What Is It?

Target has teamed up with fashion and beauty expert, Kahlana Barfield Brown for the retailer’s newest brand, Future Collective — a collection designed in partnership with influencers.

Ever since Kahlana was five years old, she’s been enamored with fashion. “I would take little tank tops that went under our shirts and tie them up to make them into a skirt,” she laughs. “I just wanted to be creative in the way that I approached fashion and I always felt like I saw it through a very unique lens.” She inherited her love of fashion from her grandmother and since then has soaked up all her lessons becoming a style icon in her own right. Now everyone can shop pieces that have her influence weft all throughout.

This first drop is a capsule of elevated basics filled with statement pants, structured denim, classic button downs, blazers and more that resonate with Kahlana’s personal style. However, there is something that caters to everyone. “If you’re a girl who likes prints and patterns, we got you. If you like solids, we got you too.”

The collection is also available in a variety sizes ranging from XS through 4X. “We know that a lot of designers stop at a size 10, but this is for everyone to shop and find something for them.”

Yes, you absolutely need it.

If Kahlana had to choose one hero piece from the collection, it would be one of her personal staples: the denim jacket.

“I love it because it’s the perfect shade of denim. [It’s] not too light and not too dark with an interesting silhouette.”

Regardless of what you add to your cart, rest assured that there were no corners cut when it comes to the quality of these pieces. So if you need to hear me say it one more time: Yes, you absolutely need this.

What Are People Saying?

After the announcement fans went to Twitter to share their excitement about the collaboration (much to their bank accounts dismay).

How Do I Get It?

Prices for the collection range from $16 to $70 with most items being under $35. I bought four pieces for a little over $150, so it’s absolutely affordable. You can shop the full assortment online or at Target stores nationwide.
