For the past couple of weeks it's been all about Missoni for LUC.
We were really excited to be part of the Australian launch of Missoni Home 2016. Spence and Lyda in conjunction with Vogue Living held a great evening in Sydney where we were all lucky to hear Wanda Jelmini (the Creative Director of Missoni Home) speak passionately about not only this new collection but also her family and the philosophy behind the brand.
The high-end Missoni brand is renowned for it's innovative ideas, it's unique aesthetic and inventive weaving and colour combinations. But it is also a rare thing to be still operating strongly with now the 4th generation working and running the business.
LUC. has always proudly stocked the towel range of Missoni Home but this is just a very small part of the their range and we will soon be supplying the fabrics in store. Incredible weaves, bold colour combinations with their quintessential design ethic.
We were thrilled when we were told that Wanda wanted to visit Tasmania and our store and were proud to host an in-store event to hear Wanda once again talk so generously about the family and how some of the more complicated weaves are constructed.
LUC. is also now carrying the Missoni candle range in store. Five exquisite fragrances housed in distinctive Missoni glass vessels. With an 80hr burning time these natural soy candles burn slowly and emit very sophisticated scents. Fragrances including Florentine leather, Italian cyprus, to espresso and crushed peppercorn, the range has soft florals to masculine earthy scents. The range will sure to become a best seller in store.
We also have a new towel range to mark the 2016 launch. A number of new designs, some with the popular chevron pattern but others have new styles and weaves and simply beautiful colour combinations. The hand towels are already in store with the remainder of the range coming soon. There are a couple of designs proving to be very popular already!!
Missoni is a brand that works so well for us, it is fantastic quality and even though the colours are bold and the weaving is so unusual the products remain timeless. The designs of 50 years ago are still sought after and modern. As Wanda said, once you start with Missoni you are addicted...and it is true!
