Can't get to Edinburgh to sleep in the new Missoni Hotel? Make it as far as London and you'll at least be treated to a Missoni retrospective. Suzy Menkes visits the the show at the Estorick Collection, titled "Workshop Missoni: Daring to be Different," and pronounces it "an expression of the joy of color and the rhythm of pattern that is Missoni’s heritage — allied to a modern art movement of which the fashion house became a part." Curiously, the exhibit closes on September 20, right in the middle of London Fashion Week. [NYT]
