Zac Posen for Target (or, a Holiday Miracle)

After gushing incessantly about Rodarte for Target, the mega-chain has given me another reason to swoon: Zac Posen is slated to design a collection for Target's Go International series. According to WWD, the collection will be available April 25 till May 30, 2010, both in-store and online.

Just recently, Posen unveiled his Z Spoke line at Saks, a "budget-friendly" collection, starting with t-shirts retailing at $78. As The Cut points out, the Target line may further spike the rumors that the label is suffering financially.

Regardless, I'm stoked. I fell quite blissfully in love with the designer in college, when I was fortunate enough to snag a last-minute ticket to the Zac Posen Spring 2008 RTW show during Fashion Week (who knew interning could have such exquisite perks?). Although that particular collection was heavily criticized, Posen's creations, and the runway show, reflected the designer's knack for totally transforming the viewer's experience into a fantastical dream.

Not a lot has been revealed about the Target collection, i.e. price point or design influences, but I'm sure something will leak online sooner or later. I'll keep you posted.
