SS11 Campaign
Tribal stripes in SS11 Campaign
Last year's Missoni campaign depicted several generations of the Missoni dynasty in a suitably stripey home. It was shot by Juergen Teller in his typical washed out style and struck a real chord with me! I suppose my extended family on my father's Italian side is not vastly disimilar... Mediterranean roots, long dark hair for the youngsters and sparse white hair for the elders and pretty good style. But these Missonis in their space dye and glorious knitwear, and homeware to die for, they are something elese. The whole family-ness behind the distinctive brand really sells it for me. I love how un model-esque they are, the chubby fingers and the wrinkles and the gangly boys. I am a sucker for nostalgia and anything that unites the generations. See here why:

  1. Love love LOVE the entire Missoni family. IMAGINE having the run of that wardrobe. And Margherita is such a beauty.

  2. レイバン サングラスの新作はかさばるイメージを変え、小さくて精巧なイメージに変身しました。今、大人気になるレイバン RB3025及びレイバン RB2140というモデルにサイズが小さなモデルも現れしました。それをかけて、スマートな知識者に見えるでしょう。
