Since word of these high-low designer collabs tends to spread like wildfire, you may have already heard that Target is partnering with Altuzarra come fall. Target released a single sketch yesterday to whet our appetites, but what else can we expect from the womenswear, shoe and accessory collaboration? Let's see if Altuzzara's Fall 2014 collection can provide a few hints...

Expanding on the color blocking trend that just won't die (nor should it!), Joseph Altuzzara's Fall 2014 collection featured bold pops of colors from within his garments. This look is a total people pleaser and, again, shouldn't be too difficult to replicate at a lower price point.
Recreated in polyester fleece (à la Patagonia) and edged up with some faux leather details, nubby shearlings like these will likely be some of the most expensive and most coveted items in the Altuzarra for Target capsule collection.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT: WOVEN TEXTILES
Nope. Sadly, not gonna happen. These chunky, hand-loomed textiles were a highlight of Altuzarra's Fall 2014 collection when they appeared at New York Fashion Week, but there's no feasible way to recreate the handicraft look for cheap without verging on granny.
Well, I'll feel pretty darn foolish if none of my predictions come true, but there you have it. Altuzzara for Target lands at Target.com and at most Target stores in the U.S. and Canada on September 14, with a limited selection available globally at NET-A-PORTER.COM.
