The Next Big Thing: Target + Neiman Marcus + 24 Designers

Get ready guys and gals, Target AND Neiman Marcus will be collaborating to bring together a holiday collection that will be available at both retailers, in-store and online. Of course, all items are limited edition. The collection drops on December 1st.

The collection will include items from 24(!) CFDA designers:

Alice + Olivia
Altuzarra
Band of Outsiders
Brian Atwood
Carolina Herrera
Derek Lam
Diane Von Furstenberg
Eddie Borgo
Jason Wu

Judith Leiber
Lela Rose
Marc Jacobs
Marchesa
Oscar de la Renta
Philip Crangi
Prabal Gurung
Proenza Schouler
Rag & Bone
Robert Rodriguez
Rodarte
Skaist-Taylor
Thom Browne
Tory Burch
Tracy Reese

The collection will consist of 50-plus items costing between $7.99 and $499.99, with prices averaging less than $60. Each designer will contribute 1-3 designs in a wide range of various categories from men’s, women’s, children’s clothing and accessories, sporting goods, home goods, and accessories for pets and electronics.

The Neiman Marcus-Target collaboration has been in the works since last December, and according to Kathee Tesija, Target’s executive vice president of merchandising, the collaboration was a breeze: “We really formed one team and approached this together, as a team … At times, it was hard to tell who was from the Target team and who was from Neiman Marcus. It was one big melding.”

Hopefully the crowds waiting for December 1st will be as nice to each other as this. Pfffft. Fat chance!
