Normally an “Annie” musical inspired clothing collection would sound cheesy to us but Target’s new undertaking may actually have some promise.
Coinciding with the release of the Jay Z and Will Smith produced remake of the 1977 Broadway show in theaters, the retailer will be debuting a collection on Nov 16. Costume designer Renee Ehrlich Kalfus was tapped to create the 25-piece collection of apparel and accessories.
Priced under $30, the pieces will reflect the modern style of the heroine who lives in New York City. Jeans jackets, buttons and tulle will all be used to separate the kid’s collection from the pack– we have a feeling this will fly off shelves.
“Annie” hits theaters Dec 19; playing the role of Annie is Quvenzhané Wallis and Benjamin Stacks will be played by Jamie Foxx.
