The Isaac Mizrahi for Target Fall 2008 Collection debuts with chic autumn pieces that will delight Target guests. In classic Mizrahi style, affordable luxury is defined with go-to options for an updated look at a great value.
The Isaac Mizrahi for Target fall collection offers women must-haves for day-to-day style. Celebrate end-of-summer days with a pleated shirt dress in cream or a tie-neck dress in navy. For a lady-like look, choose a rose-print cardigan in peach and olive. Or choose a French-terry cardigan in gray with pink trim that can be drapedover women’s shoulders for nighttime festivities. Wardrobe staples, such as boot-cut trousers in khaki, can be dressed
up with a playful floral-print tee in pink and white, while the jersey wrap top in black is a more sophisticated look. A classic black pencil skirt easily transitions from a busy day at the office to a night on the town, with the addition ofstatement-making heels; a relaxed trouser skirt in green is ideal for weekend excursions.
As nights get longer, Mizrahi offers vibrant colors to brighten up any outfit—floral prints on a multicolor cardigan, and a smocked skirt in pink and yellow. Women can add elements of interest to their look with a short-sleeve blouse in blue marble print or show their feminine side with a sleeveless ruffle-front blouse in cream. Cable knit sweater vests, tie-front cardigans and scoopneck tops with bow details are aplenty for fashionable layering options. Classic dresses are brought to life with rich fabrics such as the embroidered dot shift dress in brown and cream, or the textured belted scoopneck dress in brown. As every woman knows, the “little black dress” is the must-have for special occasions; they will delight in choosing between the Ponte mini shift dress or the classic two-tone dress with cream trim.
Outerwear plays a key role for fall and ensembles feature classic menswear nuances. Women may pair a herringbone skirt in gray and blue with a matching vest, then add a retro touch with a knit tuxedo Henley in cream or a voile blouse with a tie neck in gray. A classic wool coat in orange is the perfect choice to match the autumn hues of the season, and a Ponte quilted coat in black will transition from fall to winter. Women may chose between a reversible herringbone coat in black and white or a deco coat in orange featuring a faux-fur trim as an elegant topper for a brisk day.
Mizrahi presents classic bags, shoes and sunglasses that will keep the modern woman stylish while on the go. Totes and satchels in canvas and supple leather with contrast stitching provide plenty of room for everything a woman could need during her hectic day. Mizrahi draws inspiration from men’s shoes to create feminine versions of wingtips and oxfords, making them elegant with softer lines and high heels. Woven metallic peep-toe flats in gold, patent heels in bright red, and suede loafers with buckle detail in pink round out the collection. Classic sunglasses in an array of colors complete any look and add a touch of glam.
Known for his charismatic persona and witty style, Mizrahi has won four Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards. Exploding onto the fashion scene in the late 1980s, Mizrahi’s idea of seasonless dressing has become the foundation of his design sensibility – his designs are not trend driven, so women can combine looks from different seasons to build a classic wardrobe for every occasion.
