Kate Young x Target Lookbook
This time around Target's designer collaborations take a twist by partnering with a famed stylist instead. Kate Young who is considered by many to be one of the most influential celebrity stylists in the fashion industry will be introducing a limited-edition collection of women’s apparel and accessories, including handbags, shoes and jewelry.
Young began her career at Vogue magazine. After spending time assisting Anna Wintour and styling the first cover of Teen Vogue, she quickly transitioned into one of the most sought-after stylists in the fashion industry. Her clientele includes Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Connolly, Rachel Weisz and more. In addition to celebrity styling, Young consults for various labels and often styles runway shows for designers such as Jason Wu, Derek Lam, Nina Ricci, Peter Som, Yigal Azrouël and Vena Cava. No stranger to Target, Young styled a number of the brand’s campaigns, such as Jason Wu for Target, as well as Target’s well-remembered vertical fashion show in New York back in 2005. In 2012, Young topped The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the 25 most powerful stylists, recognizing her ingenuity and expertise in the fashion industry.
So what does that mean for us consumers? It means that we can snag red carpet worthy looks and sharp separates for a great price. This is $29.99 to $89.99 for apparel and $14.99 to $49.99 for jewelry, handbags and shoes. Kate Young for Target will be available April 14, 2013 at most Target stores and online at Target.com.
As for the designs they are a bit sweet, a bit glam and sexy all rolled into one. Sheer tops, layered with tuxedo blazers for a look that is all play! Sweet Peter Pan collar chiffon dresses make me think of Brooklyn hipster girls on a bike. Cocktail dresses with bow fronts have plenty of sass while maxi length dresses bring on the glamor.
There is a wide variety of dresses and looks for all occasions from the tuxedo romper to the pastel dress that would look great at a wedding, to the black and white dress that would look perfect at a formal function. I particularly like the polka dot number with the keyhole back! Kate Young did not forget the accessories with fun party ready clutches, statement shoes and sweet jewelry. While none of this is ground breaking, it is bound to make you look very put-together in a good way. What more could a girl ask for from a stylist extraordinaire?
