"Missoni Madness". Do you remember where you were a year ago? Did you get caught up in the frenzy caused by the Bullseye over items from the Italian fashion house that we later discovered wasn't really even designed by them? OK, so they "oversaw design", whatever that means. But most of the items were made in China, and I think we can all agree that all the hype, the store sellouts, and eBay inflations weren't worth it.
There are a few Missoni items that are prominently displayed in my house and that I use every day. Like this vase (shown) and my etched wine glasses (still readily available on eBay, if anyone is interested). Out of the clothing, all I kept was a couple of the cardigans, which I have to admit I've rarely worn. In retrospect, all the fanfare seems rather silly, doesn't it?
