From Housewares to Housing: Missoni Set to Design Condominiums in Manila

By  August 23, 2011

While many stylish individuals furnish their homes with designer wares, Missoni Home is taking the concept one step further. The Italian fashion house is partnering with Filipino real estate developer Century Properties to design the interior decor and amenity spaces of a condominium building in Manila. This isn’t the first time Century Properties has looked to the runway for inspiration; it recently collaborated with Versace Home to design The Milano Residences, which are already 75% sold.

“We are extremely proud and honored to be working with the Missoni family for one of our new projects,” said Century Properties managing director, Marco Antonio. “The Missoni brand has endured in the industry because it was not afraid to innovate amidst existing global trends. And like the Missonis, we aim for our brand to transcend future generations.”

Since these designer residences are proving to be a hot commodity overseas, it probably won’t be too long before the make their way to Europe or even stateside. In the meantime, Missoni for Target will have to do!
