For those of you who also missed the sale today, Mulberry for Target will be in stores on October 10th. (You know that I will be at Target on this day.) Here is some information about the new line from Mulberry's website:
"We are partnering up with Target to launch a limited-edition handbag collection, Mulberry for Target. The collection will only be available in US Target stores and at Target.com from October 2010.
The range comprises of eight handbag styles and aims to evoke our brand spirit, rather than a compromise on quality. The key to the collection is authenticity communicating our brand character, personality and finally our brand philosophies. Using fabrics such as denim and velvet have allowed us to be playful and innovatinve, and at the same time remain true to our beliefs, whilst also maintaining an accessible price point.
Emma Hill, Mulberry's Creative Director says, 'We were thrilled to partner with Target on this special project! We love Target for its iconic, American status, for its sense of humour and for the fact that their corporate mascot and figurehead is a dog called Bullseye! And we especially respect and admire their commitment to philanthropy and to their vast charitable contributions, currently standing at $3M per week!'"When I heard about Mulberry for Target, I was hoping for cheaper versions of Mulberry's iconic bags, including the Alexa and Baywater. I am very happy with what Mulberry produced for their Target line. The bags have that classic Mulberry look to them, they look polished and have nice hardware, and they are being offered at great prices! If you are unable to get past that cutesy heart charm, it is removable, so don't worry!
Below are the styles available on Gilt.
Mini Crossbody $14.99
Large Satchel $49.99
This is the closet I'll come to Mulberry for a long time, so I am so overwhelmingly excited! I don't want to share this with my friends because I want to be the only one with this bag! Call me selfish, but sometimes fashion isn't fun when everyone else is wearing the same thing...
