Actually, I was surprised that Missoni had flown off the shelves here in our little city. We are a long way from New York, or from Italy. Not being much of a fashionista, I doubt that I would even know of Missoni, except for Vogue Knitting. When I got home, I got to thinking about those Missoni designs in Vogue -- what would they look like to me now?
Here's some pictures from an article from Vogue Knitting, Fall '91, called "Missoni Magic". Do you think the shape of this sweater will be "in" again soon?
Altogether, I found 13 issues in my personal archives that featured at least one Missoni design. They are mostly from the late '80's and early to mid '90's.
My favorite design is from a Fall/Winter '88 issue.
This sweater may have captured the very spirit of '88, but I think, if you'd made it then, it would still be wearable now.
Some of you are wondering, "enough of historic Missoni, did you get anything?"
And the answer is, well, yes. I couldn't resist. There was a t-shirt in the black & white zig-zag design for me, a dress for my daughter, and
And a media box for CD's in the brown print.
Everything looked fun, fresh, and sort of go-go girl retro-chic. The children's and baby's clothes were adorable!
