Target's not the only big brand launching a designer collaboration during Fashion Week. This morning, Nicole Richie's line for Macy's Impulse hit stores around the nation, including Herald Square. The collection takes Richie's boho style and roughs it up a bit with biker accents—think peasant blouses and peacock prints, but also leather leggings and moto jackets. Pricing is very friendly, ranging from $49 to $149. (See the full look book on Racked National.)

If that's all a little too Stevie Nicks for you, just wait until Friday, when Topshop launches its J.W. Anderson collection. The up-and-coming Irish designer is known for his knitwear, and the line definitely features graphic sweaters, but it also includes varsity jackets and plenty of paisley in rich colors. Topshop plans to show off the collection in a space featuring quirky objects—Rubik's cubes, pencils, photo books—curated by Anderson.
Given how fast previous collabs have gone, you're going to want to turn up early for this. Before you go, check out the look book on Fashionista. Just try not to get distracted by the model's grungy hair, which apparently hasn't been washed since Kurt Cobain died.
