Target x Neiman Marcus Lookbook Released: Underwhelming

The Target x Neiman Marcus lookbook was released earlier this week and I have to say that I was disappointed. There was very little in the way of women's apparel, only a couple of looks from Lela Rose, Robert Rodriguez and Thom Browne. The collection was dominated by random (useless) novelty items like a DVF yoga mat, or Derek Lam skateboard, or Rodarte wrapping paper. Plus, the items aren't cheap either! I wouldn't pay $49.99 for a yoga mat (that isn't say, Manduka) or $100 for a skateboard. I was really looking forward to what Marc Jacobs or even Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta would do, hoping for some clothes, but instead, all Marc Jacobs did was an (expensive) scarf and metallic pouches (both $70, total cop-out) and Oscar de la Renta did a $39.99 pink dog collar and leash and dog bowl. My dogs are both male so no use there. The only thing I might even consider buying are the Marchesa girls dresses for little K, depending on the quality. Still, they better be pretty darn amazing for $100. Full lookbook here.
