Shopping Alert: Rafe for Target

10/24/2006 at 11:00 AM ET

Nothing gets us more excited than high design at low prices! So, of course, we are thrilled that accessories designer Rafe Totengco, best known for his luxurious eponymous line, has joined the ranks of designers creating a limited edition collection for Target. Our picks are the chic doctor’s bag, $50, the glossy patent clutches, $20, and the super-slick navy hobo bag, $50 (left). Get them now before Rafe fans like Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria snap them up!

Is the Rafe Doctor Black bag leather?? B/C for $50 bucks that’s pretty inexpensive?? Can someone out there let me know if it’s leather?

From the Target website: 100% PVC

i work in the high end designer fashion industry. the average person doesn’t realize what it actually costs to make things. they are so used to mass produced junk. Target has tried to take high end design and bring it to the masses at an affordable price… bravo! For you to say it’s expensive, is absurd. If you had to craft a handbag like that from scratch yourself, how much would you expect someone to pay you for your time and labor? Think about it.

I totally agree. I went to a pretty well known and highly respected design school and graduated with a degree in accessories design. To do something like what Rafe has designed for Target at that price is amazing. To make one bag would take me a full semester at least!

These are some cute bags! Pricey-No. Pricey for Target-Yes! They’re really nice though. I love all the pockets.

I just got the navy hobo bag today. I LOVE IT! I’m so glad that they have designer bags now at Target, my fav. store. For those of us who can’t afford the high end stuff, this is great. We should all be able to have high fashion, not just the rich and famous.

It’s great that stuff is being made so the general public can afford to buy stylish things, but I wouldn’t buy it. It’s not my style. You guys are so lucky. I wish we had Target stores up here in Canada. I hear they are amazing.
