Missoni for Target is "real Missoni". Missoni for Missoni is "real Missoni". I have seen both and quality varies in both lines- as does taste levels (I have a love/hate relationship with the colors and design palette of classic missoni). Some of the snobbiest designers have some of their products made in China- Coach, LV, and so on. The Missoni family I am sure is not behind the sewing machine on either line of products but they sign-off on both lines. Unless you are purchasing couture you are buying a mass-produced product. I think that buying them for cheap is more responsible than forking out big bucks on similar merchandise. To say you will only buy "real missoni" sounds a bit off to me. To say you will only buy missoni that seems well made and is attractive to you makes more sense. Now, onto the "ebayers make me so mad group" (and I have not yet sold one piece on ebay buy may unload some of it there eventually)-everyone had the same opportunities to buy. Get up early, stay up late at night and if you missed out then that is just the way it goes. There are ebayers who missed out too. Target runs a business for profit, Missoni runs a business for profit, and ebayers run a business for profit. Ebayers are only selling what folks are buying and it is a free marketplace. Everyone has to make a living and it is not like the ebayers are buying up all the water in the world and profiting on it. They are folks just making a fair working living. Business is business no matter where your workplace is. Some of those sellers also contribute a portion of the proceeds to charity- did Target? It is funny what gets us going in the fashion and status world we live in- anyone seen how much a real Pan Am hat goes for right now on Ebay?! My product reviews:
