Target has mastered cheap chic.
Selfridges is just chic.
So when Target sets up a boutique in Selfridges selling the line Alice Temperley designed for their Go International collection, it makes me wonder it they're trying to reach out into a more exclusive market. Perhaps their "fashion for all" philosophy is on its way out?
On a more positive note, perhaps this is Target's first foray into the UK market & the company is positioning itself early so as not to be seen as just another ASDA. I read in the Financial Times that Target has been having troubles with ownership of it's bullseye logo in the UK and Europe. Perhaps the time is ripe for Target to open a shop in London? Watch this space for future developments.

I have a love/hate relationship with Primark, love because I love cheap trendy clothes, hate because I hate myself when I buy cheap disposable clothes made by exploited workers in third world countries.
This is a typical shopping day at Primark, Mare Street. Need I say more?
365-371 Mare Street

This sign graces the doors of all four shopping malls that make up the mall at Canary Wharf. It's a WiFi zone; good that seems progressive. No rollerskating or smoking is allowed; that makes sense. What about the other symbol? No hard hats? No site clothing? Am I the only one who thinks this is horribly classist? Shame on you Canary Wharf!
