Target celebrated its 20th anniversary for its first design collaboration on Saturday with the launch of a collection that brought popular artifacts from the retailer's past.
The "20 Years of Design for All" collection includes products from designers such as Anna Sui, Missoni, Lilly Pulitzer and Zac Posen. There are clothes, bags, home furnishings and kitchenware available. Target also reissued the spinning flute teak, which debuted in 2000 from Michael Graves, the dealer's first design collaborator ever, as part of the collection.

Rick Gomez, Target's executive vice president and marketing and digital officer, said that the collection "takes our guests on a nostalgic journey through our designer collaborative history."  "Design has always been part of Target's DNA," he said. "From the stores and products we create to the partnerships we cultivate, our focus on available Design Target is different from one another and is one of the reasons why guests love to shop with us."
Prices for items in the anniversary collection range from $ 7 to $ 160.
Women's clothing includes expanded size, Target said when announcing the collection.
