The biggest story of the day—the launch of the Missoni for Target collaboration online and nationwide—is turning into the biggest palaver of the day, with the website and the mobile website crashing over and over again, mostly due to too many people connecting at once.
In situations like these, may we advocate going low-tech? Here's how to get first-dibs on your most-coveted Missoni for Target pieces: surf on over to our complete Missoni for Target lookbook, which features every single one of the 400+ collaboration pieces. Pick out what you want and then call 1-877-848-4483, which is the 24/7 Target.com order-by-phone hotline. Easy peasy.
UPDATE 2:25 P.M.: A Racked tipster says that right now it's taking about 7 minutes to reach a real live human being on the phone at the above number and, after getting through, was told that no phone orders for anything—Missoni or otherwise—can be placed right now over the phone. Sounds like the entire Target system is down at Target HQ to us. Our tipster writes: "I was told to call back in a few hours."
