We are always on the lookout to share Target’s best designer collaborations and this summer’s Calypso collaboration is one of the most anticipated yet. I have been dying for this collection to be released to Target stores across the country, and I was not disappointed. The Calypso collection is one of the most extensive and largest collaborations I have ever seen at Target. It features clothing, accessories, shoes, bathing suits, intimates, jewelry, clothes for girls and babies, bedding, housewares, furniture, dishes, and outdoor decor. Every department I ventured into had some sort of Calypso extension. And to top it off, its all available online!!
Divided into three sub-collections, you can shop the specific collection that works for your style. The Shore collection features the more neutral looks and has the feeling of a sandy beach, the Reef collection (my favorite) is bright, fun, and is mostly made up of dresses and bedding that are coral or pink, and the Sea collection, made up of mostly blue, has the breezy and serene feeling of the ocean.
The line has the classic Calypso style that will make you feel like you’re on an exotic island even when you’re just lounging at a backyard pool. Now, I can’t give everything a glowing review because there were some misses…I would stay away from the tie-dye print, the maxi dresses felt like very poor quality, and some of the housewares might only work if you’re having a theme party.
My top picks…the Linen Tote for the beach, this khaki shift dress with neon beading, these chic decorative pillows for an outdoor patio, this breezy tunic, this clutch would make an adorable makeup bag, and this candle smelled amazing!
So, trust me, take a few minutes out of your day to check this out before all the goodies are gone…and if you shop in-store, make sure you pick up a cart, because you will fill it with all tons of fabulous Calypso pieces for less!
