Designer Crush-Calypso St. Barth for Target

by Shelly

I guess I’ve been living under a rock again (or the weight of a huge demo project-ha!), because I just became aware of a new Target designer collaboration debuting May 1st.  Calypso St. Barth!   I have LONG been a fan of the line and every time warm weather rolls around I seem to sneak a few more pieces into my wardrobe.  The collection will feature a little bit of everything.  There will be clothing and accessories for women and children.  And home goods with glassware, candles, and pillows!

After taking a peek at the line I will say that some of the items look…well…a little dated.  I’m getting a bad early 90s beach house rental vibe from some of the items.  And since I live in a beach community I have a little bit of knowledge about this…. some of the goods border line with things I’ve seen at the beach souvenir store in Seal Beach down the street.  *sad but true*  But with that being said there ARE some cute pieces.  Here are some things that caught my eye.

And for the little fashionistas… I think our almost 4 year old will have to sport some of these looks this summer!

The home collection has some super cute items at a fabulous price point! The poofs are to DIE for!  I may have to stock up for myself and for my clients.

{Red?}

{Or blue?  I like blue.}

{Just the perfect touch of summer for your sofa!}

{Come to Momma!}

{These pierced silver candle holders would be stunning on a outdoor dining table!}

{Exotic, colorful glass vases. PRETTY!}

{Perfect to hold a big, fruit salad or yummy fresh grilled corn at a bbq.}

Head over to Target May 1st to grab some of these cute things for summer!  I will be!

I hadn’t heard of this collection either, thanks for the heads up! These designer collaboration lines are always hit and miss for me. Sometimes I feel like the items are great, but other times (like with the John Derian) I can’t help but think “cheap knock off” or “past it’s prime.” I’m in love with the elephant tea pots and the pierced silver candle holders you’ve shown here though. Used sparingly I think they would look great in a room.
