Sneak peak at Jason Wu for Target

On Tuesday, T Magazine released a sneak peak at a Jason Wu for Target Poplin dress and satchel. The pieces will cost $40 and $50 respectively, and although the bag looks plastic and the dress is created en-masse, they both look close-to-perfection.

This post is completely unrelated to the drama that went down in Iowa overnight, but we would like to highlight news involving a fashion favorite within political circles. Jason Wu is the First Lady's go-to designer, and women everywhere are anticipating the opportunity to mimic her style.

In October, Target announced that its next designer collaboration was Jason Wu for Target, and on Tuesday, T Magazine revealed two pieces from the line: A poplin dress and satchel, with the pieces priced at $40 and $50, respectively.

Lucky Magazine then released a first look at the Jason Wu for Target print ad campaign, and although the bags are probably plastic and the dresses are created en-masse, everything we've seen so far looks close to perfection.

Wu explained to WWD, "The exciting thing about this limited edition collection of affordable women’s wear and accessories is that it allows me to reach a wider audience and bring my designs to people who may not have been able to purchase them before."

On his actual designs, Wu told T Magazine, “I designed completely new clothes and accessories that reflect my taste and have a voice of their own." His line has been dubbed by the publication as "gamine chic." Think Audrey Hepburn, tennis skirts, ballet flats, sailor-striped hemlines, ruffled trenches, and more.

The limited edition collection debuts at Target stores nationwide on February 5, so get your credit cards and calves ready, ladies. It's going to be a mad-scramble at the mega retailer once it's released.
