Missoni for Target, the long awaited collaboration between the legendary Italian fashion house and the nation’s second-largest/first-hippest big box store, made its online debut Tuesday. Folks everywhere logged in for steals on clothes, accessories, bikes and housewares in chic, bold retro-style patterns, causing the Target site to crash multiple times throughout the day.
In a statement, the Minnesota-based retailer said “Target.com is seeing greater item demand than we do on a typical Black Friday, and the excitement for this limited-time designer collection is unprecedented. We are slowly bringing the site back online to ensure we can provide a positive shopping experience to our guests.”
Shoppers packed physical stores across the country to scoop up Missoni deals as well. According to CNN, a scarf from the label can typically run you about $200; the Target line is priced between $3 and $600 (the most expensive items are furniture pieces) and the average piece runs about $40.
