Let’s do some of my favorite kind of numbers-crunching: fashion math.

24 CFDA designers + 50 holiday gifts + 1 amazing retail collaboration = #totesamaze for sure.

Target and Neiman Marcus revealed the items in their Holiday24 collection, which will hit Targets, NMs and both retailers online stores Dec. 1.

A few connected secret Charlotte retail sources tell me we can expect (fingers crossed!) none of the drama that has surrounded previous collab releases — from product availability, to on-line availability to in-store merchandising (hello Missioni for Target sprinkled piece-by-piece through the store).

The first pics of the collection were released this week, and I’m jazzed. Keep in mind this is a collection of gifts, so it will contain fewer items of clothing than previous collaborations, but it’s quite promising none the less.

Among my early-I-love-the-pics faves? Alice + Olivia rolling luggage (with four travel bags!); Joseph Altuzzara’s cocktail/entertaining accoutrements; Prabal Gurung’s cape; Band of Outsiders cookie cutters and the Proenza Schouler iPad case.

What’s your take on this latest collection? Yay or Nay?
