No matter how many companies jump aboard the pop-up shop bandwagon, that combo of a now-you-see-it-now-you-don't timeframe and offers of special, limited-edition merchandise gets us every time. So of course we were excited to hear that Target would be opening four pop-ups in the city next month to showcase some of their many designer collaborations. Thankfully, the retailer's just revealed a bit more about the endeavor on their website. The locations—57th Street at Sixth Avenue in Midtown, Broadway near 12th Street in Union Square, Broome Street between Wooster Street and West Broadway in Soho and Bowery at 2nd Street in the East Village—will offer up goods from twenty-two of Target's collabs, encompassing clothing, accessories, housewares, makeup and more. The list of designers includes Anya Hindmarch, John Derian, Dean Harris, Jonathan Saunders and Sigerson Morrison; the stores, open September 11th 'til the 14th, will all be shoppable from 10AM to 10PM.
