NEW YORK - They may make an odd couple, but discounter Target and luxury merchant Neiman Marcus are jointly offering a limited collection ranging from fashion to sporting goods for the winter holidays.
More than 50 products from 24 designers, including Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg, will be available at both stores and on their websites starting Dec. 1 until they sell out.
Items in the collection will cost from $7.99 to $499.99, but most will sell for less than $60.
Target pioneered the idea of low-price chains teaming with designers to create limited-time, affordable versions.
It made headlines last fall with the bungled launch of a lower-price collection from Missoni that was so intensely anticipated that Target's website crashed for almost an entire day.
