The new year is the perfect time to start fresh and Target plans to do just that by revamping their strategies for designer collaborations in 2012.

Target recently announced they would be discontinuing their Go International line -- which only focused on apparel -- in favor of a broader range of collaborations. The retailer's new strategy will be modeled after last year's massive Missoni collection, which encompassed everything from clothes and accessories to home goods and furniture.

According to WWD, Target wants to team up with designers to create collections that will cover many departments across their store, including food, clothing, home decor and even pet food, which would definitely be a designer collab first.
