Missoni Discounted

We don't get across the park often but one reason to take the bus across 79th Street is Filene's Basement. The merchandise isn't as interesting or diverse as Century 21 but you don't have to deal with crowds or tourists either.

This week friends told us that Filene's received a major shipment of Missoni summer clothing that should not be missed. Swimsuits, which run about $320 at the Madison Avenue boutique, range from $99 to $130 at the Basement. Beach towels-- a great hostess gift-- are $30. There are also lots of traditional Missoni patterned and knit dresses.



Yes, the prices are good but after a while one wonders how much Missoni can a person wear without feeling like they are wearing the same thing over and over. So scout it out and just pick your favorites because like everything moderation is key.

Yes, and the Filenes at Union Square received the most amazing assortment of Missoni summer dresses.

Union Square was still pretty well stocked today. There were sandals and beach bags and towels along with mens and womens wear. Some of the items were Missoni sport which I have never seen in a retail store before.

Saks has a decent selection of M Missoni on sale now too. Bought a cardigan for a little over $200.
