The rumors were true: Designer Alexander McQueen will collaborate with Target. The line will launch in March under a "new fashion initiative called Designer Collaborations." More, from WWD: "The program will bring the styles of well-established designers to the mass merchant at typical Target prices. Alexander McQueen is the first on deck and will design a version of his McQ collection called McQ Alexander McQueen for Target. The collection will have rock 'n' roll influences and edgy details such as studs and tattoo-print fabrics. Designer Initiative is a separate program from Target's Go International, which focuses on young or emerging designers. Target said additional Designer Collaborations will be announced in the future." [WWD, subscription req; Previously]
