DALLAS, Apr 3, 2008 / FW/ — For his farewell collection at Target, Isaac Mizrahi created timeless staples that are fashion-forward and unpredictable. From suit separates to trousers and jackets, these versatile pieces are meant for the everyday woman’s wardrobe.

Boot-cut denim trousers, cropped metallic jackets and seersucker dresses with grosgrain detailing, a toile-print coat in silver and a swing trench in khaki, Isaac Mizrahi made sure that a woman has everything in her closet for everyday occasions.

With unexpected accents like bows incorporated into pleats on an A-line skirt or a crew-neck tank covered in sequins, simple silhouettes were modernized, even made avant-garde.

Dresses remain a significant trend for spring and transition effortlessly from day to night. This season’s must-haves are fashionable and fun, including a 3/4-sleeve black-and-white leaf-print tunic, an Indian-inspired fuchsia V-neck dress with gold detailing and an embellished white shift dress with pompoms on the hem.

Whether its in color block of navy, light blue and green or done in floral prints, the wrap dress is a must-have for both city and country living.

Mizrahi did not forget accessories. With the assortment of handbags, shoes and sunglasses, every look is stylishly finished off. Whether trendy and adventurous or traditional and subdued, any fashion personality can customize her ensemble with items such as a leather metallic silver clutch, vibrant yellow shoulder bag with patent straps or black and white tote with gold accoutrements.

Updated shoe classics include a loafer with tassel detail in solid white or yellow and a metallic ballet flat in silver. For a more up-to-the minute look, metallic t-strap sandals in silver or bronze can be paired with a casual dress or dressy trousers.

The whole Isaac Mizrahi for Target collection is available in all Target locations nationwide and online at Spring 2008 is Mr. Mizrahi’s farewell collection for Target. The award-winning designer has accepted a post at Liz Claiborne, and thus his collaboration with Target because of that commitment.
