It may seem like dejá vu, but pinch yourself because it’s true – Target just announced the next Go International designer will be none other than Zac Posen, who has dressed stars such as Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez.
The collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from April 25 through May 30. Posen will be following in the Go International alum footsteps of Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Tracy Feith, and the upcoming Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte.
Yet there is still no word on the price points of the upcoming Zac Posen collection; however previous Go collections have been in the $14.99 to $149.99 range. Posen’s own collection is priced from $900 to $12,000, with custom pieces fetching upward of $20,000. This isn’t Posen’s first foray into lower price points as he prepares for the launch of Z Spoke, a less expensive line exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue, this upcoming spring. Z Spoke will retail from $78 for a cotton T-shirt to $675 for a knit dress.
But lest we forget about Zac Posen’s first go-around with Target Australia in Fall 2008? Monsieur Posen dreamt up a collection of red-carpet gowns, short dresses and tailored pants for Target Down Under. Target America; however, after all the legal mumbo-jumbo says there is no likeness with both companies nor the collections.
Above is a flashback from the swanky soiree with Zac Posen, after his fabulous show at the Vanderbilt Mansion on Fisher Island. Below is a reminder of what Zac Posen designed for Target Australia Go International:
