What do you get when you cross Target with Missoni? You get amazingly fashion forward clothing, accessories, children's (you know I'm getting Damian any baby/toddler boy stuff and Corey, my oldest son, any of the men's stuff), linens, luggage, etc. that are budget friendly $7.99 to $199.99.
I already set my Outlook Calendar and my cell phone's calendar for 12:01 am on September 13, 2011. Yes, I know I will be awake doing paperwork for the daycare, Little Sprouts Day School and Tel's Closet.
Now some may say these are a little retro, a little 70-ish, or whatever ... I say WHO CARES!! It's FREAKING MISSONI + TARGET.... I mean come on - Target occassionally has a designer who brings something in that I might find worthy to look at but this time Target knocked it out of the park, so to speak, with being able to land Mission - Freaking - Missoni. I guess you can tell by now that I'm a Missoni fan (not that I actually own any of their pieces - just only bought for my mom before).
From the Huffington Post news article:
The first ad for Missoni's upcoming collaboration with Target has surfaced, in the form of a picture Tweeted by @MarilynAgencyNY.
In it, zigzag-clad Margherita Missoni pulls her zigzag-printed luggage and walks alongside a zigzag-clad young man, pulling his own zigzag-printed suitcase.
The collection -- slated to hit stores September 13 and priced between $7.99 and $199.99 -- was first announced in May by Vogue.com. It's said to include 400-plus items, from clothing "to bed sheets, to enough dinnerware to set the table for colazione, pranzo, and cena," Mark Holgate wrote.
