Missoni recently entered the fragrance market. With an experience of over 50 years in the fashion and luxury industry, moving into the perfume market makes perfect sense and will most likely be a terrific success.

Repeated patterns coexist and support one another: roses and cubes, violets and chevrons, flecks of colour and animal motifs. […]

Giorgio Armani followed in Christian Dior’s hallowed footsteps, when he created a Swarovski crystal exclusively for his use. The “Diamond Leaf” stone was given a special coating to give a metallic, shadowy effect and was then showcased on the finale dress at Armani’s autumn/winter 07/08 show in Milan. The designer said, “Swarovski crystal brings a touch of […]
