Tea with Missoni

Boutique One hosted an exclusive preview of the Missoni Pre-Fall 2012 collection recently at their Mall of the Emirates store with guest of honour,  Angela Missoni.

As guests tucked into a delicious afternoon tea (and I mean really delicious!), they were treated to a preview of the exquisite collection which had all the bloggers lusting after a piece or two.

The gorgeous set up.

Boutique 1 Trends Showcase

When I am in Dubai, I love to spend at least one afternoon getting lost in the most delectable of designer fashion, footwear and accessories at Boutique 1. My friend Yasmin lives in JBR and her apartment is a two-minute walk from the JBR branch, so I’m always making one excuse or another to pop in to have a look at what’s new in store.  Continue reading

Video: Missoni for Target

It’s my collaboration crush of the season and now with only two weeks to go until it’s launch, Margherita Missoni takes us on a journey of how Missoni got started, the 1960s aesthetic that influenced the Missoni for Target collection and a closer look at the collection to come! So excited!!!

More Missoni for Target

Last week, I shared some of the pictures of the Missoni for Target collection hitting stores on September 13th. Well now a month before the pieces become available online and in stores, more fabulous images of the collaboration have been released.

Womenswear, as seen above, includes kimonos, bikinis, maxi dresses and skirts and some serious knitwear – perfect for all wardrobes!

With ballerina flats starting at $29.99 and wellington boots at $34.99, this collection is seriously sending my pulse into overdrive. I must have the tote and that hat is mine for sure!!

You could afford to deck out your entire house in Missoni prints if your heart so desired. With shower curtains and towels to brighten up any bathroom and linens and cushions for the bedroom, every room in catered for! I need those coffee cups!

The Candy and Couture office is going through a bit of an overhaul at the moment and these pieces of the office are just the thing I need to stay organised. I’m a bit of a stationary fiend anyway, so I will most definitely be investing in some of these pieces! Practical and gorgeous – what’s not to love!?

With pieces for men and children as well as outdoor furniture, this collection really is one that caters to everyone. And remember, it’s all less than $199.99!! Bargaintastic!!!

Missoni for Target

It’s the collaboration I may just consider flying to the States to get my hands on – Missoni for Target launches next month, September 13th to be precise and with over 400 pieces to choose from for men, women, children and home, its like being a kid in a candy store! The best part is that what with prices ranging between $7.99-$199.99 for items, there is something in the collection for everyone!

A sneak peek of the collection was released today and I’m seriously lusting after some of the pieces.

How fabulous are the womenswear pieces? Need the hoody. Need the cape. Need the boots. Need it all!!!!

Not that I have used a bike in years, but the fact that there is a Missoni bike may make me reconsider my mode of transportation! And I need to have the luggage in my life. Since I travel all the time and Emirates Airlines still have not compensated me for destroying my Louis Vuitton trolley back in March, this would be a welcome addition to my ever-expanding suitcase collection.

Now who wants to make a quick trip to the States to do some shopping?!

Style of the Week: Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara looks stunning as she attends the premiere of the Smurfs movie in Los Angeles. The Modern Family actress wore a purple gown by Missoni paired it with some serious bling from Lorraine Schwartz. She is pictured wearing Diamond and Turquoise earrings, an armful of Titanium and Ruby bangles, a Ruby and Diamond cuff, a Diamond, Ruby and Pink Sapphire bangle and a Diamond, Ruby and Turquoise snake cuff.

Who said less is more?!
