While it’s American culture and fashion of the sixties that we seem to be fixated on right now, the Missoni family used Italian films from the era—when the house got its first big global boom—as a reference point for its upcoming Target collaboration. In this video, debuting exclusively on Style.com, the heritage brand’s ambassador, Margherita Missoni, shares the backstory of the classic Italian brand’s 400-piece collection, set to bow September 13.
“I think it will be great for the Target guest to experience a taste of the Missoni lifestyle, something they might not have been able to do before,” she tells Style.com. “We love that our collection dresses all ages, from toddlers on—it’s for everyone who wants to have a first or second, third, fourth taste of Missoni.”
New Yorkers will get the first helping when the Missoni x Target pop-up store, located at 1095 Sixth Ave. near Bryant Park, opens September 8 on Fashion’s Night Out. “We hope to see everyone in their favorite Missoni for Target pieces throughout fashion week in New York,” Margherita says. “Maybe we’ll see someone riding through the streets on the bike—wouldn’t that be amazing?”
It’s a likely enough scenario, given the current hype about Target’s biggest designer collaboration collection ever. The bike, along with the iPad cases and the blue zigzag puffer jacket, are among some of Margherita’s personal favorites.
Comme Des Garçons Gets To Work, Marina Abramović Stages Her Own Demise, Mourning Becomes Accessories, And More…-------
Comme des Garçons is having a Rosie the Riveter moment right now, thanks to their new collaboration with French uniform maker Bleu de Paname. The collection, available for pre-order now, is just for women at the moment, but a menswear collaboration is reportedly on its way for Spring 2012. [Hint]
Now you can get your vintage at Target. On Sunday, the brand is set to launch a Vintage Varsity collection of 90 items for men, women, children, and juniors, inspired by “timeless” locations like the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wis. [WWD]
As for bizarre trends, mortality seems to be a fashionable subject these days. First Daphne Guinness is “laid in state”, and now performance artist Marina Abramović is attending her own funeral in The Life and Death of Marina Abramović. Before the show’s Manchester Festival debut, Nowness gets a sneak peak at her new production. [Nowness]
And speaking of death, no reason not to accessorize the inevitable. T stumbles upon a Red Hook, Brooklyn, shop that carries a selection of Victorian mourning jewelry—much of it braided with the dead beloved’s hair. [T]
Hard to imagine it now, but there was a time before fast fashion/designer collaborations. (It was a mythical year called…2003.) The meeting of high-end designer and mass retailer has changed the way we shop, and none more than Target, whose designer collab series, GO International, celebrates its fifth year in 2011. To celebrate, it’s digging back through the archive and re-releasing dresses from its now-unavailable collections gone by; the 34-piece collection will draw on GO lines by Proenza Schouler, Luella Bartley, Libertine, Rogan, Richard Chai, Rodarte, and more. The company’s remaining tight-lipped about what will be produced until February 2011, but if we’ve got any powers to persuade, we have a few suggestions for dresses we’d be happy to see—and even wait on line for!—a second time around.

When most people’s love affairs fizzle, they eat a half-gallon of Häagen-Dazs and call it a day. When Pretenders front woman Chrissie Hynde’s tryst with a much-younger musician cooled, she started a new band, recorded a new album (co-written by him!), and founded an animal-friendly, leather-free clothing line. That Häagen-Dazs isn’t looking so good now, is it? [WWD]
Set your clocks: Mulberry’s affordably-priced Target collection (pictured) goes on sale today at Gilt at noon EST. [Fashionista]
The rumors are true: There’s a little angel on the way. Newly hitched Miranda Kerr confirmed in an interview that, as suspected, she and Orlando Bloom are expecting. [Fashionologie]
And frequent festival-goer Alexa Chung has some tips for surviving the summer fests: “I usually just pick something I’m comfortable in and shove a Barbour over it because nothing is fun when you’re freezing cold,” she says. That’s pretty sound advice even if you’re nowhere near the muddy fields of Glasto. [Vogue U.K.]
