Exclusive collection includes chic, affordable options for women and men
MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Just in time for the fall season, Target
today announced it is collaborating with esteemed designer Phillip Lim on an
exclusive collection for women and men. Available Sept. 15 at Target Canada
stores, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target features a range of apparel and
accessories, including bags and various travel pieces.
"Since an early age, I've been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,"
said Lim. "One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because
I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire - one
that is modern and chic, but still very accessible."
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target embodies Lim's philosophy that clothing is meant to
refine, not define. Rooted in a classic fall palette of neutral tones and
prints, the collection features more than 100 items and will be priced on par
with Target US stores.
"Continuing on Target's commitment to providing guests with high-quality
designer products at an exceptional value, we are pleased to announce the 3.1
Phillip Lim for Target collection will be available at Target stores in
Canada," said John Morioka, senior vice president, merchandising, Target
Canada. "The collection consists of beautifully tailored must-haves for both
women and men and will offer our guests a compelling reason to update their
wardrobes this fall."
