1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Because it was needed. Half asleep right now so I'll make a proper 1st post tomorrow. Give me some colors, woot woot.

    In the mean time...

    Ok, now here's a bit of history. The Missoni fashion house was born in Italy some 50 years ago; between then and now they took the time to diversify a bit with napkins, bedsheets, hotels, San Pellegrino ltd editions bottles and a bazillion of other lucrative projects we reaaaally don't give a fuck about in this thread. They also have some kind of diffusion line, namely Missoni sport - that's been discontinued in 2002 (but still shows its ugly head on ebay sometimes, you've been warned) and M Missoni which is still around (mostly women stuff I believe). So Missoni's thing is knitwear, that's what the mainline is known for basically. But knits with an edge, not traditional stuff : crazy colors and weird patterns, crazy patterns, hypnosis/epilepsy inducing patterns.

    Enough with the talking, here come the piccies. Collection by collection rundown, starting with 2005. The line was a bit teh suck back then so let's not dwell on it.

    But somewhere around Fall 2007, things start to change, Missoni gets its shit together. There're still some unfortunate looks and the colors could be better but overall it's improving, a lot. And they were on that mountaineering tip before everyone else.

    Fall 2007

    Fall 2008

    Still a bit of a hit-or-miss, buncha weirdly proportionned stuff but it's getting there.

    Fuck yes

    That's also the year they decided to make some Missoni chucks...
    [​IMG]

    and the year they hired weirdo extraordinnaire and experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger to film their video ad campaign




    What a year !




    Spring 2011

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    I'm strangely attracted to some of the super colorful layerings, styling is a bit off.






    and last but not least



    Fall 2011

    Amazing stuff, most probably the focus of this thread but it's still one year away [​IMG]

    I'm surprised they don't get much love on SF. That jacket at 1:02 [​IMG]

    Lol, had forgotten I made this yesterday.

    Up until now I think the patterns and color were a bit too crazy for SF but that F/w collection seems nicely toned down, 2011 should be the year. And it doesn't seem widely available online which is always an obstacle, also the price.

    FW11 is the first season of Missoni I've seen that I actually like. But yeah, the price is prohibitively expensive for me.

    Love the FW 2011 stuff.

    What sort of price point are we talking about? Around the Bottega Veneta level?

    I have a few ties, 2 mainline sweaters one of which is cashmere and 2 sport cardigans. Love their stuff. How much did that cashmere retail for?
