Am I the only human alive who didn’t fawn over or love the Missoni For Target line? It debuted in September and had masses of fashion lovers lined up in a frenzy at Target stores, crashed Target.com and sold out in the blink of an eye! I think I slept that day. I honestly couldn’t care less if Target never carries Missoni again. Harsh right? I have no dramatic stance against Missoni, nothing more than a dislike for the designs. I even gave it several weeks to grow on me, thinking I’d pick a few pieces up on Ebay if I changed my mind. Didn’t happen. I didn’t buy it from Target so I definitely wouldn’t buy it on Ebay for more! It is personal taste and the line merely doesn’t appeal to me.
Viewing some items from the collection offended my eyeballs in a painful way. My poor pupils get confused and do not know where to look. It’s like a newbie with a DSLR camera on manual mode…the camera, if it had thoughts, would wonder what the fluffernutter it’s supposed to focus on! I think some of the pieces are quite cute but majority of the patterns are far too busy, especially when you pair them together. When I saw the line at Target, I felt like I could have seizures and I’m not even epileptic.
Some pieces of the Missoni For Target line are nice, like the cosmetic cases and housewares. I like the cosmetic cases and may try to get my hands on one but that’s about it. I guess I personally just do not get the big deal about this collection from a fashion perspective. All the press, the declarations of fashion lust and “Omg must get Missoni or I’ll have a meltdown” reactions baffled me. This shopaholic is lost and scratching her head. Last I heard is that even in the last few weeks, people had not received their items due to back orders and were issued a $25 Target gift card instead. Insanity. I love Target, love, love…but the Missoni line is just a miss for me.
What are your thoughts on Missoni For Target? Have you purchased any pieces that won’t make me dizzy or want to solve a maze game on fabric?
