I finally had the chance to check out the latest Target designer collaboration with legendary French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
For those who don’t know, Gaultier has outfitted Madonna, Marilyn Manson and Kylie Minogue to name a few. His collections can be found at higher end stores such as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, etc., priced from $500 – $1500++
His line for Target launched March 7th in more than 250 stores and online. The collection includes chic tops, skirts, dresses, outerwear and swimwear, including a very hot gold metallic monokini – which you could wear out with a cute skirt after a day at the pool/beach.
One Piece Monokini Swimsuit – Metallic Gold $34.99
Reports say the collection is selling well online but not in stores. I went to the Sandy Springs location (285 and Roswell Rd.) and there was a lot of inventory in store.
This is not my favorite Target collaboration, but the overall quality is good. I can’t afford items from his original collection so I grabbed a few things. Not exactly the same as his Neiman Marcus collection, but close enough.
Love this bikini top and bottom combo. $17.99 ea
The material is mesh and the print is reminiscent of Ed Hardy or Custo Barcelona.
This will be my go-to piece this summer. Works with jeans, pants, shorts, skirts.. it’s really low on the sides and back so you will have to wear a tank under it. $24.99 also in a tan/peach color.
Lingerie dress – I mentioned in an earlier post that I wouldn’t give in to the lingerie as outerwear trend, but will make an exception for this piece. It’s comfortable and adorable with tights, boots, booties, or flip flops. Plus, not as revealing as some of the lingerie styles I have seen - $34.99
The collection starts at $19.99 and goes as high as $200 for a leather jacket, which is beautiful but I passed on it.
Have you checked out the collection? What do you think? Does this line compare to the original?
