Rodarte for Target Giveaway

I would like to announce a Rodarte for Target giveaway! Party time!
Here's how it works:

1. Write in the comments what you're most excited about for the Rodarte for Target line. It could be a specific piece, or just something about the feel of the collection you like, or anything. I've made comments anonymous-inclusive so anyone can enter. Leave your email address in the comments too so we can get your mailing address if you win.

2. I will pick 40-45 winners (but don't try to make the answer suitable to my tastes or anything. That's no fun!) We will email the winners and the pieces will be sent out.

The giveaway item is this mustard lace cardigan I said I would wear every day if I could in the collaboration video.

It's also here:I haven't taken any pictures of myself in it but it's super soft and nice to stare at when you're bored during gym WHAT WHO SAID THEY ARE BORED DURING GYM NOT ME.

Now get cracking!

EDIT: I will stop taking entries at midnight Central Standard Time on Saturday, December 19th.

EDIT AGAIN: The contest has ended, we will be emailing the winners this week. Any new entries will be ignored. Thank you to everyone who participated!

EDIT AGAIN AGAIN: Please do not email me about winning. I am basing my choices off the comments alone, emails will be ignored.

Because of the new law, I am supposed to let you know that I receieved compensation and pieces from the Rodarte for Target collection for my collaboration with Target.

I forgot to mention that I love mustard with almost anything. I put it on steak, chicken, and even fish. Heck! I even put it on rice and salad! Now, if I can only wear it... Hmmm... I must get my hands on that mustard cardigan! BUt how? *plots*

In the mean time, I leave thee my email, in case you decide to give me one which would make my life easier as it saves me time from all the plotting, poking, and such. Hey! I promise to wash my dirty little hands before touching them! ;)

Recently I haven't really enjoyed any of the target -- designer collaborations, but when I saw what Rodarte had designed I absolutely adored every piece.

Their designs remind me of classy, vintage, indie wear -- things I die for. This target collab appeals so much to me, almost every piece of the collection is a part of me, my personality, in clothing form.

Their clothes are so perfect pretty and full of sunshine. That might sound cliche and maybe a little bit off, but Rodarte makes me think of a beautiful sun set or sunshine filled day. It's True.

i am torn between two things.

1. i really can't wait to see how folks (kids, mostly & hopefully) will style the rodarte x target stuff. i am really looking forward to seeing it worn on the subway here in new york after the high schools get out. i am quite a number of years past being permanently out of high school, so i'm happy that such new and exciting garments will be accessible to people who aren't precious about wearing them. yay teenager types!

2. i'm really looking forward to seeing the textures that they put together with target-priced materials. many of the designer collaborations w mass marketers suffer so much in the materials. since rodarte's stuff is so much about texture, i'm curious to see how that works out. i'm already happy to hear that the yellow cardigan is soft......

I looove the lace stockings. I would wear those with EVERYTHING! Seriously. They will look especially excellent with my flower Docs. I <3 the 90s.

I feel like an old lady posting alongside so many clever and stylish young women- Rodarte reminds me of my teenaged years skating the line between respectable honor student and punk rocker in love with sneaking out to go to the Continental and Coney Island High and just be out and about around St Mark's Place with my then boyfriend, a striking bright blue mohawked guy with a big heart and a temporary stint as the Casualties' drummer..Now I'm "all grown up" as they say, married (to former bass player in a ska band instead) with an almost 3 year old little girl whom I hope will be as much of a brainy individual and wordsmith with a passion for something beautiful and good and for sharing that passion-as you do.

- I work as an RN so I don't have the opportunity to show off my tastes in fashion beyond the vintage Swatch watches I've saved up for and the jewelry I comb etsy for..

As for the Target collection- when I saw the leopard jacket I was transported back in time- both to my real life of nights out with friends and to the imaginary world where I spent 1977 through 82 or so in London and Berlin as a just legal adult and got to witness all my favorite music when it was new and being born- but as I was just kinda learning to walk in 77, I missed out.

The Mulleavy sisters make a crazy quilt of vintage trends and events - music, ephemera, cinema, moods even, and magically create wearable art. I am hoping to be able to get some pieces at Target- my county has blue laws that keep stores closed on Sundays- before the younger and wealthy girls get there and buy it all out- I'd love to get some investment pieces to love for awhile- and then store for my little girl to wear in a few years..The tulle skirts are enchanting and the leopard dress with the bow back actually brings the sound of vinyl playing in the background of a smoky room to life for me..It's all beautiful and I love that some designers are sharing their work with the people who work really hard just to pay their bills but still want something beautiful...

And she looks beautiful in yellow.

I have been counting down the days until the Rodarte for Target line since August... I can't believe there is only a day and a few hours left! Yay! I'm getting to Target early and waiting at the door... I swear if someone stands between me and my Rodarte I will "accidently" trip them.. (insert evil laugh here)

I am in lust with the lace print dress with the tan lace cardigan, bow belt, and lace tights in black! That look book picture made me gasp when i saw it! All of the pieces in this line are so beautiful! I can't wait to mix and match the different pieces with the other pieces in the line and with my wardrobe!

The most excited of Rodarte for Target line for me is to enjoy the big brand name's design by affordable price. I always insist that the key for big name win is the details (including choice of textile and color, excellent cut and considerable design), which will make me different and high class. Of course, how to match these amazing clothes is another excited part. I think Rodarte for Target line is casual party clothes style, which is very easy to dress in the party, not too ceremonious, not too random.

You are such a law abiding citizen ;)

The collection gives me a warm feeling kind of like the Sissy Spacek movie "Badlands". have you seen that?
And also "The Ice Storm". But maybe the inspiration video seeped into my brain a little much. But those movies, make me want to wear leopard and bows down my back and yellow gauzy lacey cardis.

Anna G said...

I'm such a little fan-geek but ever since I saw you in those lazer cut socks, from what feels like years ago, I've gotten ready to whip out the credit cards to buy as many pairs I can get my little hands on.

But as for actual clothes, the dotted light blue dress is basically stunning. I hope it's just as lovely. I can from the video that many will not be disappointed.

Love,
Anna (anna.g.adams@gmail.com)

Eli said...

I really love the sheer blue dress. It's amazing

Anonymous said...

