One of Target's many successful collaborations was released back in February, by designer Prabal Gurung. Filled with vibrant prints and neons colours, the collection was ideal for the spring & summer season. In perfect accordance with seasons, the release of Phillip Lim's collection comes just in time for the Fall. Many of Target's collaborations have been targeted towards a younger audience in the past; but, this collection is a dream come true for the young (and older) professionals looking for some great buys to add to their casual or work-appropriate wardrobe.
The collection features some seriously killer accessories, trousers, tops, dresses, sweaters and tons of leather goodies, with nothing priced above $299.99. Only bad news is the collection doesn't hit stores until September 15th. But this just gives us more time to save up, duh. While there are tons of pieces to drool over, here are some of our favourites:

Lastly, here is some great back to school styling advice from Phillip Lim himself, as quoted from his interview with fashionista.com:
Q: Did you have a favorite piece? (in reference of his own back-to-school planning)
A: I was never about a piece actually, it was about the sum of the parts, it was about looks. In the 5th grade I was the New Romantics. I had suede slouched boots; I had a sweatshirt that had the Japanese Kamikaze sun that I got at Target actually and I cut the sleeves off. It was very '80s, with white pleated trousers. Fifth grade. I was super informed for some reason.
Isn't he just brilliant? Anyways, thanks for reading everyone. We've been pretty MIA with work/preparing to head back down to London (excuses, we know). Hopefully we have the chance to post more soon!
