Missoni love for the bebe.

The news that the Missoni for Target is launching in the US has many of my favourite bloggers a buzz with delight. I wish it was making it's way here. Unfortunately it's not to be and I fear that the prices for the collection on eBay will be exorbitant.

I have, however, still made sure there will be Missoni in the baby's life. Yesterday I picked up the Missoni for Bugaboo fabric set for the Cameleon. I originally saw the sample when we visited Bugaboo HQ in Los Angeles - I have to say before that I was a bit so-so about it but in the flesh it's spectacular. I turned to Mr K at the time and said "if we have a girl I am 100% getting that." He said it was fine - we were both convinced it was a boy at that time so no dramas.

Cue our 19 week scan and it looks like Little Mr Kitty is in fact a Miss so the order went in and it arrived this week. I am very excited, even though it will be approximately 9 weeks (if she's on time) before it makes it's first outing.

What a pretty box! I will keep it to put the baby's "things" in...

In support of the theory that all the best people have Missoni for Bugaboo, Mr K saw a picture in a magazine at the Obstetricians yesterday of Rachel Zoe with her Missoni Cameleon. He said that it was ok for her to have one but if he sees a Kardashian with it I have to sell it. Apparently he has standards (I personally love the Kardashians). One of the areas we must agree to disagree.

Mr K and Mr SSG are cut from the same cloth re RZ and the Kardashians!

The set looks wonderful! Would suit either a baby boy or girl IMHO. Agree that it does look much better from your real life photos than the ads I've seen.

What a fabulous piece of architecture the Missoni pram is!

I laughed out loud at Mr K's comment re: the Kardashians!

I have to agree with mr kitty, i hope the kardashians dont ruin it for the rest of us!

Lovely! I agree with SSG, your pics make it look much better than the ads :)

Ahaha! Cudos to Mr Kitty for knowing who the Kardashians are.
Anyway, once i knew Bugaboo was doing a Missoni collaboration, i immediately ordered my set and picked it up last week. I have a baby boy and it suits him so it's not too girly.

I'll be on the lookout for fellow Missoni x Bugaboo mummies around Chatswood or the City!

Congrats on expecting a baby girl, how lovely! The Missoni cover is fab, so wish I had had nice print, you do get to spend a lot of time with the pram!! xx