I'm super excited for this collection because of the Harold and Maude inspiration. I remember seeing the movie about 6 years ago when my parents mentioned it and it has been my favorite movie ever since. So anything related to or inspired by that movie is probably amazing. Also, I LOVE the yellow color of the giveaway sweater. I just had a professor this semester who would only wear whites, browns, and yellows, and I was totally inspired by her wearing this exact yellow color....she made the color seem so much more interesting than anything I would have ever tried. Would love to win it! Thanks!

My wardrobe has been begging for something in just that shade of yellow. Seriously. I need that piece. The details are stellar; same goes for the whole collection.

Thanks :)

I'm most excited about the leopard dress.
I think it's such a great piece and can be worn a number of different ways; whether with my maroon Doc Martens or maybe a more dressed-up look with black tights and suede booties. Seriously, I can't wait for the collection!

Xue said...

Oh geez oh geez oh geez! Uhh, the rough part is that this is going to sound totally lame. But: Hands-down, that cardigan. I actually am not suuuper psyched for it in black, but in mustard? Stunning.

Michael said...

I'm impressed that the Rodarte brand as a whole is heading in a direction that sooo many others have, with regards to chain store collaborations. That sounds bad, right? Well, it very well may be, and quite the slippery slope for Rodarte, but in contrast, one of the things I think the Mulleavy ladies have going for them is that their designs are truly original (Target collaborations aside). Because of this I have trouble understanding as to why they would want to "water-down" their brand to make it more "accessible." Personally, I find it hard to find any Rodarte DNA flowing within these Target pieces (although I may just be completely delusional). Tavi, you obviously have more experience with Rodarte and with Laura and Kate. Can you tell me whyyyyyyyyyyy?!

m.jodixon@gmail.com (a reply would be cool, not a cardigan, thanks!)

Rikki Tikki,

I Love Rodarte for Target, mainly because I love Rodarte and I love Target. I dont't have a specific piece, I think they could all be styled a hundred different ways which is pretty stupendous. I love seeing two opposite people pulling off the same thing- if that makes sense. Like a who wore it better- Lady GaGa or Michelle Obama- with a 50/50 tie.

My favorite is some of the colors they use. The mustard yellow, peaches and deep blues. The line has a lot of vintage glam to it, which usually takes a lot of money or thrifting to be able to execute. But to get vintage glam at Target is so accessible- it is kind of genius.

Anywho, I am not looking for a free cardigan because I am a guy and cross dressing is not my personal style- though I may be able to rock that cardigan under a gray blazer? Oh the options

But Tavi if you are reading this maybe you could use your pull and get your friend Marc to do a men's collection for Target. What about John Varvatos? I just wish menswear received the attention female fashion does- oh well,a boy can dream, no?

Thank you for your blog, it is quite inspiring.

Fellow cold Chicagoan,
Jacques

Mmm, I like dreaming of the possibilities each piece has. This collection is so versatile and delicate. I, too, like the mustard cardigan. It looks so soft and the color is great!

I'm totally excited about the bra tops, despite the fact that many men have bigger boobs than me. Whatever. It's too cute to not have in my possession (the bra top... not my boob-less chest).

BUT the thing I am absolutely in love with is the lace cardigan!!!!!!!!!! (I'd add on more exclamation points, but it would look ridiculous).
People that know me, know that I have a huge obsession with lace. I practically live in lace. Doesn't matter what kind of lace it is-- colored lace, grandma lace, odd textured lace, cheap lace-- I love them all! I'm even wearing lace panties right now! Ok... maybe that was too much information.

Have I said the word "lace" enough to get my point through?

Anyway, the one thing that I love about Rodarte's lace cardigan is the longer length and the fact that it has pockets!
Now don't even get me started on pockets. I probably love pockets as much as I love lace. No, wait, lace is still ahead. but right after that, it has to be pockets.

I sound terribly idiotic and repetitive right now, but I'm just much too excited to think properly enough to compose more eloquent sentences.

Thank you for the giveaway opportunity! Very sweet of you.

I really love it all, i do. My wallet, however, does not approve. Therefore, I would love to see the line face to face, drool on it, pet it, etc etc. I'm pretty sure I'd have to go with the leopard dress though. Something about the vintagey (sp?) look of it and the ridiculously cute bows really does it for me! Anyhoo, gracias chica so much for the sweet giveaway.

I'm most excited about the fact that Kate and Laura's kin can finally be in part my own and that I'll be able to share all these clothing-related stories with my grandchildren in 50 years time. Yeah, I'm going to be a cool grandmother. I think I'm also excited to buy my own grandmother some Rodarte for Target, yeah I am.

Emmy said...

Of all of the collaboration pieces I've been obsessing over lately, I think I could honestly write my love in countless sonnets and odes to the champagne lace overlay dress. Then again, I'm no good at either, so I'll have to be content pouring over the lookbook while trying to figure out if the collection will be sold at my local Target...because the Target website is unbelievably useless. Laura and Kate, however, can do no wrong.

I'm beyond excited about this contest, I almost screamed!

By far Rodarte for target might be my favorite collection of all the choices from Go International at Target! I'm in LOVE with the pink sheer dress you've actually wore a lot, with the bows on the shoulder. That light pink has become one of my favorite colors of the winter season, and I'm so excited that the dress is exactly what I dreamed. I'm also loving that it comes in two colors, I have no idea which would I would pick but I love that it can either be really classic in black or more girly in the pink shade! But to be honest, everything in the collection is perfect - all the bows make everything ten times better and I can not wait till it comes out in my target on sunday!

Lace and Leopard and Bows, Oh my! Need I say more? I loves me a good high-low collab. and Rodarte for Target is the most highly anticipated yet ( in my humble opinion anyway).

Really though, the Mulleavy sisters are visionaries. I love the bizarre world that their designs come from, (from the burnt earth/woman/condor/scars of the Spring 2010 rtw to the gray marble of the Fall 2009 gorgeousness) its all transcendent and I L.O.V.E. every second of it!

I also love how their art background comes through, which is just another reason their fearless, unique designs are such standouts.

Love the blog Tavi, keep up the good work!

