If I could live inside of any fashion house’s… well, house, it would without a doubt be Missoni. Founded by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in 1953 the Italian fashion empire encompasses luxury goods and an even international hotel line. As much as I love a monotone and minimalist home, I can’t deny that I prefer to live in a very colorful world. So Missoni has always impressed with me with their ability to basically break all the rules with their excessive combinations of colors, prints, and patterns and still manage to make it all look tasteful with some 60’s charm.
I’m a little bummed I hadn’t moved into my new apartment last fall when the Missoni for Target collection launched— although it may be for the best given the chaotic accounts from the debut. It may be awhile before I can afford a legitimate piece of Missoni furniture, or even something as small as a tea towel, but maybe one day soon I can treat myself to a stay at one of the Hotel Missonis.
