Targeting Missoni

Remember back when I told you about Missoni working on a design collaboration with Target?  You don’t?  Terrible.  Fortunately here is the link.

Go ahead.  Visit it.  I will wait.


You’re back?  Good, now we are all caught up!

Anyways, yesterday the first ad for the collaboration was leaked:

So I have a few things to say about it:

First—how perfectly Italian?!

Second—how amazing are the pieces?  I am already wearing the dress in my mind!  And Lukus needs the cardigan and the tie.  Yes, I said “needs.” (He says he doesn’t need the cardigan.  I plan to prove him wrong.)

Third—did you catch who the brunette is?  Well, it is Margherita Missoni- heiress, ambassador & face of the brand!

Margherita has also gained accolades for her own sense of personal style and has become a bit of a fashion blogger darling.  I thought I would share some of her looks here:

What do you think of Margherita’s sense of style?

Are you excited about the collaboration?  It launches September 13th!





  1. I love Target! And that dress. And Margherita, she is sooo cute. Love her sense of style. And her blue toe nail polish. Don’t you just love how I pay attention to detail.

  2. This collab has been the hot topic among my friends–I’ve been missoni obsessed for awhile– have you seen their beach towels and towels in rainbow butterflies? Love!

  3. I love these! I like something different and this is!!

  4. September 13th!

    There are no Target here for the moment but they just bought a lot of Zellers in Quebec so I should be able to see the new brand soon (maybe next year!)

  5. I love the ad and the pieces! I immediately noticed the chevron and loved it!

  6. 1. I worship her style. 2. I cannot WAIT to check out this collab!!!

  7. I LOVE Target and can’t wait to start shopping for Fall/Winter soon. I love the colors and patterns shown here. Come on Fall!!!

  8. On my way! I love Target!!!