I am most excited that this is a collection that lots of age groups can take advantage of. For myself, I'm in my 30's,I love the kimono raincoat. For my teenage sister, the lt blue swiss polka dot and mesh dress. For my mom the striped tee, well actually my mom is so cool she could carry off most of it and for my 23 year-old sister, the cardigans. She dresses to the beat of her own drum and she would so love the lace, length and those snaps! M grandmother, who was a wonderful painter and fashionista, would have adored Rodarte and been going with me to Target to have some of her own! This collection being for all ages and all generations, makes it so engaging. Kudos to the lovely and creative dervishes, the Mulleavy sisters!

apparently my comment failed to send last time, so here it is again:
i'm terribly excited about the leopard jacket by rodarte for target. i think it will bring out the rawrrrr in me!
i'm also loooooving the lace on everything, especially the cardigans. i don't wear much color, and would like to wear more. oh and mustard actually looks good on me! (the color, please. definitely not the food. it doesn't look good on anybody, except for a veggie dog...)

i LOVED the leopard print dress the first time i saw it on dakota fanning in teen vogue, but your picture that showed the bows on the back!!! i had no idea!!! sooooo cute & different :)

Katie and Kelci said...

I'm most looking forward to the animal print-esque dress (3 bows in back) & any & all tulle skirts!! I also look forward to wearing the dress tucked into a black skirt or worn with a cool leather jacket. Honestly I'm just stoked to go to target & see it all in person, & really understand it all. I also can't wait to see some the pieces that I haven't seen yet in the lookbook & just putting things together with random things that I already have. i haven't anticipated any target collection as much as this so that in & of itself is fun.

i've been more excited about this collab than any single one target has done in the past. so much lace and tulle, want to be in a room with every single piece and play dress up.

the slip dress may be my favorite piece, if only because i can hear my mother telling me to put on some clothes. she yelled at me in high school for trying to pass pretty little vintage slips off as dresses. now i can reply "but MOMMMM, it's a DRESS. JEEZ."

salina said...

lace!! and loads of it.
The rib cage dress and that mustardy yellow cardigan. The whole collection is 1920s gangster debutant - and I mean that in the *best* was possible.
pick me pretty please.

Anonymous said...

Hi Tavi, well the part I am most excited is actually the ability to have something by Rodarte. They are just such amazing designers and that in turn makes their clothes unbelievable. I remember reading a story in Vogue about then a few years back about emerging talent and I just felt instantly in love with the dress that was pictured. It was this kind of blueish gray column with like kind of vertical ruffles ( I am not good at describing). Anyway ever since then I have just been fascinated by them. So finally being able to own a Rodarte piece of clothing is unbelievable. It might not be from their main line but it still has the same kind of vibe in a way. The piece I will definitely get will be the leopard print dress, I have never been a big leopard print person but when I saw that dress, it just seemed right, I had to have it. I mean it's Rodarte, they do no wrong.

I'm thrilled Target will be selling the beautiful clothes from the label, Rodarte. I am a University student so don't have a lot of money but I love clothes and this means I will be able to afford to buy Rodarte clothing! I feel like Kate and Laura Mulleavy know how to make beautiful clothing for modern women which makes them feel unique, gorgeous and special. I adore all of the Rodarte peices especially the mustard cardigan because I live in cardigans and love lace!

*gasp* this contest sounds absolutely amazing!
I've been looking forward to the entire collection (2 days!!), it seems the Rodarte girls actually put effort into this collaboration, unlike other Target-designer ones of recent times...I'm especially loving the furry Bonnie-and-Clyde-inspired piece you showed in the video, and that slip dress w/ bows on the shoulder that's been in promotional pieces everywhere. Both are so beautiful, and, to use a cliche, they're "to die for." haha
I just realized my comment is not half as deep or contemplative as most others...but I'm too lazy to change it...oh well
Thanks for reading my rambling and probably non-coherent comment, Tavi!

The glittery ribcage dress!! Why is no one else talking about the glittery ribcage dress?? Fine, that's a nice shade of yellow, and yes, yes, leopard, but THE GLITTERY RIBCAGE DRESS!!

The Somnambulist said...

I'm excited because the Rodarte for Target line brings some of the basic design aesthetics from their regular line to the masses, for really reasonable prices. The clothes are lacy and feminine, but also tasteful, unique, and a little edgy. I know that this collaboration is opening people's eyes to the joy that is Rodarte, which in turn leads them to further explore fashion.

Also, specifically, I'm lusting after the black sequin rib cage dress.

Ha ha. Don't worry. I sit and count how many breaths I take during a class period. (I have found that it does not make time go faster when you are in pretty much any class except if you are running laps.)

I loveth all the cardigans. The lace ones are my favorite of all, but especially the tan one. It seems like something my grandma would wear (if my grandma was, well, younger again, and didn't just wear pleated pants every day). Like something you would find in an attic covered in dust. Ahaha. Dust! Old things are so awesome. I would have to carry an old dictionary and wear my glasses for once. "Oh yeah, I'm not a closet nerd, I'm a grandma's attic nerd. Boo. Yah!"

I am most excited for the sequin rib cage dress because it is seriously the best party dress EVER and I would wear it not only to parties but everywhere else as well. It would be awesome to fly in. Or do anything at all in.

Lace and tulle are some of my FAVORITE things to incorporate into my wardrobe so I am super super excited to be able to have these pieces in my wardrobe. I love the style, aesthetic, and everything about the line! Rodarte is amazing and I am excited to be able to own something from them! As a girl struggling to make it in the fashion industry, I can only drool over designer clothing and the is one of the only ways that I can have a piece of them for my own! Yay Rodarte! Yay Target!

C.Sarah said...

This is so sweet of you! I promise I'm not choosing this because you said you love it yourself, but I swear I've been looking for a long, drapey mustard yellow cardigan for the longest time so I absolutely can't wait to pick one up Sunday :)

Leopard print: tacky?
But somehow so stylish yo
i think i love it?

(So, basically I used to always yell about how annoying leopard print was but, fortunately, my eyes have been opened. LEOPARD PRINT CAN BE REALLY COOL, YOU HAVE PROVEN. i would wear the leopard print dress with oversized black wedges, black sunglasses, black headscarf, bright red lipstick, while holding an unusually large cigarette holder. audrey hepburn safari style.)

