Well who knows? Maybe Pucci designed this fabric...
or maybe Loomskill was "inspired" by Pucci.
Either way... this is how I picture it being worn (click to enlarge). Note the vintage photo of the woman driving the convertible on the bag -- she's probably wearing a real Pucci scarf! And for what it's worth, I picture this outfit on the new superintendent in our school district! She's got style.
Loving that new Target commercial. It's so in my 1967-1974 zone! Spy music plays and a girl sneaks around as though deeply involved in espionage - but that doesn't matter. There are zig zags, chevrons, beautiful bargello flamestitch everywhere - her clothes, her towels, her suitcase, her shoes, her rug!
It seems Target will be introducing a collection designed by Missoni, an Italian fashion house popular since the late 1950s for their colorful, patterned knitwear. They've timed the launch of the line with New York's fashion week. The collection will be available for a limited time only.
You gotta love it... especially the bike.
I'm inspired. Maybe I'll put aside what I'm currently working on and whip together some Missoni inspired clothing. I've got a few pieces of vintage fabric that seem to fit the bill.
Creativity and I have traveled a long road together. I attended BYU for four+ years studying Interior Design. Over the years, I've worked at a wallpaper studio, paint store, art gallery, and fabric store. I've sewn all my life and have assembled a ridiculous amount of vintage fabric. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and have four remarkable children. I spent thirteen years on my local school board and my husband is an outstanding public middle school teacher, so education is a familiar topic at our house. And now I work a few hours a day as a teacher's aide and love it. Welcome to my on again off again blog about these things.
