The Target x Neiman Marcus holiday collaboration debuted to lack luster crowds. And now the items are marked down 50% off. Racked reported that Madison Avenue Spy spotted the collection on sale on a recent trip to Target. She added that what was left wasn't going fast and that three items had completely sold out: the Rodarte wrapping paper, the DVF yoga mat and the Tory Burch thermos.
So is this discounting of a holiday collection normal post holiday protocol or a sign that designer collaborations' moment has past? Madison Avenue Spy added another detail that points to the latter: "While one might say that it's timely to slash the prices on items such as Jason Wu Christmas tree ornaments and Band of Outsider cookie cutters, we found that other seasonal items in Target to only be discounted 30% off."
