Personally, we're pretty impressed with the collab, most notably because it includes a lot of regular Lim remakes—there's a graphic "Boom!" sweater (like the Ka-Pow pullover), and a version of the Pashli Satchel. Overall, it's definitely a collection for the Phillip Lim fan: there aren't any dramatic statement pieces that scream "Target collab!," but rather a good selection of merchandise that's very reminiscent of the main collection, just cheaper and in different fabrications.
Our national site posted the full lookbook, and we've put together our seven favorite pieces after the jump, including a sequined cocktail dress and the men's sneakers. While you're there, let us know in the poll whether it all looks worth lining up for on September 15th.
Update: Sadly, we've learned the white loafers aren't a part of the collection—they're actually a part of the main line, which is why they looked so familiar.