Note: I do not actually smoke. I'd just hold the holder because those things are so cool.

I'm no fashion expert or anything, but I keep up with fashion in an offhand kind of way, looking at style.com and reading the occasional Vouge and what not. I cannot afford most of that stuff like most, but I still adore looking at it and seeing colors, textures and patterns combined in marvelous ways.
So when Target started its bringing-a-famous-designer's-clothes-into-the-store trend, I was like SWEET.
Many of the collections so far have been nice, but this recent Rodarte one is one of the best I've seen! The only other collection I liked this much is Thakoon's!
And just btw, mustard is a good color on me.

Lexi-Lupa said...

The Rodarte for Target collection is the line I have hoped and prayed for. Not specifically, mind you, but it was in there somewhere.

Fashions like this (That a fourteen year old like me) can actually afford in Utah nonetheless are very hard to come by.
I love how this collection is so diverse, and I am practically DYING over the fact that it was partially based off of Bonnie and Clyde. {I named my cats Bonnie and Clyde after the lovely movie and duo, that is how much I love that movie.} You look at some of the pieces like the creme bow dress with the lace sweetheart neckline that practically oozes similairities to the dress Bonnie wears in the death scene (except much more tasteful, without the blood and everything)as well as looks really really soft.

I Absolutely this whole collection! (And I'm not just saying that because I want a free cardigan in my favorite color.)
(Do I use these parenthesis enough?Methinks not.)

Thanks for consideration and whatnot!!

I'm most excited for the sequin rib cage dress because it's the one piece in the collection that's caused me to take me to a few different places, in my mind. This piece is so versatile, which can create many different looks, whether you're going to class or going dancing.

There's so many things to choose from the Rodarte collection. I love everything about. Definitely how it's different than most put-together brands out there, even the ones with their own "store" so call-it. I don't know how I would make a Rodarte piece work with my wardrobe, but I know I'd find a way. :3

I really appreciate the girliness of a lot of the pieces. The lace blows my mind. I’m not the most feminine looking gal in the world and I feel much more ladylike in fancy little get ups. I’m what I like to call a "tage-holic" and I feel that they have done good by their customers, with past lines, and with this. Oh did I mention the lace?!? Ya, it's amazing. And of course I love the tights. I'm not so much a fan of pink, so the pink skirt does nothing for me, but otherwise the colors are perfect.

Pashupati said...

I really like the shapes (just look at the mustard dress of your post!) of the whole collection and the colors (yes, this is exciting!), and also the fact some look vintage. I love vintage clothing. Well, I think everybody can do something good and original with this collection's clothes, just need a little brain. Not a large brain, no, just a little.
Also, I really like the way it is presented in publicity and things.
What excite me the most is that, living in France, I have no Target. Hell, hope I can participate.
(God! That skull t-shirt! That leopard dress! Hate you, americans: you have all the good things!)

Oh Gosh. So, okay. All week I've been counting down the days until the Rodarte Collection was supposed to hit the shelves. Monday morning, I ran like a maniac (aka- got into my gas hog of a car and drove a little over the speed limit for ten minutes) and made my way to Target only to find absolutely nothing. No Rodarte. Eeh Gawd. I kind of keeled over. I'm trying to exercise my patience, but life is hard without a leopard dress with bows down the back and a mustard cardigan. I'm not begging am I? Oy Vey.

Thank you for doing this give away, it truly made my day a heck of a lot better. You're a good ol' gal.

I will part on one word:
TULLE.

Lace and tulle are some of my FAVORITE things to incorporate into my
wardrobe so I am super super excited to be able to have these pieces in
my wardrobe. I love the style, aesthetic, and everything about the
line! Rodarte is amazing and I am excited to be able to own something
from them! As a girl struggling to make it in the fashion industry, I
can only drool over designer clothing and the is one of the only ways
that I can have a piece of them for my own! Yay Rodarte! Yay Target!

Oh how much fun!!

Honestly I am bananas about the yellow cardi!! My whole room is monochromatic yellow and it's fun to blend in sometimes!!!!

The name Rodarte just rolls right off the tongue...

High-waisted tights are a miraculous invention...and the Target line include high-waisted lace tights...WITH A LITTLE BLACK BOW.

Thx

Wow, Rodarte for Target. Well.. I'm excited for the whole thing because, as I suspect is the case for most people, the main line is just sadly out of my price range. The designs are so beautiful that this Target collaboration just HAD to happen, and finally these gorgeous clothes (I think they're better considered works of art) can be available to everyone who appreciates them! I love the leopard print dress, and the one with the bows. I would love for my days to consist with a bit of Rodarte :) Love love love.

the thing i an most most most looking forward to in the Rodarte for target range (as if i'm not looking forward to all of it) is the incredible sequin rib cage dress in black. not only does it bring together my love of little black dresses and dressing up like a skeleton, but it's also sparkly, something i only recently realized that my wardrobe is lacking, another thing it is lacking is a gorgeous yellow lacy cardigan...

anyway here's the ole email:

i am so enthralled by this collection and opportunity to have a bit of the rodarte vision in my closet. i feel a certain connection to the designers because they were raised in santa cruz, where i live, and they have achieved their success as designers immensely as i hope to one day. previous collections in the guest designer project target has going have been seriously lacking in design and luster. This is the first time i literally want EVERYTHING that a guest designer has brought to the table. The pieces are versatile, yet original and ( my favorite old lady term) "fun". "oh that top is so fun!" = old lady looking through vintage looking for some spice in her wardrobe. The clothing is quite my style and my favies would have to be the rib-cage top, cardigans, and slip dress. Well im off, have a lovely day

i'm excited for the Rodarte collaboration with Target because i've loved Rodarte for a very long time but have never been able to afford it, even in my wildest dreams. I love that its inspired by three of my favorite films and that it's so whimsy and playful. A gorgeous gorgeous line.

I bought the ripstop rain slicker today, and I'm stoked! All the pieces are beautiful, but this little overjacket is going to keep me dry and adorable in rainy days. It's cool to know the print is inspired by a vintage kimono, it makes me want to wander around on a drizzly day in a japanese tea garden. <3

I L-O-V-E Rodarte, so I can't wait to get my hands on this stuff on Dec. 20! But what I'm really excited for is, as Joshua Thomas (a Target rep.) put it- " The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur." I like to play with patterns and details, and it seems like they are staying true to Rodarte, and are paying attention to those things. Yay!

