Retailer Target is teaming up with designer Thakoon Panichgul to create the next limited-edition collection for its GO International line.

Panichgul, celebrated for his avant-garde updates to classic American sportswear, will launch the range online and at most of Target's 1,648 stores nationwide on 28 December.

His resort collection of women's swimwear and apparel will be available throughout the month of January 2009 at prices ranging from $16.99 to $44.99.

Stand-out pieces include a floral print canvas coat, a shibori print ¾-sleeve dress, floral print shorts and a striped pleated dress.
"Thakoon Panichgul is an extraordinary design talent with a keen eye whose brilliantly priced collection is sure to please our guests," said Trish Adams, senior vice president, Target.

Thai-born, Omaha-raised Panichgul designs ready-to-wear for the Hogan fashion house Hogan, and sells his eponymous collection at top boutiques around the world including Barneys New York and Jeffrey.
