Jean Paul Gaultier for Target
Fashion Week is upon us and yet we are still struggling to make ends meet, even those of us with jobs. For the first time in our lives, for those in Generations X and Y, we truly understand what it means to appreciate having any job. This personal and global credit crunch is just one more reason to bow to the holy gods in Minneapolis, yes the folks at Target that keep us entertained and clothed. Target keeps us satisfied without forcing us to break the bank and disobey Suze Orman‘s rules about living within your means, saving the maximum for retirement, and starting a rainy day savings (~six months of expenses). Start saving, any way you can, even if it is only $20 per paycheck. Try ING since their savings rates are better than the average bank and you won’t be tempted to use it, since there are so few ATMs. In the meantime, we snagged some images of the Jean Paul Gaultier collection for Target.
Spring/Summer Work Attire: Good Girl Gone Bad?
Jean Paul Gaultier at Target. These are words we never imagined in one sentence but fashion does what is must to survive and JPG is not to be questioned. He is among the geniuses, like Karl Lagerfeld, Coco Chanel and Marc Jacobs, the latter of which is Just Saying No to Celebrities. It’s not about the jetsetera, it’s about the clothes, the art…Meanwhile, who will entertain while he continues to start his shows two hours late? But back to JPG.
He has mastered the art of bringing conflicting styles together, making opposites attract-the rough with the romantic. It’s like the first time I saw someone wear an above-the-knee floral print dress with brown, broken in boots, half laced. It was thread love.

Target seems to have made these images and the accompanying press release impossible to find, just hours after I downloaded them in the early hours of the morning. If memory serves well, this collection will be on sale from March 7 through April 11. You know where to go and leave the kids at home. This might get ugly.
