To celebrate the opening of the Target location on 116th street in East Harlem, Isabel and Ruben Toledo have teamed up to create a limited-edition collection of summer essentials—t shirts, bikinis, sarongs, and beach towels—each featuring Ruben's signature illustrations, and Isabel's sharp attention to design. The colorful printed bikinis above are just one example of this perfectly matched pairing. The complete collection will be sold in the East Harlem store beginning July 25 and online starting August 1, where five percent of Toledo-designed purchases will go to support the couple's cause of choice—Harlem’s El Museo del Barrio.

In honor of Target's upcoming opening in East Harlem, the mass retailer has created the Harlem Designer Collections, a limited-edition line spanning across various categories and reflecting the vibrant spirit of Harlem. The fashion category is led by designer couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo — Michelle Obama has worn Isabel's pieces — and includes swimwear, t-shirts, beach towels, and frocks. Starting Aug. 1, you can pick up the affordable, bold pieces through Target.com, and all the while, give back; Target will donate 5 percent of each product's purchase to Isabel and Ruben's nonprofit of choice, El Museo del Barrio.
