If you are a yogurt lover then chances are you are a Yoplait Yogurt lover. I know that Yoplait is my go-to when I want rich creamy yogurt.
Just in time for New York Fashion Week Yoplait Yogurt was given a fun makeover with a signature collection that was styled by fashion designer Christopher Straub. This collection of fashionable cup designs showcase the personality of each flavors.
Christopher Straub said…
Yoplait’s palette of colors and flavors really inspired me for this project. For me, fashion is more than designing clothing – it’s about translating real-life textures and lines into statement pieces. I wanted to find the personality in each flavor and bring it front and center.
< rel="nofollow" a href="http://www.yoplait.com/target" target="_blank">The Yoplait Signature Collection is available exclusively at U.S. Target stores nationwide through February. Each and every cup is brightly colored, has bold designs that bring Straub’s whimsical style to life.
The Strawberry cup is inspired by Straub’s Red Fringe Dress and the Key Lime cup is inspired by his edgy Sequin Dress. The Yoplait Signature Collection also includes Harvest Peach and Oragne Crème from Yoplait Original, and Blueberry Patch and Strawberries ‘n Bananas from Yoplait Light.
Yoplait Shopper Marketing Manager Andrew Lainsbury says…
Choosing a snack or meal can be a lot like choosing an outfit, you select each based on your mood, plans for the day and current inspiration. Both can help you look and feel confident inside and out.
To celebrate Yoplait took it’s Signature Collection to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York on February 13th where the cup designs where showcased alongside the dresses and sketches that inspired them. There were also 2 custom gowns created by Straub using Yoplait cups and lids. How neat!
Yoplait has more than 40 flavors to choose from combined! That is a LOT of delicious flavors to choose from! I love that Yoplait Original and Yoplait Light are an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D. Having healthy options makes choosing snacks a lot easier.
Yoplait is available nationwide. To learn more about Straub’s design inspirations and the Yoplait Signature Collection you can visit Yoplait.com/Target
