Missoni For Target

13 September 2011

I stopped in to one of my local Target's this morning to find the Missoni for Target collection out, and picked through. After snapping a few shots of what (little) I found I opted to hit the dressing rooms and try a couple pieces on. Like other Target collaborations the Missoni for Target's clothing is obviously, made of what else? Polyester. The sweaters had touches of acrylic which ruffled my feathers a bit, mainly because $50 for a sweater, Target, or not means acrylic should not be included.

 So I made my way to the shoes, finding that the suede shoes were clearly the best of the selection, and it just went downhill from there, the rain boots were flimsy and the 'paint' was smudged which was disappointing to see. Whereas the flats just looked cheap...

I will say the home wares were by far the best, I loved the vases, frames and bedroom sets. 
And since I'm moving into our new place next week I will be returning for what pieces are left of the selection. And though I left empty handed with thoughts of going back to just to buy and sell on Ebay, I will say it is one of the better collections of Target's Go International but I just wish they would branch out of their typical polyester usage, silk and cotton isn't that much more...
What'd you think of the collection?
