Sweet mercy, people!? Really?
I’ll repeat what my wife said to me last night: You gotta buy it all, or buy none of it, because that crap doesn’t work on its own. OK. That’s a very loose paraphrase, but are people really this crazy for Missoni? A bunch of zig-zags?
I get it. It is aesthetically pleasing, but when people just go stupid over fabric, it tells you everything you need to know about the slice of WTF that exists in all of us.
For me, it’s sports. But I argue that at least I invest my crazy in the athletic competition of human beings.
Ebay, Craigslist and the likes are now rich with Missoni products from Target, an apparent tease toward those who have no Target access, or don’t know how to use the Target website!? We’re talking $40 blankets/comforters going for $200.
Someone in NYC was trying to sell a 3-speed bike for $1,500 bucks. If you’re gonna buy a bike and spend $1,500, don’t you dare buy anything with a Missoni design on it! Not that I would expect a dude to do so, but if you try and buy that crap for your lady, your man-card will still be revoked. If you spend $1,500 on an Italian bike, it better be a Bianchi.
This Missoni debut officially crashed the Target website, as the few who are without the violently red walls of a local retail location, or needed to get their Tuesday 6 a.m. fix, ran to their nearest Internet connection to buy a bunch of crap that they don’t need, because it’s finally at a price they can afford. $169 for a tote because it’s Missoni? Look hard for the tag, I’m sure that Italian design is still made in China.
