Felix Rey and Miss Trish of Capri for Target




Target has two more designer collaborations on the horizon for accessories: Lily Band and Sulaika Zarrouk will design a limited edition handbag collection called Felix Rey for the retailer that will be available from March 29 through June 14. Then, footwear designer Trish Carroll is creating a limited edition shoe collection called Miss Trish of Capri for Target, which will be available from April 5 through June 14.

I'm kinda indifferent towards both designers, but they might translate well to fast fashion because...how can I put this...even their pricey designer stuff looks kinda cheap. Felix Rey does bows, sequins, patent leather, leopard. Meanwhile, Miss Trish of Capri creates costly thong sandals for Palm Beach housewives adorned with shiny trinkets shaped like seahorses or jewel-encrusted starfish. So who knows, both collabs could be cute at Target where the pricetags will happily match the designs.

I'll be looking forward to seeing what Miss Trish of Capri has in store for her Target line. I'm thinking her sandals would be the perfect budget-friendly footwear to pair with a Lilly dress and a great tan!

I purchased a pair this morning. Excellent bargain- I want to keep Target bringing us interesting items. Had to have the silver flats - very HIGH style

I can definitely see what you mean about these translating well to fast fashion.

I really, really wish we had a Target up in Canada. I heart it so!
