I remember being at Target (completely on accident) the day the Hunter collection dropped in-stores and being blown away by how quickly the line had sold out. There were a couple left-over pairs of boots and a few other random pieces still available but, for the most part, the 30+ shoppers milling about the Hunter display were met by empty shelves.
I’m guessing that scene will be nothing compared to September 14: the day the 20th Anniversary of the Design For All collection drops in stores and online. The collection showcases 20 of the 175+ iconic designer collaborations we’ve seen since “Design For All” debuted in 1999 with a collection from Michael Graves. (See all 20 of the returning designers here.)
Target is also releasing a book and a documentary film to commemorate the occasion.
This archive collection of nearly 300 items will be released in all stores, although the assortment/designers available at each store will vary. We’ll see items in the apparel, accessories, home decor and kitchen essentials categories. Quantities are limited and (like that original Hunter collection I mentioned above) items are expected to sell out F-A-S-T.
Scroll down for the 7 anniversary collection pieces I’m most excited to see making a comeback. Or, shop the full collection here.

I’m part of the lululemon collective and will receive a commission if you make a purchase through the links below.
Here are my favorites from this week’s new product drop:
Keep Cruising Jumpsuit *Online Only in Black AND Steam Blue (bc I can’t choose just one): I love a good jumpsuit and lululemon does them well! This has an open back, side slits on the leg and an elastic, defined waist. Plus, just like most of their gear, this is made from a sweat-wicking & four-way stretch material.
Everywhere Belt Bag in Woodland Camo Gator Green Dark Olive/Black: I’ve been eyeing this sleek, updated version of a fanny pack for a couple months now. But, game changer, it’s in camo now.
Hotty Hot Short Special Edition 2.5″ in Black: A classic with a big twist, these special edition Hotty Hot Shorts have an elastic waistband with a slightly higher rise and a super cool logo pattern I’ve never seen before!
Flutter Short Sleeve lululemon lab in Crease Print Silky Multi: If you haven’t heard of “the lab” yet, you’ve been missing out. Lab locations are few and far between (1 in Vancouver, 1, maybe 2 in NYC). In-house design teams create special product lines catering to the needs/aesthetic of their location city and typically product is only sold in those stores. Occasionally, and more frequently over the past couple years, lululemon lab pieces will be sold on the .com. This top is made from a super soft material called Cupro most recently seen in the Principal Dancer collection (all that’s left now is the jumpsuit) created with the Royal Ballet.
Here To Move Jacket in Evergreen Camo Pink Multi: Waterproofing and a hidden hood make this the perfect “maybe it might rain later, maybe it might be 60 degrees and sunny” jacket during unpredictable Atlanta weather.
