Bridging the Gap between the affordable and the aspirational, the Gap has done it again! Remember last year's collaboration with Rodarte, Thakoon and Doo Ri? This time they've tapped CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners, Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, Michael Bastian, and ThreeASFOUR, to redesign the classic white button down shirt.

Philip Crangi (shout out to RISD!) will create jewelry for the collection. The limited edition-reinterpreted shirts will range from $78.00 to $88.00 and Crangi's jewelry is priced at $45.00. These soon-to-be classics will become available April 15. Read the official press release here.

Incidentally, the ad campaign features many of these women (Chanel Iman, Du Juan, Doutzen Kroes, Jessica Stam, Lily Donaldson, Catherine McNeil, Anya Rubik and Irina Lazarean)-- who posed for the cover of Vogue wearing shirts from last year's campaign.

Next up in the celebrity designer series? According to the rumor mill, Katie Holmes will launch a line for Armani! She will, allegedly, make her design debut in 2009, starting with children's clothes, and will work her way up to women's apparel and accessories by 2010.

Apparently, the line will be carried by Saks, Barney’s, and Neiman Marcus. Of course, this might all be conjecture, speculation and/or wishful thinking.

I'm only writing about it because I love Katie's style--as of late--and am interested in seeing how she fares amongst her celeb-designing counterparts (Sienna, Kate, Sarah Jessica and Posh come to mind)...not to mention, it would be Armani! Read her publicist's denial of the collaboration here.

Fusing the philosophies "more is more" and "less is more", Justin Giunta has created a line which, in his own words, "draw[s] parallels between art history and modern design to explore themes of fine art and commercial design".

Ranging from $14.99 to $59.99, Giunta's Subversive for Target jewelry line is a steal! The designer--who was recently chosen as a CFDA/Vogue fashion fund finalist and winner of Ecco Domani's Fashion Foundation accesories prize--has experience in painting, fashion, industrial design, and is now dabbling in jewelry!

Models Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk prove that they are more than just pretty faces-- they formed their eponymous line Jovovich-Hawk in 2003. Now the designers' limited edition collection marks Target's 10th in their Go International series--a portion of which is shown above! Flirty florals with a vintage feel echoes the designers' mantra: "feel good, look great, feel bad, look great". The collection is right on time for spring! View all of the pieces here.

"Wholistic, lush, simple." I couldn't have said it better myself. Check out this fab collection of scarves from Miss Bruno! Simply breathtaking. The photography alone is awe inspiring--the artistry serves as a most appropriate backdrop for the scarves--don't you think?

"We make handmade originals for sustainable living and other unassuming revolutions."- Miss Bruno

I think these scarves are museum worthy--Met Costume Institute bound! They will add a certain je ne sais quoi to any outfit. Try as I might, and as much as I write about fashion, I'm not the most adventurous when it comes to clothes--though I have an affinity for ruffles--so, i'll probably pair one of these with jeans and a white tee, but I'm sure the impact will be almost coutoure, right?

Hurry up and get your own scarf at; view their myspace page for additional information. I have a sneaking suspicion that these remarkable pieces will soon be in short supply! Next on deck? My so-called Dress, a collection of one-of-kind dresses and unisex pieces with fresh and simple silhouettes and haute couture details. I can't wait to see!
