Missoni is a brand that has always intrigued me... It includes Womenswear, Menswear, Home decor , 7 Hotels around the world, perfumes and of course an eclectic Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection that should not be ignored.
The first time I noticed a Missoni dress was when I saw Margherita Missoni wearing the fabulous print in a fashion magazine...
Since then, I am always watchful, keen on both Margherita and the Missoni empire... Missoni was founded by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in 1953 after getting hitched, though Ottavio had already began producing track suits in 1947 in Trieste.
According to WWW.STYLE.COM, the inspiration for the Winter 2011 RTW collection came from of a mix of "Natural Born Killers" and Margherita Missoni's little sister: "Adding to the languid, stoned vibe was the soundtrack, featuring "Sweet Jane" by the Cowboy Junkies. That song was used in Natural Born Killers, and its star Juliette Lewis was a reference for Lucia Pieroni's makeup."
In Puerto Rico, Missoni footwear can be purchased at ORMA, located in the Caribe Hilton Hotel- Tel. (787) 721-8246.
