3.1 Phillip Lim for Target: The Good, the Great, and the Gross

If you've never shopped a capsule collection, we bet 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will convince you to line up at the big box. Sure, we were excited about the collab before we got the full lookbook. But seeing all the items set for release online and in stores September 15 has us in a shopaholic's tizzy.

Here's what to put on your wishlist, what you can skip, and what will haunt your dreams for life. Just one question: Are you ready for #limsanity?

The Good: There's plenty to pick through in the men's and womenswear line, but a few of our faves include a comics-influenced scarf, a matching set of pajamas, and the deep navy tuxedo-style blazer.

The Great: The bags from this line are patently to die for. We're willing to bet that on release day shoppers will run for the accessories. That's unsurprising when you consider that Lim's bags usually retail around $1000. That means carrying one of his covetable for-Target carryalls will be a sign of a lady or gent who lined up early.

The Gross: To put it as gently as possible, this blue and marigold leopard print is puke-worthy. Too bad for our gag reflexes, it shows up on multiple pieces.
