If there was ever a true “super” model, it would be Karlie Kloss. Somehow, she found time to collaborate on a collection of sunglasses with Warby Parker. The shapes and styles are mod with a modern twist.

What makes these cool-girl shades even better? A portion of the proceeds goes to Edible Schoolyard NYC, which works with low-income NYC public schools to build kitchens and gardens where they teach students to develop lifelong healthy habits.

Fashion with a great cause backing it up? Another reason to love Kloss even more.

Peter Pilotto for Target

While I normally do not write about designer/Target collabs, when I saw the lookbook for Peter Pilotto for Target I had to throw something out there. Personally, I think that some collabs, like “Designer for Target” or “Designer for H&M” can be a rip off. You might be getting something that looks designer for a fraction of the price, but the quality is very low. As soon as a designer announces a new collaboration, the masses start marking their calenders and taking off of work. While I will not be doing that, I will have to pick up a piece of this collab for myself.

This collection is playful and has numerous great separates that could easily be mixed into an already existing wardrobe. The party dresses all feature unusual, but flattering, shapes with mixed prints that are begging to be worn. Pilotto did an amazing job with this collection considering that it could have gone in the complete opposite direction of chic.

Pilotto announced his collaboration with Target back in September, and the wait was well worth it. According to Huffington Post, the collection will be priced around $60 a piece, which is much better of a price point than previous collections. The collection will be for sale via Target and Net-a-Porter, making it the first collection shoppers can get internationally. Better be ready for February 9th!
