The 24 Designers of Christmas

11/30/2012

UPDATE: The Target & Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection is now on sale both online and in stores. Did you get anything? I used @TargetStyle last night to check when the items went on sale. Everything went live around 10:30 PM PST, and I was able to get the three main pieces I wanted:
The collaboration comes to us from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, or CFDA, which is a non-profit organization that furthers the recognition of U.S. fashion designers. With it being the 50th anniversary of the CFDA, what better way to celebrate than to offer 50 different holiday gifts from 24 notable fashion designers between 2 great stores.

THE DESIGNERS♥ Alice + Olivia ♥ Altuzarra ♥ Band of Outsiders ♥ Brian Atwood ♥ Carolina Herrera ♥ Derek Lam ♥ DVF ♥ Eddie Borgo ♥ Jason Wu ♥ Judith Leiber ♥ Lela Rose ♥ Marc Jacobs ♥ Marchesa ♥ Oscar de la Renta ♥ Philip Crangi ♥ Prabal Gurung ♥ Proenza Schouler ♥ Rag & Bone ♥ Robert Rodriguez ♥ Rodarte ♥ Skaist-Taylor ♥ Thom Browne ♥ Tory Burch ♥ Tracy Reese ♥

I'm so happy about the list of designers in this collab. My only qualm is that the Marchesa ladies only designed dresses for little girls...little dresses that I could never fit in no matter how much I tried.

THE GIFTSThe most expensive item is the $500 bike and some of the least expensive pieces are the $20 Carolina Herrera stationary set and the $8 Rag & Bone wrapping paper. Some of my favorite gifts that will probably sell fast:

Alice + Olivia bike ~ Brian Atwood sunglasses ~ Lela Rose guipure lace top
Oscar de la Renta tote ~ Prabal Gurung cape ~ Rag & bone shot glasses ~ Robert Rodriguez top and dress ~ Rodarte wrapping paper
Isn't it great that there are so many options--from clothing to home goods--from so many different design styles? And you can choose to shop at Neiman Marcus, Target or either store online.

Please tell me that you'll be doing some holiday shopping from one of these 24 designers this weekend?

P.S. Head on over to the Neiman website for a chance to win the ENTIRE collection! That's $5,000 worth of 51 items that work for you, for him, for little ones, for pup-stars and for the home.

  7. I'll definitely have to trek to Target early. I have a feeling this will be like the Nate Berkus (sp) fiasco where everything was gone in 24hrs lOl.

  16. I went...I saw...and I didn't buy anything. About the only thing I liked was the embroidered lace lela rose top which the XS was waaaaay too big and the altuzarra glasses, which I didn't think I needed to spend $50 on a set of 4. You should have seen the faces on the NM associates since the line was available at the high end dept store that day. I overheard 1 associate say to another in a very annoyed tone of voice, "can this day just be OVER?" rolling his eyes.
