Back in May Missoni teamed up with Bugaboo to create the most fashionable strollers I’ve ever seen. Perhaps it was their way of getting the market ready for what they were going to launch next – Missoni Baby. Designer baby clothing has been around for a while but it’s reaching a fever pitch lately with recent children’s wear launches from Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Versace and now, Missoni. The famous zigzag knits will be shrunken down for little girls featuring bikinis and sundresses.
I have to confess I’ve never really been a fan of Missoni – I just don’t like the mulitcolor zig zag – it’s a bit bohemian for my taste. The Bugaboo prints they did happen to be my favorite Missoni product I’ve ever seen. I think it’s because on the Bugaboo strollers, the Missoni prints were more graphic and bold. Nonetheless, if you shrink anything down to child size it always ends up looking cuter and I imagine the same will be true for Missoni Baby. The new line launches for Spring 2012.
