"But what's really drawing fashion followers to Lim's line for Target?" One word: Affordability.
While a Pashli bag from Phillip Lim's designer collection retails at $1000, a similar bag from the designer's capsule collection with budget-friendly Target will set stylistas between $35-$60.

The perfect collection for the quirky, girl-about-work who vacations in Italy, its marked with pop art imagery on retro sweatshirts, peplum tops, smart knee-length dresses, tailored trousers, light weight buttoned blousons, bags galore, and much more.
While Racked LA live tweeted and indeed confirmed bags were the first items to go--even leading to shoppers exchanging grabbed merchandise in an unheard moment of sanity, the line is still heavily stocked at Target.com.
Hmm: Could the full shelves have something to do with Target's weird designer conundrum where despite nabbing an of-the-moment designer to (re)create a stellar collection the clothing falls short in terms of construction?
Some fans are alluding towards a resounding 'yes.'
@TiffanyLD: Disappointed in the Phillip Lim Target collection. Looked not so great in person. Not a single piece that looked nice enough to grab :/
Oh, Target: Allowing America's defunct middle class to live the illusion of the American Dream through one capsule collection at a time.
