This Sunday, Peter Pilotto mania will hit when the designer drops his first collaboration with Target. That means a frenzy of shopping at stores across Las Vegas, online and through Net-A-Porter.com, which will have its own set of exclusive looks.

This London label, co-designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, launched in 2007 with a kaleidoscope of digital prints that caught the eye of the fashion world. Already the fashion designer received the 2014 British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund award, so consider yourself on the cutting edge of the new wave of designers by landing one of the 70 pieces in the Target collab.

New for Peter Pilotto, who typically creates structured looks, find swimwear as well as beach towels and accessories including sunglasses, tote bags and slip-on skater-style sneakers.

Here now, a cheat sheet that will help you master the Peter Pilotto X Target launch.

1. Get acquainted with the collection. While browsing is fine ahead of time, knowing exactly what you want from the collection ensures you will actually get it. Start by browsing the entire collection here or check out the edited collection above.

2. Know which items are online exclusives. A few items in the lookbook are marked with a single asterisk, denoting that it's only available on Target.com. Target tends to launch the Website between midnight and 3 a.m., so start clicking in that timeframe, and keep in mind that big collab launches tend to crash the site. Net-A-Porter also has exclusives, so suss out if what you want is only carried by the fashion site.

3. Get to Target stores early. Last year, serious diehards lined up for the 3.1 Phillip Lim launch by 7:30 a.m. Stores open at 8 a.m.

4. Know the return policy. Generally Target has a 90-day return policy if tags are intact and you have the receipt. That said, always check your receipt.

5. Don't fret. If your favorite pieces are gone by the time you get to Target in person, someone may have returned it.

6. Know where to go. Without further ado, here's a list of 10 local Targets carrying the collection:
