Yay, I'm glad it's good quality. It just seemed a little too cheap to be true haha. Look forward to receiving it. When I first clicked in I didn't realise it came in two other colourways and so had a little panic. I'd have loved some of the glass pieces or ceramic plates but they'd have cost a fortune to get over to the UK with My US.

Just got back from two Targets. Women throwing random Missoni items in their shopping carts, so frustrating and gross. It seems the pillows and throws are the most coveted. Didn't buy the mens black cardigan, the quality was not good. Just madness.

no i stopped by the one in Framingham - a bunch of young-ish moms swapping battle stories and relaying their victories to each other

i'm just hoping i can still find stuff on the website when it comes back up...
i don't think i'll have time to check out an even more suburban target today and i really want that throw and possibly a comforter

The website is back up. There is barely anything for men, two sweaters a bunch of ties, 1 pair of socks, and some hats thats it. Such a shame

Yeah, and that's not even because things have sold out. That's actually all there was. Clearly they don't get male customers through the door, or believe many men want Missoni.

i just ordered a bunch of stuff on the website kind of haphazardly...
got expensive because i didn't know what the sizing would be like so i ordered two of each on a bunch of things (the black maxi skirt and a few shirts)

so annoyed about those throws! i really want one

There are SO many on e-bay, if Target restock them for the period of the collection then they're sure to become pretty devalued on there. Hopefully it'll be easy for you to pick one up.

ugh so annoyed...

just read a report from a local journalist that there was "screaming, hoarding and pushing" at MY target (the one i planned to go to tonight)

here's a photo of one of the shoppers. user designNE on yfrog

the photo and accompanying story made the front page of boston.com
i'm hoping that the woman hoarder and her "team" will be recognized and think twice about this stuff. c'mon really 3 cartloads?



WTF, this is target not H&M.

Missoni Madness broke out across the country as Target Corp.’s 400-piece discount collection of clothes and home furnishings from the Italian fashion house hit stores and went online Tuesday.

Women lined up well ahead of 8 a.m. store openings to be the first to grab scarves, dresses and bedding with the iconic and colorful Missoni chevrons.

By 9 a.m. many stores had sold out of everything.

A Dallas Target store only had a few throw pillows, ballet flats and baby clothes left two hours after the store opened, a manager said, adding. “It was a disaster in here this morning.”

Traffic to Target’s website was so brisk it crashed the site in the morning and was still down several hours later. Target apologized for the inconvenience and said it was trying to get the site back up, according to a statement.

Read the story behind Missoni and Target’s collaboration.

Melanie Cortese, a mother of two, was at Target in Union, N.J., at 9 a.m. and was surprised to see the parking lot so packed. She was there to buy her daughter a new Barbie DVD and could barely negotiate the aisles for all the carts full of “clothes with bright squiggly lines.”

A woman on line ahead of Ms. Cortese had at least $1,000 worth of the Missoni clothing and bedding in her cart and explained she had five daughters.

“I knew Missoni was coming but didn’t know it would be such a big deal,” Ms. Cortese said. “I have never seen such well-dressed, well-coifed, tan, yoga-looking moms at Target at 9 a.m.”
