So you all probably heard about the Missoni for Target madness situation.
The entire collection sold out in minutes this week, almost immediately by the time the stores opened. The demand was so high it also brought down the target.com website for a day. Shelves were empty by 9am at my local Target. So sooo much for that!
Now if you want to get anything, they’re auctioning it off on ebay…Had to skip it and was actually quite disappointed. Why advertise something so much if you’re not going to make it available for the masses? That’s just plain Marketing 101, folks.
So today I consoled myself with a fabulous video from Prada. It’s called “Real Fantasies,” and uses all sorts of mixed media and collages (remember those in art class?)
It’s a great little frivolous treat! Prada may not be coming to Target anytime soon, but all the better. After this Missoni mess, I’d much rather save up for the original, if only in my dreams.
