Missoni: Meet the The Fashion Family Dynasty That Crashed Target (Photos)

Missoni for Target


Missoni totally broke Target. But thankfully, it was just temporary.

The iconic Italian fashion house partnered with Target on an affordable collection full of clothing for moms, dads, and kids, items for the kitchen, the bath and the bedroom. The items were so anticipated, so in demand, so lusted after that the desperate shoppers not only crashed the website which made it impossible to shop for most of the debut day, but the stores were packed with shoppers trying to get their hands on the Missoni look for less.  Items that once only the rich, famous or those who just like to splurge on high end fashion could afford. Celebrities are some of Missoni’s biggest fans such as Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie and Demi Moore just to name a few.  But the Missoni family, they are celebrities in their own right.  Who are the Missonis?

The company was founded by in 1953 by Ottavio aka “Tai” and Rosita Missoni. In the 90s Rosita admitted she had lost interest in fashion and passed on the reins to her daughter Angela, her sibling are also involved Vittorio is in charge of marketing and Luca did some designing for the menswear line.

And while the newest Missoni generation may wear lots of their families clothing, they’re more interested in the stage and screen. Luca’s daughter Jennifer Missoni is an actress and has appeared on the TV shows Damages and Law & Order. Angela’s daughter Margherita is an actress and model and has been the face of the Target line.
