Target’s Latest Future Collective Line is Bringing Us the Heat Just in Time for Summer

Featuring some of the most influential Black fashion designers and style mavens of today, Target’s Future Collective lines are always highly anticipated—no matter the name attached. On May 20, 2024, fashion and style influencer Jeneé Naylor became the latest person to have her name etched in the special collection’s “Hall of Fame.” And on June 23, 2024, she dropped a second capsule just in time for all of your summer fun.

The Future Collective brand debuted in September 2022 with Kahlana Barfield Brown, a Howard University alum and former InStyle beauty director turned style expert. The collection ran through January 2023 and was quickly followed by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s capsule soon after. Since then there have been four rollouts, with Naylor’s launch becoming the sixth.

Inspired by the influencer’s global travels and front-row seats at some of the world’s top runway shows, this new line will truly have folks thinking you booked a flight overseas for your outfit. But luckily, you can just head to your local Target or even to make a fashion statement.

From summer dresses for that rooftop date night or weekend brunch to more tailored silhouettes when you want to head straight from the office to the weekly happy hour, here are the trendiest pieces from Jeneé Naylor’s Target Future Collective collection that you’ll want to add to your summer wardrobe.
