The Target team is working quickly to restock its limited edition Missoni line after it sold out in stores and online Tuesday, AFP News reports.

The much anticipated budget line from the Italian designer included clothing, cookwear, accessories, and even a bicycle with the line's signature zig zag pattern. The demand for the line was so high in fact, that the website crashed early Tuesday morning.

Target posted on its Twitter account Wednesday: "Great news! Limited Missoni for Target items will be restocked by the end of the week!"

Target's Twitter feed also reported that the launch created site traffic to "rival Black Friday," the day after Thanksgiving, which is one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
