Thanks to Target's budget-friendly, insanity-inducing collabs (yep, Peter Pilotto's next in line), even cash-strapped collegians can score a piece of their fave designers for less. Taking a cue from fellow stunt-pullers TOMS, the mass retailer's setting up a decked-out pop-up dorm room at UCLA, where scholars will be served with more style inspo this weekend, this time in the decor department.
This Saturday and Sunday, curious Bruins can watch a pretend pupil act out scholarly activities like eating, reading and chillin' (we're guessing there'll be bathroom breaks) in the glass-enclosed room-in-a-box. All the while, university-bound folks can shop the goods on display, score a chance to win prizes, expand their college culinary skills with cooking classes—Top Ramen is not a balanced meal, okay?—and partake in other dorm survival activities. For those in need of last-minute school supplies, a free shuttle will be moving students between campus and a nearby Target to pick up forgotten essentials.
