Sam & Libby shoe via DSW
Target has announced an exclusive partnership with Sam & Libby, the 25-year-old lower-priced offshoot of trend star Sam Edelman. Previously the line was sold at DSW and JC Penney, but, in general, the styles there leave something to be wanted (the DSW option to the right is arguably the most wearable). Now, the same parent company that owns Sam Edelman footwear bought the diffusion brand, reunited it with its original designer, and sold it to the master of fast fashion "designer" offerings, aka Target.
The line will feature 20 styles of contemporary women's footwear with "elevated design details" (Read: Makeover), beginning at the $24.99 price point. Find the collection beginning May 5 of next year at all Target stores, with an expanded color range on Target.com.
