Designers High-Street Collaborations Roster

WHOA. Once started, these designers high-street collaborations just keep coming! Some are a dime and a dozen, and some are definitely worth mentioning. Look out for more updates from this blog!

H&M: Announced yesterday that the Swedish clothing retailer will collaborate with Roberto Cavalli for a one-off collection this Fall. Stayed tuned for preview pictures. But for now, we know that the collection will be launched on Nov. 8.

Target: The Minneapolis retailer always get it right. Come July 15, clothing designer Libertine will launch its one-off collection under the GO International project. Also on the same day, CFDA-nominated accessory designer Devi Kroell will debut her affordably-priced handbags designed especially for Target. Kroell's pieces will feature faux-leather hobos, evening clutches and pouchettes in this season's metallic colors.

For Fall, British designer Alice Temperley (known for her ultra feminine silk gowns and delicate embroidery) will design for GO International. The pieces are mostly black and grey with excellent sweater-style dresses and flowing LBD.

At the accessories front, Holly Dunlap, of ballet-slippers Hollywould fame, will also design an accessories collection for Target. Rumor has it that the collection will debut sometime in Oct.

There's also rumors that Erin Fetherston will design for GO International for this upcoming winter holiday season.

Kohl's: Hold on to your hats ladies. Vera Wang will introduce an affordable line this Fall at Kohl's called Very Vera by Vera Wang. Stay tuned for its preview.

Payless Shoe Source: After three successful collaborations with Abaete's Laura Poretzky, the affordable shoe retailer will pair up with New York-based designer Lela Rose for a shoe/handbag collection starting this Fall. No word yet on whether this collaboration will be one-off or continuous.

So many collections, too little time to wear them all!
