The launch of a special collection from Italian brand Missoni on Tuesday morning caused the website of retail giant Target to crash for approximately two hours, according to a New York Times report.

“Due to an overwhelming amount of traffic to Target.com as a result of the Missoni launch this morning, guests are unable to access the site,” Target said in a statement. “Providing a positive shopping experience to our guests is important to us and we are working to get the site back up as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