I love this line! I'm totally loving the feminine feel of the whole collection; lace... everything! I'm glad Target has teamed up with, yet another, fashion-forward brand. I'm going to Target soon & hopefully there will be some clothes from the collection left for me!

Ooh, a giveaway. I'm most excited to see in person the sleeveless leopard sequin dress because the only picture I've seen of it is with a cardigan belted over it. I've seen dozens of photos of the other leopard dress with the sleeves and ribbons on the back. But all leopard prints should be treated equally!!! Thanks.

The rawness of the collection has to be my favorite part. Most people wouldnt look at it as raw but raw doesnt necessarily mean hipster clothing torn to shreds. I love the offbeat colors and the lace. Plus the idea of pairing these pieces with combat boots makes me just want to float. When i first saw the collection i immedietly thought that i could see the charachter Lindsay Weir from Freaks and Geeks layering the yellow pieces and wearing them to prom. She walks in with combat boots and her green army styled jacket and all of a sudden she takes off her jacket and pladow. Shes wearing an offbeat but cute dress.

One of my favorite things about Rodarte (and fashion in general, I 'spose) is: contradiction. I love when seemingly disparate textures/styles/shapes come together in a way that makes the old opposites-attract adage ring true. One example: the sequined rib-cage dress. I'll admit to having a taste for slightly morbid motifs, and love the way the could-be-icky-but-isn't skeletal print pops against the feminine, out-on-the-town sequin backdrop. Yu-mmy. 'Nuff said? I think so.

Everything lace, everything lace! I've been so excited for all of Target's collaborations, and - don't tell them I said this - have been slightly disappointed, despite trying not to be. When I heard talk of Rodarte's collection, I was expecting the same thing (so sad, I'm sorry!), but - wait for it - was COMPLETELY blindsided by how awesome it is. Honestly, I want it all. I don't think there's one piece I don't love. I will go broke buying everything four times, because that's how far my love extends. Seriously, wonderful. I may camp outside of Target and be the Governator in Jingle All the Way if it comes down to it. I would fight mailman Sinbad for that lace. I think I may have dreamed out the cream-colored dress. Pure love.

I would rather bathe a rabid, feral cat than eat mustard. And I'd put all those pretty little pink bows in its fur too. Just for kicks. However, the cardigan in said yellowish color is ridiculous. ...ly awesome. and beautiful. and it makes me almost wish I enjoyed the condiment. Which I dont. But the cardigan is fantastic.

hi tavi :)

just letting you no that i l-l-l-love the rodarte for target collection. Loving the whole feel of the collection and how it is inspired by three movies, its so cute! Its such a strong collection but also has little touches of femininity with the lace. My favourite is the black dress with the bows!

i'm from perth, australia, the world's most isolated capital city! so this collection gives me hope that there are more like minded people out there in this wide world that are also inspired by everything around them.

Hey, I am absolutely dying about Rodarte's collection for Target. It is not everyday that you see such accessible, but still cool clothes. This is the most amazing mass market collection I've ever seen by such high end designers! It's the coolest thing that they kept the edge to the clothes, by not making the clothes cheesy with unnecessary embellishments as most people do when they are trying to relate to the mass market. I am so completely in LOVE with the blush colored tulle/slip dress that you wore in teen vogue! Also, I love that little shrug piece; it is clear that every piece from this line is on my Christmas list!! Okay, about that great mustard cardigan... I am in DYING over the color, like head over heels in LOVE with it. It is about the same color as Michelle Williams' Vera Wang dress from the 2005 oscars, the one that is my inspiration for life itself mostly for the color. and I love the fact that the color is used in such an easy way so that it stands out, but in an elegant yet powerful way. And Tavi, you are so lucky to have made it so far in the fashion industry all on your own at such a young age. congrats Tavi on your great blog and teen vogue spread! And super talented sisters of Rodarte, thank you for making my holiday a LOT brighter with your collection for target! Its pieces are so relatable to everyone of all different ages that I know it will sell out FAST: I just hope I can get to target quick enough before its all sold!! thanks!

VP said...

I was really surprised and happy to see this collaboration- surprised at the fact that they really hadn't used their signature look (I believe) yet they made it so simple and unique, with their own taste is reflecting. It may sounds ironic but I think some of the pieces are looking so vintage, like one of its kind, only for you.

And I would wear that lovely mustard lace cardigan, wear my favorite delicious chocolate colored rain boots and run around my old highschool screaming I love fashion and math sucks, loud and clear, especially in front of my old calc class.

I really hated that class.

i love the lace tule skirts, the double layers and pleats and then then the lace insert that sort of looks like a fungus creeping up. nomnomnomnom. I also think that printing onto lace is the best idea ever, and the bows are insanity. The photo of you in the lace dress reminds me of lady gaga when shes got the crazy spine in bad romance. heehee. i'd get the skirt in mustard, because mustard is LORD OVER ALL THE OTHER MINION COLOURS.

I'm mostly excited to get some cute party dresses! My wardrobe is so casual, that I realized I had nothing to wear for fun special occasions, despite the sheer enormity of my clothing collection.

So I'll be looking forward to the blue swiss dot dress and the cream lace dress--maybe even the black. They all look so great!

What got me most excited for the Rodarte for Target line was when I saw the adverts in the magazines I had bought, especially waiting for a spree to open up on the internet which would be my gateway to heaven cause there ain't no Targets in Singapore. The feeling which the collection has given me excites me like watching my favourite band perform, it makes me feel as if I could be one of the stylish girls I see on the streets. The excitement itself is well, making me want to go to the toilet. The personality of the collection is ridunkulous (thats a new word I just learnt from watching Bolt just now!), it makes me feel so well, its indescribable. ITS HUGE! :) The collection for a normal, book-loving girl like me is embraceable(is that a word?) and lets just say I LOVE IT! I hope I've used enough brain power for this :D

RIDUNKULOUS! :)

dude, rodarte x target, are we kidding me? it's like santa gifted the human race early. LOVED their collabo. i'm especially digging the slip dress in black and their lace cardigans (in all colors, haha). the styling of the mustard cardigan on the black tank and yellow skirt was so cute! i'd probably trade out the chunky boots for a killer pair of black ankle boots, for a more bratty bumble bee look, but that's just me.

the style.com vid shots of north dakota totally reignited my desire to roadtrip out of california and see the rest of the country-- it's so pretty!

