    Here's a link for Fall 10

    http://frillr.com/?q=image/tid/3791



    Fall 2009 had the craziest patchwork stuff, some of the knits occasionally show up on ebay and yoox.


    Fall 2011 remains my favorite styling-wise and wearability-wise though. I wish Missoni online presence didn't suck so much, wouldn't have minded a couple of items from that collection.

    Great pics everywhere. For anyone who cares, you can actually buy Missoni fabrics. They're not cheap, of course. For instance: http://www.britexfabrics.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=missoni

    Ottavio Missoni also has an interesting biography. He was an Olympic athlete, a runner specializing in the 400 meter, and he fought in World War II, during which he was captured and held in a POW camp in Egypt. When he returned to Italy, he resumed running, and at the 1948 Olympic games in London, for which he designed the Italian team's uniforms, he met his wife, Rosita, who was there studying English. They married in 1953 and opened a small knitwear workshop in Italy. People started to take notice of their knits, and then their fame took off in 1967, when as NYMag puts it, "Rosita instructed models to remove their bras under sheer blouses at a fashion show in Florence and walk nearly nude (they weren't invited back)."

    How does everyone feel about Missoni's past collaborative efforts with Converse? Throwing Missoni knits on the base Chuck Taylor may not have been enough for myself to purchase but coupled with the premium leather detailing, I would chalk these up as a win. The second pair is still available in sizes fit for the ladies on Bodega's website.

    I actually own this sweater, though in a crewneck. Am I wrong in thinking that it's so ugly that it kinda works?

    MISSONI FALL/WINTER 2014

    Loving the introduction of a looser silhouette (surprise). Stronger collection than last year as far as I'm concerned.

    I think the earthy deep burgundy and brown tones with a looser silhouette suit the clothes best, sort of like how the whole FW10 collection was. That is still one of my favorite collections. Could see myself wear one of those crewneck knits and the looser trousers from this one That suede jacket in the 2nd pic is drool worthy as well.

    I've tried on some knits at TBS and unfortunately they fit very small. Short and slim.
    I doubt I'll ever will be able to find it in a size that fits me the way I want.

    can anyone attest to the quality of the (more recent) knitwear? Interested in a knit blazer.

    Thanks
