Matthew Williamson for H&M hits the following stores tomorrow (Thursday) at 9 a.m.:

Atlanta: Atlantic Station, 231 18th St.
Boston: 100 Newbury St.
Chicago: 840 North Michigan Avenue
Los Angeles: Beverly Center
New York: 34th and Broadway
New York: 51st and 5th
New York: 59th and Lexington
San Francisco: 150 Powell St.

I will be sleeping in, as I have the day off, but if you are a Williamson fan, you can preview the collection online and strategize; expect Racked to have play-by-play commentary.

In Target news, the Loomstate for Target collection is now live, as are Ashley Paige swimsuits, Felix Rey handbags, and Miss Trish of Capri sandals. I will be checking all out in person this weekend when I hit my local Target in Chicago. I will, of course, report back.

Speaking of Target, this tasty tidbit was buried in last Thursday's Fashion Scoops in WWD [subscription required]:

EASY TARGET: Anna Sheffield is spreading her seeds. The jewelry designer, whose Bing Bang line launched Bee 23 with Urban Outfitters last year, is once again hitting up the masses, this time with Target. Rumor has it she’ll be designing jewelry under the name Anna Sheffield for Target, presumably for the retailer’s Go International program, which has seen the likes of hip, downtown designers such as Rogan Gregory, Richard Chai and most recently Tracy Feith. The jewelry hits stores this August.

Yay for that! I love Bing Bang, although I've found Bee 23 to be a little on the disappointing side. Let's hope the Target collection is a bit more successful.

Hitting Topshop April 28th is the Barbara Hulanicki collection. For those of you not well-versed in 20th century fashion history, Hulanicki was the creator of Biba, one of the most influential boutiques of Swinging London. The line is very bohemian and chiffon-y; you can view photos here. For the dudes, Refinery 29 reports Richard Chai, Phillip Lim, Christopher Shannon, Juun J, JW Anderson, and Henry Holland will interpret the classic white T-shirt, with a mini-collection hitting stores May 28th.

Finally, Nylon has a preview of the upcoming Shipley & Halmos collection for Uniqlo, which hits stores May 7th. I feel as neutral about it as I did about the Steven Alan collection, but maybe it will be cuter in person.
