Temple and Tucker Take Target
(NEW YORK) Zac Posen’s wares for Target are due to hit stores April 25 (impatient New Yorkers can drop by the designer’s 24 Hour Party and pop-up store, starting tonight at 11 at 481 Eighth Avenue), but already the mass retailer has more up its bargain-priced sleeve. Temple St. Clair has been named Target’s sixth-ever limited-edition jewelry collaborator, and Tucker by Gaby Basora will step in as the next GO! Intenational collaboration for the company.
Temple St. Clair Carr, the designer of the luxe jewelry label, founded her company in 1986 and has built a following with signature rock crystal amulets, which retail for up to $8,000. What Carr will do on a bargain budget remains to be seen (Gaby Basora’s silky tunics and frocks for Tucker seem a bit more translatable to mass production), and no images on either collaboration for Target will be available until later in the summer. Temple St. Clair for Target will hit most Target stores and Target.com August 29, where they will remain through December 26, 2010. Tucker by Gaby Basora will launch in stores on September 12 and will remain available through October 17, 2010.
