Designer Aesthetic: Missoni

I visited the Missoni store in LA a few weeks ago and became obsessed with the design of the outside structure.  I love how they used their signature woven pattern, that is used in their knits and home accessories, as a part of the store’s architectural design.  Amazing.  The photo below is of Margherita Missoni relaxing in her Missoni filled home in Milan.




Designer Aesthetic: Azzedine Alaia

One of my favorite fashion designers is Azzedine Alaia.  I love his architectural take on clothing and accessories.  I saw a few photos of his Paris apartment and this living room shot made me think about some of his clothing designs found here.  There are so many similarities as far as overall design aesthetic goes. The lines of the  blush pink dress and the amazing couch, the pattern in the white belt and the wire pattern of the Eames-like chair, and the simple but structured black dress and the black chair in the far back corner.  I could go on….
