Missoni is everywhere this spring and I mean everywhere. You can wear their iconic zig-zags to the pool, to the playground and stroll your baby with them. Soon we'll even be able to sleep in them, eat with them and maybe even write "thank you" notes with them. Thanks to a variety of partnerships with Missoni, with a variety of price points, everyone will be able to enjoy the colorful patterns designed by Missoni.
I'm a big fan of the good ol'?? flip-flop, so I am absolutely in love with the new Missoni Havianas. I guess I'm not the only one, because the Missoni flip-flops are sold out on the Havaianas website, but, fear not, there will be more available soon. They aren't cheap, of course, but I'??m sure the quality is far superior to cheapo flip-flops and will spare your toes from blisters. Missoni Havaianas are available in three styles of flip-flops and an espadrille that might make you weep from it's loveliness. These babies are so cool, they might really be worth the steep price tag of $60 and up. What do you think?
If a child could draw a Missoni pattern, it would look a lot like the new Missoni + Bugaboo strollers. And that'??s a good thing. Missoni created two designs for their partnership with Bugaboo that look like a Missoni coloring book. The Bugaboo Bee'??s sun canopy is all dressed up in the striking zig-zag and the Cameleon gets a very modern block print on the sun canopy and bassinet apron. To make the deal even sweeter, both strollers come with a coordinating, knit Missoni blanket. With the Rolls Royce of strollers and the hmmm'?¦ Missoni of blankets, this is a match made in super, posh strolling heaven. The Missoni + Bugaboo strollers will be available exclusively at Neiman Marcus in July.
This year is Missoni'??s third collaboration with Converse and there are two styles to swoon over: stripes in aqua, purple and black for women and a bright-colored striped unisex sneaker. The new 2011 Misonni Chuck Taylor Converses were supposed to be available in March, but I can'??t find them anywhere on-line. Last year'??s Chuck Taylor Missoni zig-zag sneaker are available at Saks. However, both seasons'?? sneakers are $200, which, in my opinion, is a little steep for a sneaker, no matter how cool.
I'??m very excited to check out Target'??s partnership with Missoni for obvious reasons. (Ah, because I can afford them!) The collection will be available September 13 '?? October 22 and you can expect to find apparel and accessories for the whole family, bedding, dinnerware, stationery and dÃ©cor. Yippee. I can't wait.
