Peter Pilotto x Target Countdown + Your Pre-Launch Shopping Checklist!

Target's designer collaboration with Peter Pilotto is less than 72 hours from it's official launch date this Sunday, February 9th. The print-heavy 65 piece collection will be available online and in-stores at Target with Net-a-Porter also partnering with the brand to carry selected pieces of the collection that will be available to ship globally for the first time.

I'm looking forward to seeing everything in person and will hopefully be picking up a few pieces for my closet. While the excitement for this collection has been building, I'm not sure we will see the madness like we have with previous Target collaborations, simply because the bold prints and colors are not for everyone and the brand isn't as recognizable as Phillip Lim or Missoni to most people. If you are a person who is intimidated by a bold print, but still craving something from this collection, pick up a pair of sunnies or one of the cute tees to wear with your favorite pair of jeans, that's my plan anyway.

Will you be shopping the collection - what's on your must-have list?

  1. I liked that we both used the Peter Pilotto quote in each post! I'm excited, I don't understand why anyone wouldn't like a little print in the wardrobe. But then again I get excited for every collab. :P


    1. I noticed we used the same quote too - so funny! I agree, the hatred by some of the people for this collection is crazy I don't get it, it's not like you are suppose to wear everything at one time, geez (those are just marketing pics, duh.). Have fun with it I say and like you, I still get excited with every collab...way before I even had a blog :)
