Target + Neiman Marcus & 24 CFDA Designers, Slated for Holiday 2012

Reflecting on the days when my holiday shopping consisted of my Aunt taking me and my grandmother to Neimans, back when the line between the finer things in life and the more attainable goods was well defined and the two couldn’t easily be confused. As fashion and luxury became, how do you say–democratized, so have we. Our taste levels have changed and the realization that the blurred lines of luxury are comprised of less of a price tag and more of a feeling have shifted our idea of cache.

Target is well-known for their elaborate and affordable diffusions and we have been made aware of a multi-designer matching that’s more than unprecedented. Neimans and Target have coupled up to launch 50 limited-edition gifting items created by 24 well-known CFDA designers in the emergent space. The partnership includes a $1 million donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

Kudos to Target for this one…for we never thought Neiman Marcus would bow down.

“Target and Neiman Marcus are known for charting new terrain, and by joining forces for the holiday season, we’ve set the stage for a redefining moment in retail,” said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Target. “This collaboration is unlike anything Target has done before and we are confident our guests will be thrilled with this extraordinary collection that features some of America’s most preeminent designers.”

“Neiman Marcus and Target share a passion for great design and delighting customers in new and unexpected ways, said Karen Katz, president and chief executive officer, The Neiman Marcus Group. “We are thrilled to be collaborating to offer a spectacular and special collection of one-of-a-kind items for the holidays. These will be the “must have” gifts – whether you are a loyal Neiman Marcus customer, a devoted Target guest or a fan of American design.”

Rumor has it, the Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection will include a diverse mix of limited-edition eclectic gifting products that range $7.99 to $499.99, with most items less than $60. See below for designers who created pieces for the collection:

· Alice + Olivia
· Altuzarra
· Band of Outsiders
· Brian Atwood
· Carolina Herrera
· Derek Lam
· Diane von Furstenberg
· Eddie Borgo

“I can think of no better finale to CFDA’s 50th Anniversary celebration than through this extraordinary designer collaboration,” said CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg. “As designers, creativity is our best gift, and with the generous support of Neiman Marcus and Target, we are happy to have created specially designed products as a thank you to share with our consumers and friends.”
