I appreciate the history and culture of Missoni, but I have to admit that this was the post I was least looking forward to writing. Missonis over-designed prints, lack of structure, and the general lack of monochrome color palettes put their offerings out of my comfort realm.

There's a light handed approach to the crazy that usually comes with the Missoni label. From bedrooms, to bars, to restaurants, their design just looks fresh.
