Barneys New York creative director Simon Doonan will design "sophisticated" Halloween costumes for Target. Doonan's birthday coincidentally falls on Halloween so it's a huge celebration for him. He intends to put the chicness back into Halloween with fun costumes. According to WWD:
“People on reality TV get to be exhibitionists,” Doonan said. “I thought of The Situation and those boys from ‘Jersey Shore’ when I did the T-shirt for the Pumpkin Punk Rocker costume.”
His and Hers costumes — Meatballs for him and Spaghetti for her — feature red-and-white plaid tablecloth fabric, with yarn noodles cascading from the shoulders of the woman’s tunic. A pillbox hat topped with a heaping helping of pasta and meatballs completes the look. There’s a matching costume for dogs replete with a hat that says “Ciao! Chow!” Kids costumes are $25; adults, $30, and dogs, $9.99.
The collection launches in Target stores on Sept. 12 and on target.com on Aug. 22.
