Sneak Peek: 24 Looks From the Upcoming Altuzarra for Target Collaboration

To say I’m excited about the newest Target collaboration — Altuzarra for Target — would be an understatement. Like many women, I’m all about inexpensive designer goods, especially when they’re readily available both online and at a store with 5 miles of my home. This particular collection, however, has me more excited than the other collabs we’ve seen at the popular retail store. Why, you ask? I’ll tell you.

This one leans far more “sophisticated, but sexy woman” than the others do. In fact, the other collections seemed to focus on more of a 20-something demographic, perhaps even younger in some cases. That is most certainly not the case here, though.

True to Altuzarra form, this is a very sultry collection that dances on the line between alluring and professional. Think trendy business woman with a lot of sex appeal.

The Altuzarra for Target will include nearly 50 items that include women’s apparel, accessories and shoes. Prices for apparel range from $17.99 to $89.99, and $29.99 to $79.99 for accessories.

We’ve got the sneak peak for you today and we will definitely cover the collection when it launches on September 14. For now, enjoy photographs from the look book.

The Peter Pilotto for Target collection was being called one of the year’s most anticipated collaborations. While flipping through the look books before Target launched the collection, I could see why. It featured beautiful colors, interesting prints and a nice array of easy-to-style separates.

Despite all the hyped “anticipation,” when I showed up to my local Target in Phoenix, there was plenty left hanging on the racks and the aisles were eerily quiet. I did happen upon a few others scurrying through the goods, but I still took my time sipping a hot latte and checking everything out.

At one point I happened upon a mother-daughter duo who, when I gently moved their cart out of my way, kindly explained to me that the contents — about five Peter Pilotto pieces — were “like gold.” The mother went on to say that her other daughter, an NYC inhabitant, had relayed to her via text that all the NYC stores were already wiped out of the collection. Another shopper had her boyfriend carrying two Pilotto skirts while she held up other pieces to her body and contemplated them. In other words: the Peter Pilotto debut was, more or less, a serene scene in my neck of the woods.

Anyway, my first in-person impression of the actual collection was that the pieces all seemed very cohesive, cool and modern. This set of clothes is very much in line with everything else that’s happening for Spring 2014. In fact, if it weren’t for all of the big fancy signage around this display, it would’ve blended right in with Target’s other offerings. Lots of bright and splashy floral patterns paired with sharp geometric shapes and the occasional “surprise” element.

Another thing I noticed: the pieces were all extremely comfortable looking. Comfy spring fashion? Yes, please. I also appreciated that, unlike some of the other Target collaborations, the Peter Pilotto collection didn’t resort to super sheer fabrics that require lots of layering. Big props on that front.

So, after taking my time sorting through the display, I brought about 8 to 10 pieces with me to the dressing room. Below are some snapshots I took in addition to some of my initial impressions of the pieces.

Maison Martin Margiela H&M Collaboration

The Stylish City loves a good H&M collaboration. This time around, Maison Martin Margiela brings avant-garde to the floors of wallet friendly H&M, beginning Thursday, November 15th. If we’ve learned anything in the past, it’s that arriving early to H&M on the first day of a collaboration is an absolute necessity, if you want to be able to purchase the top styles in your size that is. Please note, the way it usually works in these cases is a certain number of wristbands are distributed well before H&M even opens. These will indicate what time you will be allowed to shop that day. So be prepared to line up early!

Theory Sample Sale

For diehard fans of the designer, there are two Theory sample sales taking place this week, beginning Thursday at 10AM. With cozy sweaters and ultra cute dresses, Theory may be your best bet in finding the ultimate Thanksgiving outfit that is flattering yet comfortable. Come Thursday, be sure to first drop by the true blue Theory Sample Sale, hosted by the brand at Privé located in the Chelsea Marketplace for deals up to 60% off their men and women’s collections. If you still haven’t had your Theory fill, take a trip uptown and visit clothingline on 36th Street, where they’ll offer Theory’s fall merchandise, including outerwear, knits, dresses, blazers, and more at a discount.

3.1 Phillip Lim Sample Sale

There’s nothing better than alleviating your shopping guilt by knowing your purchase is benefiting a good cause, close to home. A portion of the proceeds from Thusday’s 3.1 Phillip Lim Sample Sale will be donated to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. This sale is a definite Do Not Miss.

Alice & Trixie Warehouse Sale

To further benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts via shopping, head to SoHo on Thursday after the Phillip Lim sale where Alice & Trixie will host a warehouse sale with samples, stock, vintage, and one of a kind items, which will start at $10. 15% of sales from this event will be donated to the American Red Cross relief fund.

Bulgari Sample Sale

Early holiday shopping is in order on Saturday. Load up on goodies for your loved ones as Soiffer Haskin hosts the Bulgari Sample Sale, where jewelry, watches, handbags, accessories, and fragrances will be priced at an eye-popping discount.

After getting a jump on holiday shopping, donating to the Red Cross, and scoring a comfortable yet stunning outfit for Thanksgiving Day, I’d say this week was pretty much a success. Just don’t forget to wear your apron to protect that amazing new dress while fixing the turkey and all the trimmings next week!
