New York, NY, United States (AHN) – Target’s latest guest designer arrives just in time for the holidays. Starting Sunday, Oct. 10 all the way through Christmas Eve, handbags designed exclusively for Target by English luxury brand Mulberry will be available.
The Mulberry for Target collection features signature Mulberry silhouettes in bold prints, such as pink leopard print, and use different fabrics including denim, black velvet and patent. The collection includes different types of handbags, as well: totes, satchels, cross-body bags and mini messenger bags.
This collection arrives at Target just in time as the holiday season approaches.
Mulberry was founded in 1971 in Somerset, England, by Roger Saul and his mother. The mother-son designing duo quickly established Mulberry as a British lifestyle brand, starting with handbags, and quickly segueing into womenswear, menswear, women’s footwear and furniture.
The British lifestyle brand creates items inspired by heritage and craftsmanship, and is known for its high standards. Therefore, the fact that Mulberry-designed bags will be at Target is huge — women can buy handbags in different materials (patent, denim) but made with high-quality standards.
This is the first time Mulberry has collaborated with a less expensive retail store or chain. Collaborating with less expensive chains such as Target and H&M is still the hot thing to do, however; Lanvin is collaborating with H&M for an exclusive collection debuting in November and Valentino is reportedly designing a collection to be sold at the Gap.
