You’ll Love Amazon’s New Fashion Collab Even More Than Target’s
You’ll never guess what company just nabbed the next big fashion designer collab. Not H&M. Not Target. Not Banana Republic either. Amazon. Yup, the online giant is launching its first-ever exclusive clothing line by Osman Yousefzada, a London-based designer known for his minimalist approach to modern feminine silhouettes (like these pieces from his Resort ’15 collection). It’ll be available with your other one-click-buy essentials in November, just in time for the holidays.
According to The Cut, the capsule collection will feature party-ready pieces like an LBD, a tuxedo jacket and the designer’s first stab at jewelry in the form of a (we’re hoping very sparkly) statement necklace. The Amazon + Osman collection will even include a Christmas sweater, though no word yet if wearing it will get you on the naughty- or nice-dressed list. Judging on the price point — all pieces will sell for under $250 — you probably won’t be wearing it to your office’s tacky sweater bash.
Even if a store is not traditionally known for its on-the-pulse style selection, brands that have partnered with designers in the past have bolstered their reputations for being a part of the fashion conversation. And the effect spreads from the style set to loyal shoppers — after Target began tapping the likes of Missoni, 3.1 Philip Lim and most recently Altuzarra, a trip to the Red Bullseye is not complete without a stroll through its clothing racks. We bet that Amazon, where we normally go to buy ebooks, groceries and all things tech, is hoping for the same kind of rewiring.
