Slaves to Fashion blogger Ashley Baker just posted a video wherein Cindy Greene, one of the designers of Libertine, puts an outfit together for Glamour magazine from Libertine's awfully bright collection for Target. We had seen pictures of the collection, which hits stores in July, on Target's website, but these styles weren't included in the image album. Is it an improvement over the mediocre Patrick Robinson stuff? Possibly. We're not sure how we feel about those Kelly-green eyelet shorts, though the red jacket and the straw bag (not pictured at right but featured in the video clip) are both nice. Definitely not for shy types, though. UPDATE: There's a reason why we hadn't seen the shorts or the jacket before—only the blouse is Libertine for Target! Too bad.
