Recessionistance: Richard Chai For Target First Look

The dames at Nylon have done a mitzvah and given us a taste of the latest GO for Target collaboration! Richard Chai's a young designer (and one of People's former "sexiest men alive") who's put in stints at Marc Jacobs and TSE and whose own work is characterized by muted shades and a "futuristic-romantic" aesthetic. From what we can see (you gotta shell out for the August issue to see the rest), this collection is both wearable and fun. So come with us to a magical fantasy Target where they have everything in your size, it all looks as good in real life as on the web, and you're the only shopper...hey, a cheapskate can dream.
