Missoni for Roche Bobois
Looking through the FT's always sumptuous weekend magazine, How to Spend It, I came across an ad for Roche Bobois. They had a cold and imposing storefront in the little Chicago suburb where I grew up. Everything seemed very sleek and modern, black leather and chrome. I remember, when I was very young, walking past there on the way to the bakery for a smiley-face cookie. I don't think it's there anymore, but this ad caught my eye, as it seems they are doing a collaboration with Missoni.
I noticed the gorgeous colors and patterns first, before I realized it was Roche Bobois. It seems very different from my early memories - warm, inviting, and totally fun! Don't you just want to fling yourself down onto one of those couches?
