If you don't want to fight the crowds on Sunday July 15th for the Libertine for Target collection, here's an interesting report from no good for me: the collection is now in store at a Bronx Target (40 W 225th St between Broadway and Exterior St, Bronx; 718-733-7199). According to her post, the collection is slightly hit or miss, but "while I'd dismissed this as kind of juvenile (and there are definitely a lot of candy punk-prep adorable pieces if that's your thing), there are some nice, sophisticated, even luxurious pieces. The black crepe dress with cream crocheted collar border is well-cut and the material much better than the $39.99 price tag, and the creme silk bolero with black edging is also well-done." She also likes Libertine's accessories, especially an roomy overnight bag. Again, let this be a lesson in Target's store policies. We've learned from past experiences that even though the retailer might set a firm date for a collection to launch, stores don't always follow suit. Best bet is to call a location before you head over.
