It's no surprise that designer collaborations have become a go-to buzz-creating strategy for brands and retailers, both high and low. And what's better than combining two labels people already know and love, and allowing a luxury brand to reach the masses in a way it probably never would? Plus, the idea of these limited-edition partnerships automatically leads to insane customer demand, with mile-long lines of shoppers camping out, and merchandise inevitably landing on eBay for mind-boggling mark-ups. But every single time we hear of another one coming down the pipeline (like the latest news of Marimekko for Target
and Rodarte for & Other Stories
), we can't help but daydream about the designer team-ups we're still waiting for. (Seriously, how have Alexa Chung and Reformation not
created a line together yet?)
