Proenza Schouler for Target sort of did it for me. Unfortunately, Behnaz Sarafpour didn’t. Back in June, the fashion blogs and media companies were already talking up the upcoming Alice Temperley and Erin Fetherston editions and I was waiting with bated breath.
Although the ideas were nice on paper, and some of the pieces were cute, Victorian and wearable, I wasn’t so enamored with the Temperley for Target line. A few floral dresses, some ruffles, velvet, and little too much off white made the collection look a little more cheap than chic.
The fashion blogs and media companies have been talking up the Fetherston line since June. Here’s hoping the dramatic designer with the blunt bangs and platinum blonde hair will impress on November 18.
No, I haven’t seen the pieces in person–but so far so good–if you’re into that whole colorful cartoon character look. Frothy, youthful, and whimsical, the collection features lots of empire-waist dresses, Peter Pan collars, satin trim, short hems and a heart theme running throughout.
We’re itching to see what’s been done–and we’re hoping even the more mature crowd can pull at least some of the pieces off–the key is finding the separates in the blazers and blouses–even if you don’t wear the purple and white chiffon tiered dress to their next big event!
