Breaking! Target Announces Jonathan Saunders the 13th Go International Designer

Target today announced its selection of Jonathan Saunders as the 13th Go International limited edition designer (confirming months of speculation, after it was reported in WWD in January). Saunders' exclusive collection will launch nationwide at Target stores and online in early October.

While Saunders may not be a household name yet, the British designer was just tapped Creative Director of Pollini and chances are quite good that by the time he's completed his stint at Target he will be (remember Patrick Robinson and Erin Fetherston? They weren't exactly widely known and it's a pretty safe bet to say the Go Collections provided invaluable exposure).

Images of the collection will be available over the summer...stay tuned!
