    Default Zac Posen to Design for Target Go International Collection

    This is interesting. Not only is Zac Posen launching a secondary Z spoke line, but he's also in the early stages of designing a collection for Target!

    The news via WWD:
    Zac Posen, who has dressed stars such as Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez, will be the next limited edition designer of Targetís Go International series.

    Posenís Go International collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from April 25 through May 30.

    Go International, which focuses on young or emerging designers, has, since 2007, featured Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon and Tracy Feith. Next month, Target will introduce Rodarte, the collection designed by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

    Target did not disclose prices for Posenís collection, but previous Go collections have been in the $14.99 to $149.99 range. Posenís own collection is priced from $900 to $12,000, with custom pieces fetching upward of $20,000.

    Posen, 29, is no stranger to adapting his luxurious designs to lower price points. In the spring, he is launching Z Spoke, a less expensive line exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue. Z Spoke will retail from $78 for a cotton T-shirt to $675 for a knit dress.

    Go is not to be confused with Targetís Designer Collaborations, a separate program that features established designers who draw inspiration from a collaborative partner, muse or creative element. Alexander McQueen was the inaugural Designer Collaboration in March. Anna Sui bowed in September.

    Posen, who has a flair for dramatic designs and drama in general, made a cameo appearance on ďThe Beautiful Life,Ē which began airing in July on the CW network. He attended Central St. Martinís College of Art and Design in London, which has turned out talents such as McQueen and Stella McCartney.

    Posen has had some experience designing for Target, albeit Target Australia. In fall 2008, he created a collection of red-carpet gowns, short dresses and tailored pants for Target Down Under. Rights to the Target logo and name were granted to Myer Emporium Ltd., now Coles Group, by Dayton Hudson Corp., now known as Target Corp. Aside from this, the two companies are unrelated.

    I love Zac Posen bags, but not a fan of his clothing. I went to the release of his clothing line for Target in Australia a couple of years ago, and was not very impressed by it.
    He has certainly achieved a lot, especially for a 29 yr old. I didn't know he was so young.

    I kinda think this is odd. It sounds like his line isn't doing too well, if he's had to create 2 lower end lines within the last 6 months.