What I like most about Rodarte for Target line is all the patterns that are involved. Fine laces and delicate other patterns. This makes thie line very feminine and pretty. Nevertheless, what I am most excited about is, that once worn the pieces do not look overcute, but make the women wearing it look cool and self-conscious. That is what I would like to be.

Being truthfully honest, I've never really taken great, detailed notice of Rodarte, but seeing your video on Style.com I was really intrigued about not only this collection but Rodarte as a whole.

I'm in love with their pleated tulle skirt; the colour is perfect and it has a great lightness about it. It's truly magical eye candy and would make me feel like a fairy :) I like fairies! Anyway, it would go great with the lace tights! Oooh, might I add that I love the black slip dress as well! Very simple and classy!

its looks incredibly comfortable and it would probably save me from frostbite...
yellow would stop me sliding into winter depression, just by looking at it i could be HAPPY. so those are my reasons.. :)

I see hundres posts, but maybe saturday will be my lucky day...

So, in my opinion the best is black lace kardigan. It's so simply, but could make the whole outfit unique. It suits to jeans and simply black top, then you look more than only casual. Or, with dress, then the lace makes the outfit really chic.
So my last words I say to Radarte: nice job :)

The best thing about Rodarte doing a line for target is the fact that I'll be able to afford it!

That's the best part of this collaboration- that I can afford to wear pieces by great designers.

This is sooo awesome.
I also really love the mustard lace cardigan, it's such a rich color and a wonderful texture. I like the lace and tulle mustard skirt as well- it's a nice pop of color! But that Nude Lace Dress with the pearl grey bows... makes my heart sing! It's so lovely and nostalgic, sweet like an old sepia-toned photograph. It feels like Edgar Degas' "La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans", "The Little Dancer Age 14". Yes, exactly! I guess in general I really love where Kate and Laura Mulleavy took the inspiration-- all these vintage, sweet pieces. Bonnie and Clyde, for goodness' sakes! All of the nice, unique textures, colors, and prints excite me. Thanks Rodarte, Target, and you, Tavi, for all of this! :)

First of all, this may or may not be enjoyable for you but this is a lot of responses to sort through so I suppose sorry for adding to your troubles? Ha, well, at any rate, I think the best way to express my excitement about the Rodarte for Target collection is to emphasize or point out the piece(s) that definitely inspired me and had some feeling to them (in my view).
The main piece that had this effect was the "Swiss Dot Dress" in blue. It was one of those things where, giving it an initial glance, you're thinking "Hm..alright then..a plain blue dress", but then you begin, gradually, to notice all the complex and intricate little details that make it interesting. Yet, at the same time, you can still see it as simple and easily worn with other things. I am staring at it right now and I have to saw it's amazing. I am also really psyched about the "Lace Cardigan" in tan. It might be the mustard one in more of a nude color but both colors are sweet. The "Lace and Tulle Skirt" in navy is great as well. Finally, the "Cut-Out Knee-Highs in tan/peach..I don't know if they could be classified as life-changing but I just want them so badly ha.

Alright, this is even longer than I anticipated so doubly sorry about you having to read it.

gahh! I would kill for the nude cardigan but I have to say the lovely babyblue dress is my favourite. especially with the leopardprint-ribbon-belt and doc. marten's! I sort of love-hate the colour of the dress but it would look amazingly freaky with my dark red hair. I would wear it all the time - at ms Marple-marathons with self-made rodarte leggins, at school with doc. marten's and a black (sort of see-thru) poncho, to my graduation with white creepers... I would wear it in bed with thick wollen socks. Pure love.

I remember when I was about six I read a fairy book. The book itself was fairly saccharine, but there was this one bit in it where these spiders made beautiful silken dresses for the fairies. I can recall thinking ‘Wow, that’s freakin awesome,’ (or at least the six-year old equivalent of that.) Anyway the Tardarte cardigans remind me of this, they look like they’ve been made by lots of little spiders, little spiders which have perhaps snacked on a few to many mustard and mushroom pink colored flies. So the cardis are definitely my favorite part of the collection.

OK, I wrote a fantastic comment, but it seems to have disappeared...and I can't quite remember what I wrote, but I'll try...

I love the idea of taking inspiration from old movies and translating it into modern fashion, of these two art forms combining.

I really like that the collection is very accessible, yet still retains the aesthetic of Rodarte.

My favorites are the bow belts and lace tights, all very fun and easy to incorporate into any wardrobe. I like that there's a formal feel to everything, yet I can see how easy it would be to mix things into a more casual look. I love the lace cardigan in any color, and I especially like it over the gray sequin leopard dress.

Actually I have three favorites which are non-interchangeable -at least I should see them in real life to decide. The lacy cardigans. The lingerie dress with tulle overlay. Hosiery, including both lace tights and those awesome OTK socks.

What I'm least exited about is that Target does not ship to Europe. Boo, a big one.

Thumbs up for me!

I love the nude lace look - the dress and cardigan are both amazing.

I love how Rodarte have taken their esthetic added: some beautiful colours and fabrics, classic easy to wear silhouettes,
a pinch of salt, two eggs (organic if availabl) Baked it in an oven gas mark 3 for 25 mins. and HEY PRESTO!
a beautiful collection fit for any woman wanting to look her best.

Well done to Rodarte for chooseing Target for this project. bringing a label that most people could only ever dream of wearing and making it available to a whole new world of women. "TWO THUMBS UP!!"

The thing I'm most excited about Rodarte for Target is this competition. Seriously. I live in Ireland where we don't have Target or Rodarte so this is pretty much my only chance to get some of it! Also I have been looking for a mustard cardi for a while. Coincidence? I think not!

But if I do get over excited and spend a fortune on ebay shipping and customs I'd buy the lace/tulle skirts, in pink and navy. They would slip perfectly into my wardrobe. Then I'd go for the lace tulle/dresses, the blue swiss dot dress...all perfect. And I would love to try on the leopard print dress, its not the kind of thing I'd usually wear at all but I'm strangely attracted to it and if I lived in the U.S. I'm pretty sure it would find its way into my wardrobe. Those bows are just wonderful!

