M is for Missoni

There is something about the generational family brand that is Missoni.  I somehow became completely fixated on the label last year as a heritage brand, so imagine my EXTREME JOY when my mom gave me this vintage Missoni orange label tunic over the holidays. If I didn’t know better, I’d think it was new, the knit is soft enough to wrap a baby in, light-weight enough to for Spring and Summer, and the colour and pattern carry me far, far away from the grey of winter.

Beautiful vintage symbolizes so much: standing the test of time, classic style, craftsmanship.

    p.s. I do shop vintage. I have many fave finds but one of my most recent vintage purchases is a yellow Valentino jacket. I love pairing it with jeans. It's the only yellow piece I have in my wardrobe…definitely stands out!

  7. Amazing! Lucky you! I am still on the hunt for the perfect vintage Missoni piece for myself. The color combo on this is stunning. My favorite find was this 1960's wool maxi dress by a designer named, Enzo Vincelli 🙂
