Missoni for Target
Yes, I'm mad for Missoni!
Evidently everyone else is,too.
Today, marked the launch of Missoni for Target.
Missoni merchandise to fly off the shelves within just a few hours.
Of course, I had to be there with all the excitement because
I love the designs of the
Italian Fashion House of Missoni.
As a knitter who loves fashion,
I love their mix-and-match patterns and famous knitwear that they are famous for. Did you know, there are even Missoni knitwear patterns in Vogue Knitting magazines from the 1980's and 1990's.
I am normally one of the first shoppers to hit Target when they have a big name designer collaboration. Most of the time, the collections aren't even out yet so today I hit my local Target at 9:30AM instead of 8:00 AM when they opened. No big deal right?
Oh my gosh, what a mistake that was for me, a seasoned shopper. I should have known better and I paid the price. The Missoni merchandise was already pretty well picked over and I heard there was a line out front before they opened.
By the time I got to Target this morning the accessory items were just about sold out.
I was most excited to see the Missoni scarves. There were only a few left at my local Target store. So I hit the road to other nearby Target stores and managed to find a few more scarves at each stop I made. I also lucked out and found a cute cardigan and silk scarf in Missoni's trademark zig-zag print.
I must report that I was most impressed that the Missoni scarves were made of 100% silk and not polyester. I know the Missoni family must have insisted on that.
As for the knits...my cardigan is a rayon and cotton blend. The fun knit scarves I picked up do have some acrylic content which I'm not that crazy about. At Target prices though...I better not complain!
The Missoni tags say:
Patterned After No One.
Priced For Everyone.
I feel pretty lucky today that I snagged some Missoni pieces!
Bound for Italy!
PS: Don't you just love this 21" Spinner Suitcase?
Wouldn't it be perfect for a trip to Italy?
I went ahead and passed on it today but I did tell my husband that it would be pretty cool
to wear my new Missoni outfit in Italy...someday????
