“Patrick who?,” you might ask—and understandably so. Patrick “What’s-His-Name” Robinson has Target’s next GO Interntional line ready to, well, go, though he’s not one of the most well-known faces in the big fashion world.
According to a little research on FashionOffice.org, we learned that Robinson went to Parsons School of Design in Paris and New York and worked as design director for Giorgio Armani in Milan and creative director of Anne Klein in the early ’90s. He then started up his own self-titled line, but continued to work as the creative director of Perry Ellis and most recently, Paco Rabanne.
The Target-specific line screams summer with light fabrics like twill and linen and wide-knit crochet pieces. Medallion and rosette prints take center stage, though this time around, in natural shades like muted browns and soft pinks. Though most of the separates seem day-inspired, many pieces look ready to shift into night- or even office-wear like a Poet Blouse and khaki Linen Jacket. Also be prepared for lots of gauzy sundresses, brown-toned swimsuits, and of course, sunshine come May, when the line is said to hit the shelves.
Though it’s always a bit of a guessing game, we’ll do our best to keep you posted.
