Jason Wu's Collection for Target is FINALLY HERE. After many months of waiting and anticipation, the collection finally launched this morning, both online and in store. The price ranges from $29.99 to $59.99, making this a designer collection everyone can afford.
If you are looking into buying something from Jason Wu's Collection for Target, we suggest you hurry as the items are going quick. If you browse through target online, you can clearly see a lot of his items are already marked 'out of stock'.
We are going to drop by Target this afternoon to check out the collection, and hopefully pick up a few stuff for ourselves. Tune in to see what we were able to grab in the midst of this collection launch and how we feel about the overall collection after seeing it in person.
**Update at 9:00pm: Click to read more about what we thought of the collection after seeing it in person.
So we dropped by Target earlier today and we have to say, we, both, were extremely disappointed. We were disappointed not only because we were too lazy to wake up at 7 in the morning to wait in line (what were we thinking???) but also because we didn't get the chance to see the collection! We did manage to find one piece but it wasn't even in either one of our sizes.
By mid-afternoon, the rack was cleared regardless of sizes, styles, or colors. At first we were fooled by all of the clothes hanging on the rack, only to find out it wasn't Jason Wu's Collection; they were just a bunch of other brands hanging under Jason Wu's name (picture below).
The one piece we found was a XL Jersey Dress in Red/Navy Stripes for $34.99. We didn't feel like this piece lived up to our expectation. The materiel felt plain and kind of cheap. The dress was also boxy and shapeless. To us, it did not feel like a higher end brand, even when we kept in mind that this collection was made for Target and made to be less expensive. However, we did like the tags. It gave the collection a nice touch with the black and white photograph of Jason Wu with a short description.
We definitely don't want to base our whole opinion solely on one piece, so we'll give this collection another chance when Target restock the collection. Hopefully, it will be sometime soon. Plus, we did not get the chance to try any of the outfits on so we can not comment on the fit and overall look.
