McQ Alexander McQueen for Target

So most of us didn't expect much for the McQ line for Target because the first looks we saw back in November were kind of blah to put it nicely. It didn't get anyone excited. Well, brace yourself. I was lucky to get my hands on the lookbook a bit early (thanks Leila!) and I've made a few picks for you guys. Overall, I'm more impressed than I expected and stoked he did a bikini! Considering it's a diffusion line of a diffusion line, it didn't turn out so bad. In fact, I see more things I want than most of the other Target collections thus far, but that could be due largely in fact to the prominence of a certain color. Most pieces are priced $30-$50 so they will have no problem getting rid of this stuff come March, but I don't see many folks going to a bargain superstore to spend $130 on a piece of clothing (the leather vest).

It's actually a lot better than I expected from the original images. Where are those horrible tee shirts?

so, the real question is....are we camping out at target soon? I usually dont que up for any of these target collabos, i just trust in fate and hope when im randomly online or in a wierd suburb that something will be hanging on the rack. But this is different- this is McQueen....

yeah there were several looks that had ugly screen-printed cheapy looking tees that i didn't post. these are just my faves out of the whole lookbook. danae-i'd feel silly lining up at a target but i bet if we went the first day to one we'd get some stuff.

These are actually pretty sick! Target has kind of let me down on most of their designer collections, so we'll see...

Great blog!
