Dominique Cohen for Target- 09.20.07
Dominique Cohen for Target. You’ve probably heard about it. It was everywhere, as every GO Target collection seems to be. You’ve seen the ribbon pendant and broach. Well, me too. What i didn’t expect was that when running over to Target for a quick errand, the collection would actually catch my eye and have me hovering at the Target jewelry case. In fact i have seldom even looked in that direction when i go (i tend to go to target to grab method goods and toys usually). Beyond the adorably edgy. fun, gothy display, a fresh shipment had just come in, and i saw a pile of the gorgeous satin pouches and ring/earring boxes taunting me. So when i came back to it three times, i finally gave in and played with a few of the pieces, and purchased this Dominique Cohen Lace-Covered Bead Necklace with Ribbon Tie. The attention to packaging details surprised me, i didn’t realize that they created a series of brown satin corded bags (with a nice beige satin interior) printed with Dominique Cohen for Target on them, and the necklaces even have a tiny little “dom” tag on the silk ribbon. So if you’re ready for an overdose of closeups, as well as my roundup of some of the best pieces, and pics from the LA launch party, as well as some of Dominique Cohen’s high end collection that inspired these pieces… click on.
Found some pictures of the LA Launch Party for the line over at Glam.
Here are a bunch of my favorites from her collection for Target ~ for most of these there are bronze versions as well ~ and i left out the chunky chain metal pieces that i wasn’t feeling. Also, in person the cameo and ribbon were not nearly as fun as in photographs (the
plastic was a bit dented and far from perfect… it drove me nuts!)
UPDATE! Just got a note from Dominique Cohen’s people, and “the cameoâ€™s are actually hand cut in Germany, and they are made of shell”
For those curious what her high end “regular” collections look like, you can definitely see how the style transfered over…. Dominique Cohen
