Those who know me will attest that I am rather partial to a print (I’d say love wouldn’t be too strong a word) and the more abstract and bold the print the harder I fall. From painterly patterns to African batik, I have always been a champion of colour and pattern. Therefore you can imagine how excited I am about the Peter Pilotto for Target collaboration, which launches exactly one week today. Designer garments at rock bottom prices are my kryptonite and what’s more, for the first time ever, this Target collection will be available beyond the US shores as Net-A-Porter is stocking an edited selection. And they have promised international delivery. Perfect!
US discount store Target has long been an advocate of designer collaborations, with a huge list of notable cut-price ranges dating back to the 90s – the likes of Mulberry, Philip Lim, Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs have all designed pieces for the store. Add to this Net-A-Porter’s international reach, and this month’s collection looks set to be their most successful yet.
Ever since its first on-schedule catwalk show at LFW back in 2009, Peter Pilotto has been the go-to label for punchy printed statement pieces, beloved by the likes of Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, Miranda Kerr and Kristen Stewart.

A firm favourite with fashionistas and bloggers alike, the Target collection will allow those with a more modest budget to sample a piece of the Pilotto pie.
Top £25, skirt £35, trainers £30
Tee £20, bikini bottoms £15, towel £25, trainers £30
Shirtdress £35, bikini top £23 and bottoms £17, trainers £30
Sunglasses £17, playsuit £55, trainers £30
As well as signature clashing-print fit-and-flare dresses, assymetric minis and neoprene tops, the 57-piece collection also includes swimwear, bags and some fabulous sunglasses. And all at purse-friendly prices. The only downside is that half the world will be purchasing these pieces online, so you may have some hefty competition. Best set the alarm early next Sunday and have your best trigger finger ready for some serious statement shopping.
