(ImaxTree)Target has a new coveted designer collaboration on the way, with Peter Pilotto. Launching February 9 across the U.S., the collab will include ready-to-wear garments, accessories and swimwear. While Target will help launch the designers' names into households throughout the U.S., luxury e-tailer Net-a-Porter will also be selling 38 of the 60-piece capsule collection for international shoppers.
The brand is comprised of two London-based designers, Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Voss, who share a history of attending The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and working beneath designer Vivienne Westwood. Their collective cultural backgrounds (Pilotto is Australian and Italian, while De Vos is Belgian and Peruvian) influence their dynamic designs of bright colors and complex patterns. While the duo has been around since 2005 and is highly sought-after in Europe, this year especially has seen an incline in A-listers frolicking in their vibrant frocks.

The diverse swatch of celebrities shows the range of playful prints and statement silhouettes in Peter Pilotto designs.
Based on their past aesthetic (view their most recent collection below), the collab is sure to see color. However, while their namesake apparel boasts intricate embellishments, the latest line adapts with "hyperreal floral and geometric graphics to a wardrobe ready-made for a Montauk weekend." For those of you who cannot bear the suspense, the designers recently gave Elle a sneak peak.
