I read an interesting article the other day that decried the popularization of designer collaborations with high-street retailers and claimed that “fashion” has become philistine and too accessible.


I am personally a fan of designer collaborations and look forward to the abundance of cheap(er) and eclectic collections slated to hit shelves in the coming months (in particular the Forever 21 x Hello Kitty and Target/Neiman Marcus collaborations). 

Disregarding the debate we could be having about fast fashion and the waste it leaves in its path, what are your thoughts on mass-market retailer and premier designer partnerships?
