Why did Target put so much effort into promoting their McQ Alexander McQueen collection, and not their line with jewelry designer Erickson Beamon? LibertyLondonGirl: "I only discovered that it was on sale by chance when I was flicking through the Design for All section of the Target website. Bizarre. It's not as if they weren't intending to promote it: I went to the press preview back in October." Anyway, it's out and looks rather nice. [LibertyLondonGirl]
