Colombian designer Vargas, American designer Hudson, and apparel brand La Ligne were named Target’s latest designer partners Tuesday. The brands’ collections for the Minnesota-based mass retailer are set to roll out Oct. 9, with over 100 accessory and apparel items total priced between $8 and $70.

Target’s designer collaborations, which offer designer goods at a substantially lower price point, are always talked-about and much anticipated by the consumer. Recent years have seen the mass retailer partner with a number of designers or brands in a season, rather than one label in particular. Last year’s round-up included Victor Glemaud, Nili Lotan, Rachel Comey and Sandy Liang, while in 2020, it partnered with Christopher John Rogers and LoveShackFancy.
