From Piggy to Prints, Major Designer Collaborations
What do Angela Missoni, Donatella Versace and Miss Piggy all have in common? Besides bold looks, these three are all involved in major designer collaborations. (Yes, Miss Piggy is a designer.) Nowadays fresh collaborations are announced practically every day, so we’re left asking ourselves… “Is this even news?” While, yes, many partnerships are exciting and garner mountains of press and make great additional to our wardrobe, others are well…less interesting to say the least. New collaborations, capsule collections, and guest design stints are constantly in circulation, so it’s easy to get lost in the jumble. Therefore, MyFDB wanted to break down some of the most noteworthy collections that you may (or may not) want to add to your closet.
Up first is the highly anticipated Missoni for Target line. Mark your calendars now for September 13th, because you don’t want to be last one on the block without a Missoni bike, towels, dress, or patio furniture. The brand wants to invade our lives and we’re totally okay with it.
Next, Muppet diva Miss Piggy is teaming up with Opening Ceremony for a unique collection. The line will debut during Fashion’s Night Out, but the pieces are still a secret. We hear Miss Piggy herself will be in arriving to show off the looks. No word on the attendance of Kermit or any other members of the Muppet gang as of yet. We’ll keep you posted on how this plays out.
Then Versace is getting into bed with H&M – literally. The retailer will be selling branded Versace bedding along with an array of designs from Donatella this fall. We think the line will sell well, but we’re just not completely sold on if we’d purchase it ourselves.
So, who’s ready for some retail therapy?
