Target’s Next Designers, Tiffany’s Mint Julep & Preppy Sales

Hello-Hello and Happy April 15th!  Quite.

There is simply too much going on here at Princess Intergalactic HQ for a proper post, so we shall share a few bits and bytes we hope hold some appeal for our treasured readers.

First, news of Target’s next design partnerships; Gaby Basora will be doing a group for the retailer’s GO International collection.  Ms. Basora is best known for her Tucker collection, a brand previously mentioned in this space.  Below we show the Pink Wavy Princess Dress (L) and Tulip Bottom Skirt with shirred waist (R), both from the Tucker line.

Ms. Basora’s collection will be available beginning September 10.

WWD also has word on the next jewelry partnership at Targét, it is with Temple St. Clair.  Below, two examples of Ms. St. Clair’s current work (not the Target collection).

This collection launches at most Target stores and online August 29.  We are excited to see both groups.

Speaking of jewels, we must congratulate our friend Miss Wendy, her earrings will soon be seen in the upcoming Sex and the City 2 movie!

Here is a better look:

Congratulations to Miss Wendy! The film premieres May 27.

In other fashion collaboration news, WWD reports that J. Crew is doing a denim line for men:

“The retailer has collaborated with Japanese selvedge denim label Warehouse on an exclusive men’s style that will sell for $300 on its Web site, and at its Men’s Shop and Liquor Store locations….”

Crew is also continuing its recently introduced partnership with Levi’s.

So much for that hypothetical end to conspicuous consumption, behold the “world’s most expensive Mint Julep”:

Tiffany has partnered with Woodford (the bourbon folks) to create a mere 73 cups like the one seen above. Jared Paul Stern at Luxist has more:

“Only 73 of the sterling silver cups will be available at $1,000 apiece; purchasers will be served a julep in the cup at Churchill Downs on Derby Day, May 1st. Proceeds from the cups will benefit The Barnstable Brown Kentucky Diabetes & Obesity Center.”

In our post yesterday we nattered on about wedding gowns and Bridal Fashion Week. We close today with images from another fashion show held this week:

Above we see Schultzy, a West Highland terrier, modeling his bridal best during the “Last Bark for Bryant Park” fashion show.  This was the second year for the show, put on by FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) students, consisting only of garments fashioned for the four-legged family member.

We’re thinking we may need to share more from this show in tomorrow’s post….oui?

Until then, may everyone’s day be pink, green and beautiful!

  2. I really want that silly julep cup! I doubt that will be added to Miss Piper’s collection, however, ha ha! And I’m really excited for the new Target lines. I think they’ll both be great. PS…congrats to your friend on her earrings being in the new SATC movie – how exciting for her!

  3. Well, I wanted 75 matching cups so I guess I’m going to have to pass. 😉

    I have a question for you on Target designer duds so I think I will email you for your opinion. 🙂
