Missoni for Target Musings

This may be old news to some, but Target recently announced that it's next designer collaboration will be with Missoni. Great news for those who love the designer's mod look and signature zig-zag graphics. The new line will be akin to the Liberty of London and Calypso St. Barth lines, as it will extend to items other than clothing, such as home decor and luggage.

The announcement had me curious as to whether Missoni for Target will offer plus size clothing. If you hadn't yet noticed, the recent Calypso St. Barth for Target line includes plus size clothing items, which if I'm not mistaken, is a first for the "designer" Target lines. This is great news, of course, but there is one caveat: plus sizes are only available online. Add this to the annoying list of retailers that only offer the plus sizes online. I do have hope, however, that the Calypso St. Barth line will sell enough in plus to convince Target to offer the Missoni items in-store. Personally, shipping charges and the inability to try garments on often prevent me from buying in the first place! I do think it's great news, however, that the extended sizes are beginning to be included in the designer collaborations, so let's hope Missoni follows suit either way.
