Now that the Jovovich-Hawk for Target collection is set to release in March, in the interim Target announces its latest collaboration with Converse to offer One Star vintage inspired lifestyle apparel and footwear exclusively at Target beginning in February 2008. The One Star collection, offers exclusive lifestyle and vintage inspired contemporary sportswear collections for men and women, including denim, non-denim bottoms, knits, wovens, graphic tees, sweaters, dresses and outerwear. One Star footwear includes exclusive and limited edition product for men, women, and children.

For Target, the One Star collection focuses on the tension between classic sportswear and vintage athletic influences, juxtaposing track pants with tailored, rumpled oxfords. The collection consists of conventionally performance-based pieces with a modern aesthetic, resulting in everyday looks in wearable fabrics and stylish silhouettes.

One Star apparel presents a complete range of separates, including vintage-inspired denim, lightweight knitwear, graphic tees, polos, feminine dresses and contemporary outerwear, and updates it by incorporating unexpected stripes, metallics and pastel prints for spring. The One Star footwear collection draws inspiration from a century of heritage and includes limited-edition screen prints and color ways for men, women and kids. Each item in the collection boasts well-considered “hidden surprises” such as distinctive catch-phrases that read “Inspire Originality” and “Be Your Own,” adding authenticity to each design and creating value for Target guests.

Do you like any of this?

Forgot to give my own thoughts, I’m not really feelin’ this collection. The only thing I might consider buying are the Glitter Skimmers, but I’d have to see them in person first. This collection is not really my style, which is a good thing since I need to closet diet haha.

For women, traditional athletic pieces are updated with eye-catching details such as beading, sequins and metallics, taking a typically masculine silhouette and making it ultra-modern and feminine. Iconic eyelet grommets and half-moon details adorn pieces in the collection, calling attention to the brand’s signature style and vintage vibe. Varsity jackets, knit jersey tanks and fitted Henleys cater to the easygoing tomboy while A-line tunics and lace-trim camisoles in flirty fabrics and subdued shades appeal to the style-conscious woman. For summer, mixing the shine of silk with matte jersey fabrics on everyday pieces creates exciting ways to dress up a weary wardrobe. Dresses are beautifully detailed with twill taping and cinched waists, and allow greater versatility between work and weekend when worn alone or over fitted jeans. The One Star footwear collection offers women a variety of fabulous options – from preppy oxfords in must-have colors and polka-dots, to skimmers in shiny metallics and floral prints. The line also offers the basic court sneaker in white leather, and flip-flops in eye-popping hues that are perfect for warmer weather.
