Dita Von Teese is the latest celebrity to collaborate with Target! The burlesque dancer has designed a line of vintage-inspired lingerie. The collection will only be available in Australia, so if you’re looking to get your hands on the pieces, you’ll have to hit Target.com.au or eBay!
For a woman who spends most of her career in lingerie, it comes as no surprise she’d design her own line. Wonder how her style will fit in at Target. Seems a bit strange to me, but maybe it’ll be pretty successful!
Not to mention: garters and corsets don’t translate to lower price points the way cotton briefs and sports bras might. Nipped silhouettes and lacy overlays rely on sound construction and high-quality fabrics—not even sort of Target’s strong points. The retailer’s boutique fashion lines do a good job of translating the vision and overall sensibility of designer items to mass-produced apparel, but even though the pieces seem pretty in the lookbooks and hanging on the Target racks, each one is a hop, skip, and jump away from becoming just another crumpled rag stuffed in the back of your drawers.
Dita Von Teese for Target is worth browsing at the store if you’re hanging out in Australia, but save your eBaying for another time. La Perla this is not.
