my guess is the first week in august we will start to see some images. the ads for the line should be in the september glossies and those release the second week in august. of course images can always leak out at the press preview.

Same here! Putting back some $$ now. Excited about this

Thank you yet again for the answer! I do hope images will leak because I August seems so far away.

Is Target home wear really cheap? I'm asking because Missoni Home doens't strike me as that expensive; here the prices of Missoni Home towels, cushions and such are very similar to those of normal department store homewear actually Only the carpets and bed sheets are slightly more expensive.

• lamp base - $19.99

^Awesome, that is indeed very inexpensive! I own quite a lot of Missoni Home stuff already and most of it I got for free because that senile but very sweet old guy who owns a interior decor shop here always gives me something for free and probably doesn't realize it's always me and that I've never even purchased anything in his shop
But of course there's always room for more and I can't wait to get some more zig zag pillows, curtains, etc

it may because H&M has ripped off missoni's prints (stylespotterfashionblogger.blogspot.com) this style was apparently pulled from H&M stores.

Missoni owns their own factories. it would be nice if some of the garments were produced there.
Maybe because Missoni is not a recognized-enough or cult label, like Lagerfeld and Lanvin?

one of the best collaborations I've heard in a LONG time
I'm definitely going to save for this

my guess would be a couch...
or something upholstered in a horrid missoni pattern...

...

*i don't like missoni...
everyone knocks it off already...
so you can always get cheap missoni-looking stuff...
(which makes me like it even less)...

i feel like all anyone needs from missoni is one scarf...
and once you have that...
well...
that's enough zig zag for me...

...
and i guess a bikini could work-like the h&m one...
but i doubt they're doing swimwear for September...
:p

^ i'm in concurrence with you softie. missoni looks fun but definitely too garish for my taste. i might do a scarf(if included)or a couple pieces from the home collection but that's about it.

^^that sounds like a pretty good guess for the big ticket item...
some piece of furniture i'm sure...

i agree that scarves tend to be more than enough zigzag/missoni print for the most part but i've acquired a few M Missoni pieces that I enjoy wearing... a couple blouses that are actually solid colors and you wouldn't guess are Missoni... a zigzag mini skirt, and a maxi dress with a crocheted top and silk non-zigzag pattern from under the boobs to the floor (bad description but it actually looks really good on me :p)

i do think a zigzag or patterned bikini could potentially be really cute
but i think missoni can easily slip into overkill territory

i'm curious to see what they've come up with for pillows/sheets/bedding etc
i need a little something to add some color/life to my bedroom and this could be an inexpensive way to do that (I have some black and gold printed pillow shams and bed skirt that I just find to be depressing at this point... i've already thrown out the comforter they came with and I'd like to get rid of the rest)
