Mulberry for Target

I'm sure a lot of your know about the collaboration with Mulberry and Target coming this fall, and I'm sure you also knew about the debut of the line on Gilt today, what I bet you didn't know... it sold out in less than ONE minute! WTF. I set my alarm to 5:45am, just so I wouldn't miss it.  I sat there sleepy eyed, gazing at my computer and once 6am hit and I clicked on the sale, AND the whole Mulberry for Target items were SOLD OUT.  I'm not too disappointed that I didn't get anything, I'm more upset that I woke up early for nothing  (I am not a morning person). I wasn't too impressed with the collaboration.  I'm not a huge fan of patent leather.  Hopefully the other pieces (I think there are 8 total), will be better.  Any of you able to snatch a couple pieces??


Love, S

I was completely blown by that too, I thought, huh, I clicked on here at noon (ET). The only one I really like was the black patent leather, but I definitely don't need another black bag. Oh well, might have to wait until the 29th (unless that's all there is of the collection).
Sorry you didn't score anything and your sleep was interrupted. :(

I can't believe it sold out in a minute! That's crazy, even for Gilt!

Those bags are all quite nice, but like you say don't really excite me. I don't think we have a Target in the UK or am I just well behind he times? xx

Wow, holy demand. The bags are nice but I don't see what the big fuss is about. I like me some patent leather, but really only when it's all patent and is yummy colors and not just black and navy. Oh well, there are more bags to be had!

Oh yea, the same thing happened to me too. I was lucky enough to be able to log in just before 12 EST, but EVERYTHING, I repeat.. EVERYTHING was sold out in no time. Geez Louise... But I'm glad I didn't get any of them. They look pretty cheap (the patent leather threw me off) and somewhat like... Juicy Couture? But anyways, better luck next time! :)

It's not actually leather is it? I saw the prices and at that price... if it was leather, any kind of bag would be an absolute steal. I actually think patent leather can look really classy... :( but I digress haha. I'm sure you will be able to get your hands on it when it goes to target (assuming you have one in hawaii?)!

have a great weekend Sharon!!

Oh man, I feel ya, I can't believe how quickly it sold out. I clicked on the site and it was all gone!! omg! Anyway, sorry you had to wake up so early:( I'm not a morning person either, so I know how you feel. I somewhat liked the blue satchels, but the black version was just ok. Hopefully, we'll have better luck on the official launch:) Have a great weekend!

That is crazy!! I can't believe it sold out that fast!! I may check out the other line but nothing really looks that exciting!

this free bird said...

that's such a pisser. i don't like getting up early either and totally did so on 4 hours sleep only to get my internet hairs pulled out by 70000000000000 other people who decided to beat me down at the tucker sale. i did manage to score 2 dresses after hitting refresh, oh, 10 BILLION times.

seriously. how can everything be sold out when you click open on the page at the exact moment the sale starts???

I WANT AN ANSWER.

i'm sorry for your loss (of sleep). they can suck it.

I like the first handbag, but like you, patent leather just isn't my thing. It's cool though that Target's collaborating with them.

I hope you have a great, great weekend, S! What are your plans? I'm hanging out with Jeremiah tonight, and we're finishing up our move :) Have a good one, and give my regards to E!

Alice said...

Wow, I can't believe it went out that fast!

I was a little sad b/c the bags were so cute, but that's okay, for those of us that wasn't able to get a hold of those bags will have to wait it comes out in the fall. :(

Michelle Elaine said...

i wasnt that impressed - i guess i had super high expectations :/

Didn't snatch up any pieces. Didn't plan to.

I'm just gonna wait til they release in stores.

I actually like the denim/patent leather satchel.

It's the closest thing I'll ever get to owning a Mulberry bag. haha. I just hope that my local Target or a Target close to my city will have this collection in stock.