Thanks for running the comp!

THE SLIP DRESS IN BLACK
ugh i've been looking for an affordable version of this for whoever knows how long?!?! It reminds me of something somebody like Agyness Deyn would wear which really appeals to me as she's pretty much my current style icon.
I love how everything is so wearable and unique even though it will be sold in mass haha.
Uhhh.... I also wouldn't mind owning that cardigan ;)
silly me, forgetting my manners... please :)

miss milki said...

Forgot to say - I loved your video. Well done! I'd have been pretty shy talking to all those famous people, but you were great! :)

I love Rodarte. Always! The Target collection is inspirational for so many reasons. I love how the whole collection can be layered so that whatever the original inspiration, it can be interpreted a slightly different way every time.*genius*

My favourite piece has to be the printed t-shirt inspired by their mothers kimono.
I bought a top recently because it reminded me of a cheetah brooch that my mother wore in the eighties...it is really a statement of how individual style can be when influenced by memories, loved ones and assorted flotsam and jetsam from your childhood. Almost like a creative lucky dip and every time you pull your hand out, you are clutching something unique and meaningful to you.

I love clothes with humour so I love the rib print dress. I read it was inspired by Harold's (Harold and Maude) fascination with death. That playful humour can be so hard to get right. Pus it looks amazing layered with that striped t-shirt!

I love the faux lambskin short sleeve vest. Simply because it is beautiful. *Sigh*

And finally I love the mustard cardigan or I wouldn't be here making a fool of myself in your comment box.;)

First of all, I think that RODARTE as name sounds sooo nice and different..Their sweaters reminds me a mix of de Stijl art movement and deep expressionism..So,as I saw from the video I liked the Rosemary's baby clothes and especially the black little adress in the pictures above..thank you Tavi!

I'm stoked on the collection because the Rodarte girls pay such attention to detail. I love the fact that these pieces can be worn as statement pieces reflecting amazing runway garments and it's still at an affordable price point. Plus some are risque but they're fashioned in such a way that reflects a classier style, which I adore, and thus you can wear it without feeling like a hooah ("whore".. in a jersey accent.. excuse the vulgarity, and no I'm not from jersey...).

I really really love how the collection was inspired by Harold and Maude, Bonnie and Clyde, and Rosemary's Baby. They're such classic films and they integrate key elements of them so well into the collection. I especially love the mohair-ish bolero thing. Totally want that in my closet NOW.

Uh. I don't believe that my comment (number 400?) will be original, but I try to think so. I love that Rodarte collection, but it not going to be in my country. If I've got more pocket money I would buy that mustard cardigan or amazing leopard dress or great tights or... Ok, I'll stop. Anyways, in these clothes I'll look more stylish and I'll can boast my unfashionable friends, who don't know, who Coco Chanel was. Ha!

today (well yesterday) i realized that i had no yellow in my wardrobe and for a while i been dying to find something yellow. the mustard color is just perfect. it's bold yet and obnoxiously blinding everyone in sight. and i love the lace details and its lenght. and i love all the pieces are inspired by movies. that's pretty wicked (for lack of better word). i would tell you which piece is my favorite but there's too many!!! aaaaaaah!!!!

ah ha ha ha. sorry for this strange rant thing and that it sounds really lame (for lack of better word). i hate using the word lame but i have a really horrible vocabulary. which sucks when i have to write in-class essays (oh there i go again....)

I love the leopard dress, and the black lace shirt above that would be cool.

The collaboration between Rodarte and Target is awesome.

Liane said...

There are too, TOO many things about this line that I'm looking forward to. I love all the designers Target pairs up with, not only because the pieces produced through these partnerships are amazing, but just because I think it's fantastic that designer clothes can be actually affordable!

I love the tulle skirts featured in the video. They look amazing and beautiful -- and so fun! I'd love LOVE to wear those under all my other skirts. And, seriously? That cardigan is beautiful.

(And, as always, you are AMAZING.)

The one thing I would be excited for if I lived in the United States still and had a Target would be the cream-coloured mohair-ish vest. I think I could add that to a lot of my daily looks by layering, layering, layering. It looks very versatile! (Not to mention soft!) And besides that, I'm a sucker for anything that looks or feels sheep-like. Softtt.

I've also considered buying a plane ticket home just to lurk through the aisles in Target to check out what items I haven't seen on the internet. I'm so curious about the small things - stockings, accessories, the like.

There's that! :3

hmmm, I haven't had a chance to investigate the pieces, so I have to say I'm excited because a collab with a freaking HUGE company for two young, unbelievably talented WOMEN designers is one of the most awesome things to hear about. For any creative person, being recognised as being of (marketable) value is of great worth, even if its not what drives you, artistically. It means, shit, you can make a real living doing what you're passionate about! Which gives me some hope in these cr-azy times. anywho, enough babble.

My favorite piece is that dress the girl is wearing on the very last picture. That would look so great with a golden and big golden necklases legging for Christmass or New Years Eve to match with the fireworks

Hi Tavi!
I can't really say that I "look forward" to antything in the Rodarte/Target collection beacause I live in Sweden and I don't know what Target is and I doubt that those clothes will be available here at all! :( But when I saw your Rodarte-video I fell in love with the mustard cardigan so much! It's so lovely! If it was available to get here I would! That is absolutely my favorite piece from the collection.

heyyy! i'm def most excited about the general girliness of the collection, in particular the lace tights and cardigans which i pretty much want in every colour (mustard would be a good start :P) BUT since i live at the other end of the world (the land of kangaroos and koalas) i can't get them :( sooooooo you're my only hope tavi... please... for the kangas?

I'm excited about the collaboration for so many reasons. You see, when I buy clothing pieces, I tend to dream about the adventures I will have in these clothes, eventhough i've never travelled through Japan and walked by the river of Seine in Paris wering an old lace dress.
But everytime i look at rodartes pieces for target, i keep imagining myself in an old wood cabin, drinking tea and reading really old books, surrounded by old and beautiful things. Since there is alot of snow where i live in the winter, i would be snowed in.
My god, that is a cheezy story, but i am telling the truth.

