Rodarte for Target
Think Coco Chanel meets Urban Outfitters and you’ll have Rodarte, the latest Go International line for Target. Designing sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s 55-piece collection is heavy on sequins, bows, lace, and faux fur, making it dramatic enough for holiday dressing yet refined enough for day. Layer patterns and textures for a modern effect. Available through January 31 at most Target stores and at Target.com.
