Missoni Home…

The Legends of La Cienega came and went this year… it’s an annual celebration of design that brings together tastemakers from home décor, interior design, architecture, and of course, art and fashion. I unfortunately was too caught up with work and couldn’t attend any of the two-day events. With all the buzz around the Missoni and Target collaboration coming out this fall, I couldn’t help but to reminisce a design panel that I attended last year during the Legends week. The panel was aptly named “La Dolce Vita: The sweet life of design with color in the home, film, and fashion”. One of the speakers was no other than Wanda Jelmini, the creative director of Missoni Home. Wanda, niece of Rosita Missoni, flew in from Italy to speak on the panel and what a treat it was. When asked what her favorite color is during the panel discussion, I was too happy to hear the answer: white. Yup. Ironic you may say, since Missoni is all about colors. But I think it makes perfect sense…

Spotted these fun Missoni poufs on Design Milk recently. Talk about details – love the branded leather strap handle and the stitching:
