And Target does it again; a new collaboration, with a new collection. This time Target hits a little closer to home – Canadian soil to be specific. Sarah Stevenson, winner of the “Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels Competition”, was presented the opportunity to design an exclusive clothing line for the giant department store. Although very similar to its predecessor collection, Peter Pilotto, Sarah Stevenson takes classic styles and gives them a modern twist. Sarah Stevenson used her fashion background towards her new line, which highlights opulent fabrics, ornate floral patterns, and feminine cuts. Inspired by her environment, Sarah blends youthful and romantic characteristics into one exquisite collection, limited to Target. The collection is available now in select stores across Canada.
I have put together a couple outfits with some of my favourite Sarah Stevenson pieces to give you a closer look at the fashion line:
1. Printed Placket & Collar Blouse and Oxford Blue Satin Pants:
A great workday outfit for any business professional. What I love most about this top is its simplicity, with just a little touch of flair along the collar, sleeves, and front closure. The pop of colour against the white canvas brings excitement to an ordinary staple outfit. Plus, the satin of these oxford blue pants feel amazing against the skin; after a long day’s work, you can’t help but keep them on for your night-out activities.
2. Chiffon Floral Button Up Blouse:
This girly button up blouse is fun, bright, and best of all, comfortable! The peplum flare of the top helps hide problem areas and draws the eyes to natural waistline. Fit for any body type, this top will make a flattering addition to any wardrobe. I paired this blouse with a pair of white jeans to bring out the rich hues of the florals. This outfit is perfect for a cool spring afternoon.
3. Watercolour Peplum Dress:
Another one of Sarah Stevenson’s basic pieces that feature a splash of multicoloured botanics. The details along the collar, waist and front closure are decorative, without going over the top. I can picture myself wearing this dress in the office on a hot spring/ summer day; fashionable, vibrant, and striking – what more can a girl ask for!
4. Ombre Watercolour Blazer:
This ombre watercolour blazer is hands-down my favourite item of the entire collection. This item was so popular, that it sold out by the time I reached my closest Target location. Luckily there was one left in the change room put-backs pile – in my size too (it was a sign from above). I wanted this structured piece to speak for itself, so I paired it with a simple black tank top and leggings.
5. Watercolour Red Hot Combo Pull-on Pants:
Extremely trendy for this upcoming spring season are the eclectic printed trouser-type pant. It is no wonder Sarah Stevenson would include them in her new collection. This red watercoloured pull-on pant is comfortable and easy to wear. Paired with a basic black or white t-shirt, this outfit prepares you for an enjoyable day out-on-the-town.
