One of the perks of my job as a magazine fashion director was being able to preview collections a season in ahead. Which meant I was armed with my must-have lists well in advance of things hitting the stores. Such was the case with Target’s genius designer collaborations. These collections—that deliver haute design to a whole new audience— are so coveted, they sell out in store and on-line in what seems like an instant. (I still mourn missing out on a Zac Posen for Target jacket from this past Spring) So I’m telling you now to mark your calenders for the launch of the that the latest collaboration: Temple St. Clair For Target.
Founded in 1986 by the designer of the same name, Temple St. Claire is a line of exquisite hand crafted jewelry. Her limited-edition collection for Target features a range of pieces—made from materials such as 14k gold plated brass and cubic zirconium—that embodies modern style at an affordable price. (This stunning gold necklace with yellow pear drop stones at left retails for only $49.99 and the Gold Vine Earrings, $29.99)
This gem of a collection hits Target stores and target.com August 29th, and will be available through December 28th—if it lasts that long. See some of my favorites from the collection after the jump.
Gold Wide-Band Ring in Blue/Green $29.99
