Target's Fall Designer Collab Is Its Best Yet, so We Tried It

When my fellow editors and I found out that Target was dropping its designer collection again for the fall season, we knew we had to do another group try-on. Summer is great, but there's something about fall in the sartorial world that brings additional excitement. Between the colorful knits, classic coats, and cozy furs, what's not to love? This time, Target partnered with fashion favorites Sandy Liang, Victor Glemaud, Nili Lotan, and Rachel Comey. I've talked about my affection for Target plenty on this site, and the fact of the matter is that the retailer never disappoints.

With Sandy Liang's cool-girl staples and Victor Glemaud's standout knits, you're going to have a hard time choosing just one piece from this collection. Almost everything falls in the $50-and-under ballpark and is available in sizes XXS–4X. So allow us to make your shopping prospects a little bit easier, and keep scrolling to check out each of our favorite pieces from the collection and learn why we love them. The designer collection is now available to shop in select stores and at Target.com.

"I have been a long-time fan of Victor Glemaud's colorful knitwear, so when I heard he was doing a Target collection, I begged my fellow editors to set up a try-on series. Picking one piece was challenging, but I landed on this stunning slime-green knit dress, and I don't regret it at all. It's such a high-quality knit considering how affordable it is, and it's so comfortable. I can see myself styling it so many different ways, like with knee-highs and a trench coat or even with cowboy boots. But possibly my favorite thing about this dress is the color! After a hard couple of years, embracing a bold, saturated shade is the perfect way to bring a little joy back into getting dressed. " — Jasmine Fox-Suliaman, Audience Engagement Editor

"I decided to make it easy, and I chose an outfit from the lookbook. I went with the brown faux-fur hoodie and the olive-green quilted joggers designed by Sandy Liang. In the future (i.e., when it's cold enough), I imagine I'll wear this outfit with chunky boots to really complete the look. The two pieces look so cool together, but I also can't wait to wear the jacket (which is super soft and looks and feels so expensive) with jeans and the joggers (which are also so comfortable and perfect) with New Balance sneakers." — Alyson Payer, Senior Editor

"Target seriously popped off with this fall collection, and this knit set made in collaboration with Victor Glemaud is all the proof you need. It has all the makings of luxury at an under-$100 price point. Glemaud is known for his fun knits, and after his runway debut at NYFW this season, I had high hopes for his collection with Target and was not left disappointed. This color screams, 'Barney, but make it fashion,' and I'm totally okay with that. Bring on all the saturated shades for fall." — Yusra Siddiqui, Assistant Market Editor

"Target does it again! I cannot speak more highly about this pullover and these pants. The quality is amazing, and they really nailed the fit. Sandy Liang has been a favorite of mine since the beginning, so it was a treat to wear something of hers at such an accessible price point. Sometimes with mainstream designer collabs, the end result feels like a weak dilution of the real thing, but to me, both of these pieces stay true to the original Sandy Liang aesthetic. The pullover is cropped, so it's not just a big shapeless mass over your top half. And it's also extremely warm! I chose to style it with Salomon sneakers (my everyday shoe right now) and the green cargo pants from the same collection. They're a mid-rise fit, so they don't align with my high-rise–only policy, but I can make an exception." — Indya Brown, Market Editor

"How cool is this print? I fell in love with the swirl-print set from Rachel Comey's collection as soon as I saw a glimpse of Target's latest slew of designer collabs. The material is definitely on the stretchy side, so both pieces are next-level comfortable. (Yes, the skirt also features an elastic waistband.) Although I normally shy away from bold prints and colors, I found this duo to be surprisingly easy to style since the pattern features cream and black, which pair well with all my neutral accessories. Rachel Comey is synonymous with an offbeat and artsy aesthetic, and both of these pieces really speak to that. In other words, I'd never have guessed they each ring up for just $30. Well played, Target." — Anna LaPlaca, Editor

"Cable-knit sweaters are one of the fall trends I've been most excited to slip into, and this style from Nili Lotan is a dream. I tend to be hesitant about knits since they can be itchy sometimes, but this crew-neck is as soft as a cloud." — Kristen Nichols, Senior Editor