Maria Tasula said...

Well, I'm excited cause it's HAPPENING + you are part of it!! and I live in Finland so it's really hard for me to get my hands on the pieces.

Cait said...

Tavi, your blog is amazing (though I've always been too shy to comment and say so before)!
I'm particularly excited (as I am every time Target puts out a designer collaboration) that designs by such well-known and talented designers are now available for us plebes...makes me feel a little more special to know that I'm wearing something thought up by Erin Fetherston, for instance.

It's a major cop out but I think my favourite thing has to be the tights because they can be worn with anything and they push my boundaries which very much hover over boring, without being too scary.

confessions of a marc addict. said...

I remember back when brands like Luella and Proenza Schouler had GO International collections at Target. I had never heard of these brands before, yet I loved what I saw from them at Target. Years down the road, I'm seriously considering putting pastel streaks in my hair. I guess that shows the influence and knowledge Target has on what type of lines to carry. I feel Rodarte may be their best decision yet.

I live in a town that certainly has no glimmer of a hope for carrying any sort of designer merchandise, unless you count Juicy Couture track suits worn by wealthy house wives. However, we do have a Super Target. The collaborations with these up and coming (and now, with Rodarte, established) designers have been my chance to connect to and participate in the omnipotent world of fashion. I wore a Tracy Feith for Target dress to my high school graduation. I carried a Hayden-Harnett for Target bag around for a good five months straight.

In reality, even if there was a Saks 5th Avenue a hop, skip and a jump from my bedroom, I wouldn't actually be able to purchase anything they carry there, at least not on a regular basis. So these special collections from Target have been, and will continue being some of the most influential and important pieces I own.

As I am sure you've already gathered, owning a Rodarte for Target piece is something I am desperately hoping for. To be able to hang something in my closet that is the direct result of Laura and Kate Mulleavy's brilliance, would be such an honor.

I like overall the use of laces. I think that putting them in waist height is pretty clever as makes the whole a lot more delicate and playful. I specially liked a little black dress, with a ribbon enclosing the neck, I came across while seeing a slideshow of the collection that slap me in the face with beauty. And the gloves! They are delicately delicious!

The black slip looking dress because I love to wear vintage slips with tights and cardigans and docs! it gets hard to find ones that fit well and do not have holes or huge stains ( i love the character they add but there is a point of no return)

I am excited for a lot of things, but I can't say it all here but here are my favs, Tulle Bow Top in navy, Slip dress in black and Lace Print Dress in Tan. Sadly, I can't buy any of them since we do not have any Target stores here in Malaysia :( Blerghh..

stellagee said...

i'm excited about any collection that provides leopard print and a ribcage for my enjoyment.

Belle said...

I'm most looking forward to telling people I own a Rodarte piece. Seeing there has been no advertisement of the collection here in Australia, my friends wont know its actually just from Target. :D
I mean... I dont plan on deciving people *cough cough*

The piece I have most taken a fancy to is the 'Sequin Dress in gray leopard' because I'm totally a sequin fanatic and the fact that its leopard print is pretty damn awesome.

But I think the Sequin Rib Cage Dress is awesome too, and think it deserves some apreciation because no one has mentioned it and I feel bad for the thing. :(

Fashionnette said...

Why am I excited about Rodarte for Target? Because Rodarte is completely not my style. But I love fashion and I love to play, and somehow I feel that this mustard piece would bring a blast of fresh air into my wardrobe; that it would be THAT missing part to my feel-like-something´s-missing-just-can´t-figure-out-what fashion puzzle game...if it is enough to deserve it :)

Anonymous said...

Damn, I love this collection!
I think that's one of the most exciting collections this year!
I am COMPLETELY in love with the leopard dress, the black lace cardigan and those cute bow belts! I mean, they're just so me! I can't believe it! If I had to design a collection, it would be almost exactly like that!
*sighs* marvellous.

The Rodarte for Target collection continues the aesthetics of the designers' on-going interest in futurism but catered more to a mass market.

Like the designer themselves said they are inspired by movies they remembered and seen as kids so the whole collection had a strong vintage vibes around it. The using of different patches of fabric such as lace and mohair represents the apotheosis of techniques-something of strong Rodarte vibes.

The ad campaign shoot in North Dakota sets the mood for this collaboration. The vast north american landscape which the girls said in the video they did for style;changes the perspective on how they lived.

Extremely wearable and age appropriate for the teen targeted audiences i would expect this collection to be a sell-out.

What excites me most is the return to grunge glam! Girls who get their hands filthy! Girls with dirty secrets! Girls made of hard white skeletons underneath the ribbon and glitter armor!

It's like if 90s Courtney Love, Laura Palmer, Fay Grim, Bonnie Parker and Rosemary Woodhouse got together for a sleepover.

The night would open with a Dario Argento film and our ladies would get in some good screams, a lot of laughing and cursing and a general consensus that Argento girls are to DIE for (they are).
There would be rice krispy treats made from Fruity Pebbles with extra marshmallow and butter so as to be more ooey gooey than brick.
There'd be a game of Truth or Dare and everyone would lie at least 40% of the time, out of necessity or habit.
There'd be drinking, probably a spontaneous drinking contest (Courtney would win for sheer gusto), and in no time everyone would head out to maybe TP the neighborhood or do a little breaking and entering and stargazing. They would jump fences, break glass with leather-gloved fists, climb trees and possibly run from the authorities.

Point being, the morning after, each one would go home wearing a mishmash of everyone's clothing, roughed up, worn and torn just a little from the night's activities.

Ah yeah, give me those bad girls.
Clothing is meant for adventures.

I just want to get that cardigan. I'm excited about that particular piece, yeah. Cause that's the only thing from this collection I actually COULD get my hands on. Cause I'm from Croatia. And that's far far away.

I would wear Jason Schwarzman every day.
Eh, I mean, I really like the light blue dress. It so reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, and so it makes me happy because I can't wait to see thet movie. And I would wear the dress, in the snow (I live in Holland, we have lots of snow right now) without wearing anything else on top of it. And I would wave majestically to all the people that will be looking at me like I'm some sort of crazy person.

Oh those clothes are nice. Zeker weten.
And that video was awesome. So cool.
