Owner of Missoni fashion house missing: Vittorio Missoni of the Italian fashion label Missoni is missing after the plane he, his wife and a handful of others were aboard lost contact. The plane embarked Friday on the typically half-hour flight from Los Roques to the international airport near Caracas, Venezuela, according to The New York Times.
Missoni, known for its kaleidoscopically colored patterns, earned attention in 2011 with its capsule collection at Target, which sold out at many locations within hours of its release and escalated traffic to Target.com so quickly that it crashed the website.

Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration a flop ... but why?: Two retailers at opposite ends of the shopping spectrum teaming up to bring shoppers house goods, clothes and accessories by 24 top designers was hyped for months. Now it's still in the news -- for not living up to the talk. Just weeks after its launch, many selections are severely marked down at Target.com. Bloggers, consumer reporters and fashionistas are attributing the mega-capsule collection's lackluster performance to too many pieces by too many designers, higher-than-average prices for Target and poor display in stores. Others found some pieces too different from designers' usual offerings. Really, Oscar de la Renta ... a dog bowl?

Spain and Italy also recently passed similar regulations. Steven Kolb, chief executive of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, told media that no such bans are planned for models in the United States.
