclusively at Target, in select stores and online, and at Net-A-Porter, on Sunday, September 14. The collection includes an array of dressier pieces, appropriate for work, play and formal events; pencil skirts, blouses, pants, sweaters, dresses, blazers and trench coats with embellished details, prints and rich texture. It also includes fabulous accessories like statement belts and shoes. These pieces can also be dressed down and easily incorporated into any wardrobe. Overall, the Altuzarra for Target collection absolutely rings true to Mr. Altuzarra's sultry and sophisticated design aesthetic, and at its price point, is sure to please, and certainly not one to be overlooked.

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a few of my favorites from the collection; the black sweater with gorgeous gold crane appliques at the shoulders, the printed orchid sweatshirt, the simple snake print tee and the classic cropped black tuxedo pants. Which pieces are your favorites?

when news of this collab first broke , i was excited , but come to find out , they didn't make any of the garments available in plus sizes .

such a bummer because i would've liked to treat myself since it releases exactly a week before my birthday .


my fave pieces are the red draped dress with the attached scarf & the snakeprint trench coat .

You're not alone, luckily, Target supposedly has plans to launch new plus size offerings soon. It's not Altuzarra but it's a step in the right direction:

Thanks for sharing, Budget Babe. How did you find the trousers fit? Did you take your normal size?

The fit is true to size!
