Who's actually wearing Missoni for Target?


I had a thought the other day as I wore my purple chevron-striped Missoni for Target scarf to work: who's actually wearing this stuff? Most of the goods sold out in the first day, yet I haven't seen it worn by any "real" people (besides myself) except for two instances: this cute minidress (shown) on A) a 20-something blonde woman at the San Francisco airport, and B) on fellow blogger Lemondrop Marie, who owns not only this dress but several other Missoni pieces. But other than that, nothing. You'd think you'd spot someone at the mall or the grocery store or ANYWHERE sporting the iconic zig-zag pattern. What about you, dear readers? Have you seen any Missoni out there in the wild?

I haven't seen anyone other than my daughter in the items I bought her!

Our local Denver newscaster wore the green/purple sweater the other day.

I have worn my zig zags twice since I bought it!

I have two - the blue one shown, as well as the verticle zig zag stripe sleeveless tunic. I have worn each of them at least 3 times. But you are so correct - I haven't seen any others worn out there either! Maybe they are in high schools, college campus' and or only worn at home! Interesting post!

I have seen some little girls in the flower coat, but other than that no one but myself. I am wearing the black sweater with a white zig zag stripe right now!

I wear it a lot, the other weekend with keds sneakers to chase the baby around! I worry I will see so many others wearing it that I will feel silly, but so far not the case. Good question and thanks for the mention, I feel so fashion forward :)

Over in my neck of the woods I have seen several women sporting the Missoni items. Which made my daughter and me even more sad we didn't get anything. The women were wearing it quite stylishly.

I have not seen another real person in Missoni, yet. I wore my brown zig-zag scarf at my local OC mall. It was a conversation starter...sales associates and other shoppers shared their Missoni stories, very interesting. I was lucky enough to receive all my items from restocking at Target. Thanks for a great post :)

I saw a girl wearing the purple zig-zag flats at the mall about a week after the line was launched, but other than that, I haven't noticed any out and about...

I'm quite small so I fit in the largest size of the girls' flower coat, and I'm wearing it in Edinburgh, Scotland - I have women asking me all the time where they can get one and I almost feel bad telling them there's no way! I adore it...

I was looking at some of the "real' Missoni scarves in Saks the other day and wondered about the people who are paying the big bucks for these. Do you think other people looking at them and thinking "Oh, there's one of the scarves from Target".....?

So I just got an email from Target that they are actually mailing out orders that i placed in September! I don't even want the stuff anymore.
