Breaking down the mass-retailer designer collaborations for the season!

1) Behnaz Sarafpour for GO International at Target: Predominantly lace-trimmed, youthful and sophisticated clothes, from cardigans and tees to skirts and bags. All in all, a pretty decent affair. But I'm still more excited for the Proenza Schouler collection coming early next spring.

2) Viktor & Rolf ♥ H&M: Slick collection for men and women, with dressier work-appropriate attire - think blouses and suits, dresses and shoes, all with the same romantic aplomb and slightly quirky details typical of Viktor & Rolf. The wedding dress is of particular note (and only $350!)

3) Roland Mouret for Gap: Ten plain dresses. Yay. But really, the three red dresses support the (RED) initiative, so that's all for a good cause. They're very basic, very simple and clean, very watered-down Roland Mouret.

4) Rafe for Target: Horrifically cheap looking PVC bogs down these otherwise wonderful accessories. The clutch isn't bad, but the scale of the big totes just emphasize the low-grade material.
