Altuzarra for Target
Get ready for high slits coming to a Target near you. Altuzarra’s collection for Target drops in two weeks. The French fashion luxury brand is known for merging femininity, sophistication and practicality. Although the designer isn’t well known throughout the country, we bet that luxury shoppers will be excited to grab one of the many high-slit designs. You can click here to see the entire lookbook. Remember, the farther away you get from Manhattan the better luck you’ll have at snagging the most coveted items. Our favorite local Target location is Jersey City.
