Target's design collaborations always garner a tremendous amount of buzz, and its latest partnering will be no exception. The retailer announced today it is joining forces with American label Altuzarra for a limited-edition capsule collection that's due to hit stores this fall.

“I’ve admired the elegance that Target brings to fast fashion. By working together on this capsule collection, we hope to instill a sense of power, confidence and beauty in women everywhere,” Altuzarra said in a statement. Coming September 14, the line will boast versions of Altuzarra's signature pieces, as well as looks created specifically for the collaboration. The 50-piece range prices apparel and lingerie from $17.99 to $89.99, with shoes and accessories ringing in from $29.99 to $79.99.

Net-a-Porter is also getting in on the fun, as both they and Target will carry the collection on their respective websites.

It sounds like this collection will be in a similar format as last year's hit with Phillip Lim. Although I'm sure it might sting a little for some editors and die-hard fashionistas to see the Altuzarra-proper pieces they spent a lot of money on recreated into less-expensive clones, it will be interesting to see which looks he brings out for this offering.
