Designer Collaborations: Fall 2012

1. Kirna Zabete for Target 

Located in SoHo, Kirna Zabete is one of the hottest designer boutiques known for carrying top-of-the-line labels such as Lanvin, Alexander Wang, Rachel Zoe, Thakoon, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and more. The 100-piece collection will be released in stores and online Sunday, September 9, 2012.

What's Gucci my nigga?
What's Louie my killa?
What's drugs my deala?
What's that jacket, Margiela?

Does that lyric sound familiar? It's from Jay Z and Kanye West's single from last year, "Niggas in Paris."

Gucci and Louis Vuitton are frequently name-dropped designer brands in rap songs, but not so much Margiela. Regardless of this fact, Maison Martin Margiela is just as chic, modern, and influential in the fashion world. The Belgian designer's collection for H&M will be released Thursday, September 15, 2012.

When I found this article, I was floored, similar to my reaction when Max Azria collaborated with Walmart (we will ignore the fact that Miley Cyrus was the face of the collection). My style icon, Jessica Alba, has been seen wearing Narsico Rodriguez for events, so I will definitely be checking out this collection when it comes out in November or December.

I love Project Runway winner Christian Siriano.

Siriano's collaboration with Payless has been around for a few years. Although it is nothing new, it is nice to know that you can still "be fierce" on a budget without fighting fiercely over a pair of designer's shoes at a sale as seen in Confessions of a Shopaholic:

Later, there are plenty of more collaborations that will be available for the holiday season. Refinery 29 reports Neiman Marcus will have a collection at Target, as well as 24 CFDA designers.

If these collaborations have not inspired you to go fall shopping, the September issues are out-- Lady Gaga graces the September issue of Vogue.

Good luck shopping for fall!
