Rodarte’s Target collection doesn’t hit stores until December 20, but Target already hosted an editor’s preview of the line. When images from that event leaked on Twitter, Target — which doesn’t enjoy when images are leaked before they decide to release them — swiftly got them taken down from there and numerous blogs that had picked them up. But try as they might, they can’t control the Internet, or the naughty editors who attended the preview, because one attendee recently put a lace blouse from the collection up for sale on eBay. According to the description, it was a gift from the event. The item only received two bids, and closed at $10.49, though you’d think it would go for an astronomical sum like past diffusion-line items to hit the site did. (The full collection ranges from $9.99 for knee-highs to $79.99 for a leopard-print jacket, so it really should have gone for more, regardless.) Even though the auction’s over, it at least provides another tiny glimpse at the line.
