Lets 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 Im jazzed. Keep in mind this is a collection of gifts, so it will contain fewer items of clothing than previous collaborations, but its quite promising none the less.Among my early-I-love-the-pics faves? Alice + Olivia rolling luggage (with four travel bags!); Joseph Altuzzaras cocktail/entertaining accoutrements; Prabal Gurungs cape; Band of Outsiders cookie cutters and the Proenza Schouler iPad case.Whats your take on this latest collection? Yay or Nay?
