Our Dream Target Collaborations Come to Life: See the Illustrations!

It’s no secret that Target collaborations garner a lot of buzz. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that most recently, it was Lilly Pulitzer for Target that sold out instantly—going on eBay for more than double the price in some instances. While we’ve loved all the collaborations to date, each in their own way, they got us thinking: What if we could choose the next one? 

And choose we did! While we don’t know how much actual impact our dream collaborations will have on Target’s next move, we had the amazingly talented Laura Kay of Diary Sketches illustrate them anyway!

Scroll through to see each of our editors’ dream Target collaborations brought to life! 

“Boho? Budget? Breezy? Bags? Boots? You feel me? If Chloé and Target did a collab, I'd be able to dress like the ultimate bohemian babe without going broke (well, too broke). In my dream world, it'd launch around springtime so I could frolic around in the breezy dresses but also stock up on staples like ankle boots and a cross-body bag for fall.

If the collab went my way, I'd make sure to include a version of this gorgeous spaghetti strap gown. I wouldn't be mad at a Drew bag either!” –Michelle Scanga, Editor

“I'm dying to see a Marni collaboration at Target. While the Italian brand has never made anything I didn't absolutely love, I think I'd be most excited to shop their iconic loafers and pumps. That flared heel is unmistakable!” –Meghan Blalock, Managing Editor

“Can you even imagine an affordable Prada line? Heaven. While the thought of getting my hands on any signature Miuccia Prada silhouette is epic, the shoe offering is what I'd be most excited about—those irreverent, quirky, but forward-feeling heels and flats for a fraction of the price? Done.” –Bobby Scheussler, Senior Editor

“I would kill for an affordable evening coat from The Row. I'd wear it everywhere. I would sleep in it.” –Nicole Kliest, Style Director

“ I would be the happiest person ever if Preen did a line for Target. Their prints and silks are to die for and every season I grow more and more obsessed with their dresses! They’re the perfect combination of feminine and cool." –Nicole Akhtarzad, Associate Style Editor

“Since I have yet to figure out a way to buy their $800 sandals, I would totally camp out for a Gianvito Rossi x Target collaboration. While all their shoes are incredible, their sandals especially are the perfect blend of cool and alluring.” –Kat Collings, Editorial Director

“I would love a Balenciaga x Target collaboration that covers their greatest hits--under Nicolas Ghesquiere and now under Alexander Wang, the brand's strange union of classic shapes and futuristic detail has always appealed to me. I would love it if they recreated one of those crazy, colourful architectural dresses—I’m not even a dress person, but who wouldn't want to rock that for day?” –Jessica Schiffer, Fashion Features Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
