My love/hate relationship with Target designer collaborations is cycling up with today’s announcement — way up.

Target and upscale department store Neiman Marcus are partnering on an innovative program that will bring together 24 designers (all members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America) to create a limited-edition holiday collection, to be sold in both chains (and online) starting Dec. 1.

Just a few of those participating: Altuzzara, Dian Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Alice + Olivia, Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone, Rodarte and Tory Burch.

While no look book images are available (come on!), the collection is said to range in price from $7.99 to $499.99, with most items coming in at less than $60. Social media is the place to be for a sneak peek — follow along at #holiday24.

The unprecedented collab between Target and Neiman Marcus has a deliciously philanthropic thread too (who doesn’t love chic, charitable shopping?): To celebrate the unprecedented partnership, Target and Neiman Marcus are donating a total of $1 million to the CFDA, underscoring the retailers’ long-standing commitment to fostering design talent.

“I can think of no better finale to CFDA’s 50th Anniversary celebration than through this extraordinary designer collaboration,” CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg said in a press release. “As designers, creativity is our best gift, and with the generous support of Neiman Marcus and Target, we are happy to have created specially designed products as a thank you to share with our consumers and friends.”
