What’s one of the single most exciting words in fashion publication? Collaboration. Nothing gets fashionistas whipped into a frenzy like the launch of a new collaborative collection, and it’s understandable: they’re unique, limited edition, and on trend, which is the dream of every sartorialist.
Today’s show highlights a few collaboration-based lines that have been featured on Sew & Tell. You’ll hear clips from interviews with Fort Makers, Feral Childe, and Alex & Eli, along with updates on Target’s next collaboration project, Orly Genger by Jacyln Mayer’s latest collab, and (gasp!) a just-launched-yesterday collaboration division of Anthropologie titled Made In Kind (spoiler alert: one of eleven collection is already sold out.)

Plus, fab-collab music tracks from Monsters of Folk, Mister Heavenly, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and The Phantom Family Halo, Vampire Weekend VS Miike Snow and more!

I know, I know! It’s all too exciting for one show, but… try to contain yourself long enough to listen up, and learn more about fashion collaborations!

A few of my favorites from Made In Kind, by Anthropologie (Eeeeee!!!)

I’m not usually into wild prints, but I love this mix from Gregory by Gregory Parkinson, especially the blue Cambria Jacket!

This Naudaine Dress is absolutely stunning, one of several amazingly elegant summer pieces from Koto Bolofo

The Rachel Rose pieces for Made in Kind are beautifully delicate, like this Senna Silk Tee – perfect for spring!

This Deity Midi Dress from Samantha Pleet is so perfect, it kind of hurts.

Zoologist from Charlotte Linton is full of feminine, bold prints, in irresistible pieces like this Laguna De Paca Dress, and Window Shades Scarf

And last but not least… I love pretty much everything from Place Nationale, for whom this is their U.S. premier collection! Probably for the best that it’s already sold out, it would have been too hard to decide between the gorgeous vintage lace pieces.

What’s your favorite Target designer collection? One of mine has to be last spring’s Calypso St. Barth collab – so perfect for the beach!
