I’m super excited about the highly anticipated Missoni for Target collaboration hitting stores September 13th! The line is quite extensive and is one of the best Target designer collaborations I’ve seen in a while. I seriously love every single piece! The line is full of colorful and graphic home, fashion and lifestyle items adorned with Missoni’s signature flame stitch patterns and bold prints. Check out this video featuring the uber-stylish Margherita Missoni giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the collection which is sure to add some flair to your wardrobe and home. This is one Target collab that is sure to sell out quickly so I’m definitely going to stalk my local target store on launch day to get first dibs on the good stuff! And if you happen to live in New York you’re in luck because Target will be launching a special pop up shop in conjunction with Fashion’s Night Out that will enable you to shop the collection early! You can get the deets here. Below are my must-have home items from the line and to view the full look book click here.

If you didn’t already know, InStyle recently unveiled a new design with its August Issue and it looks amazing. The magazine now has a younger voice and a strong emphasis on personal style. The fashion pages are better than ever…cleaner and more thoughtfully edited. But as much as I love the fashion, I love the magazine’s new home section 10 times more! The new and improved home section which is now called Life, etc (formerly Life & Home) includes the tag line “Because style isn’t just about what you wear.” A line that holds true here at So Haute, since this blog really is all about stylish living. Life, etc features more pages than in the old design which is really making me wish Time Inc would just bring back InStyle Home! Sigh!
The September issue just hit newsstands and as expected Life, Etc is full of chic interiors and inspiration for stylish living. Here are a few highlights:
The issue provides a peek inside designer Michael Kors’ fashionable West Village penthouse, above, which was designed by Glenn Gissler. This story alone is makes picking up a copy of the issue completely worth it. Kors’ place is amazing and there are plenty more photos in the magazine including shots of his insanely beautiful terrace.
The modern and airy East Village apartment of actress Lisa Edelstein was also featured. Above is her living room…I’m obsessed with her floral printed Harem carpet from The Rug Company.
The perennially chic Margherita Missoni was also profiled. In the two-page feature, Missoni discusses her move from New York to Paris and also highlights a few of her favorite finds for the home. There’s also a photo of her family’s Paris apartment where she currently lives…the interior architecture is incredible!
Other September issue highlights include:
*A feature on Desperate Housewives star Kyle MacLachlan’s dinner party to celebrate his new wine label, Perused by Bear.
*A round-up of stylish, eco-friendly furnishings and accessories for the office.
*Etiquette tips for hosts and party guests from fashionable types like Colin Cowie and Jonathan Adler and more!
Ok, now off to the newsstands! Go check out the issue and let me know what you think!
