Pottery Barn Kids, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands, launched today an exclusive product collaboration with celebrated tastemaker and stylish mom, Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos. The Margherita Missoni for Pottery Barn Kids collection of home décor for nursery, bedroom, and playroom, was inspired by the playful spirit of childhood. The capsule collection, which is Margherita’s first foray into children’s home furnishings, is now available online at www.potterybarnkids.com and Pottery Barn Kids stores nationwide on January 20th, with prices ranging from $19-$399.
Composed of over 50 pieces spanning bedding, furniture, decorative accessories, wall décor, lighting and essentials for nursery and new parents, the Margherita Missoni for Pottery Barn Kids collection exudes Margherita’s love for bright colors, bold patterns, and unique accents. The collection is designed to be versatile and encourages mixing and matching of different pieces to create a distinctly personal and unique look. The thoughtfully chosen materials and intricate details, including wicker, embroidery, pom-poms and fringe, showcase Margherita’s imaginative design philosophy. Margherita’s rich Italian heritage, family traditions, and eclectic design influences are seamlessly infused into every piece of the collection, from lullaby sentiment sheets to statement pillows, and are inspired by her sons’ nurseries and her own childhood keepsakes. Standout pieces include the Daisy Pouf, Daisy Mirror, and Daisy Pom Pom Quilt. Each feature Margherita’s namesake flower, the daisy, which is a signature in her children’s clothing collection, Margherita Kids.
“Collaborating with Pottery Barn Kids was such a joy and a natural fit for me, as it brought together playful design and quality craftsmanship to create a beautiful collection for kids and baby,” said designer Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos. “The collection is comfortable, colorful, and it evokes the same sense of freedom I feel when dressing myself and my children – mixing, matching and creating something that is unique to your own sense of style.”
Born in Northern Italy, Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos, is the eldest daughter of Angela Missoni, Creative Director of the renowned Missoni brand, and the granddaughter of the house’s founders. Having grown up in the idyllic countryside of Sumirago, amidst a family of fashion designers, She developed a keen eye and a unique sense of personal style from a very young age. She also dreamed of becoming a designer like the women in her family. After University, Amos studied theater in New York, then moved to Paris and Rome to pursue a career in acting.
During this time, Amos also functioned as Missoni Brand Ambassador. Amos eventually settled back in Sumirago and began consulting on important projects, and eventually joined the Missoni creative team as the Designer of Accessories, Swim, and Missoni Girls. Amos then met her husband, Eugenio, a race car driver, and shortly thereafter started a family of her own. Following the birth of her two sons, the fashion darling brought her innate sense of style, entrepreneurial spirit, and personal experience as a mom to her distinguished kidswear collection, Margherita Kids, which launched in March 2015. Amos is frequently featured in pages of women’s fashion magazines around the world for her own personal style & fashion. She regularly appears on best-dressed lists, which has led to additional collaborations for both herself and the Margherita Kids brand.
“Margherita’s spirited approach to design and her use of print and pattern brings a wonderful sense of whimsy to her collection designed in collaboration with Pottery Barn Kids,” said Jennifer Kellor, executive vice president, Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen. “We are excited to debut a collection inspired by her passion for creating beautiful and playful pieces for the nursery, kids’ room and beyond.”
