Sarah Stevenson for Target, cotton/rayon top, $24

Nationwide: Fine Print

As part of her prize for winning last year’s TFI New Labels competition, Toronto fashion designer Sarah Stevenson has paired with Target to paint the nation red (and purple, and orange, and blue …) with a 15-piece collaboration. Despite the price point—nothing is more than $60!— Stevenson used the same methods employed in her main line; each cheery, digitally manipulated print originates from one of her own paintings.
