Shaun and Target continue their relationship and collaboration in the creation of a stylish, affordable line of T-shirts, woven shirts, shorts and denim jeans for boys and young men.
"I'm excited to continue working closely with Target on the line. We had so much fun with the limited-edition collection last fall that we had to come back again," said Shaun. "With the new line, you can definitely see the influence that music, art, skateboarding and travel have on me and the designs we are creating."
Trish Adams, senior vice president, Target, adds, "The Shaun White 4 Target collection brings a new element of progressive style to Target. The line is a great addition to our product offering that we're happy to deliver to our guests year-round at very reasonable prices."

"We are enthusiastic about the return of Shaun White 4 Target. The line is an important piece of our long-standing relationship and we look forward to continuing to work with Shaun to create a strong apparel line," said Troy Michels, Target Lifestyle Marketing.
