Designer Collaboration

Jason Wu x Target

A few look book images have been released, and a few area Target stores have confirmed that they’ll have the line on opening day, February 5.

Regular customers and bargain hunters alike can trek to the West Seattle, Southcenter, Kent, and Everett Target stores on the first Sunday in February to check it out.

I’m not saying they don’t know who Wu is in, say, Snohomish County, but I’m betting the lines won’t be quite as long. Then again, will the selection be as good?

Wu’s Target looks may well be at other target shops across the state; you should call around in the direction of your choice and check. The initial customer service reps at the aforementioned stores didn’t have a sliver of a clue what I was talking about when I first called, but upon explanation ("it’s like the Missoni collection, W-U.") they were able to investigate and report back. The Northgate number, btw, just rang and rang and rang and rang …
