Anna Sui’s new Gossip Girl inspired line for Target debuts September 13th-October 17th. The look book for line leaked this week & Target has grouped the designs together by Gossip Girl character.
From Daily News:
“I love the punk-rock style of Jenny,” the designer admitted at ACRIA’s “Unframed” event. “And she has the bangs, just like me! I relate to her style most [because] I was the Brooklyn girl in high school.”
And while Sui may not relate to Blake Lively’s Serena character or Leighton Meester’s Blair Waldorf, she offers, “Blair is very girly and has very girly clothes. That’s very much like my line as well.”
The collection, available in the fall, is the first discount line for the A-list fashion guru. Is the career move from chic to cheap a sellout?
“I don’t think so,” says Sui. “My line is now going to be available to girls all over and at a price people can easily afford. I think it’s a really good thing, especially with what’s going on in the economy.”
