Oh My Massimo.

One Kings Lane. It’s that fantastic designer decor and home essentials daily discount website that, well, I seem to be too late in log on to. Yesterday, colorful and happy Missoni beach towels sold out in a few hours. All of them.

Missoni Beach Towels

Adieu Adieu Missoni Beach Towels.

After obsessing over all of the Sold Out labels at Missoni, I moved on to a more expensive event, the photography of Massimo Vitali. Born in Como, Italy, in 1944, Massimo tinkered as a photojournalist and film cameraman before turning his talents to large-scale photography. Massimo is renowned for his large-scale color photographs depicting the masses at leisure. His focus here is on Italian beaches. Some what similar to photographer David Zimmerman’s aerial views of people and places.

Now, I don’t know if any of those sunbathers are lying on Missoni beach towels, but Massimo’s perspective grabs my attention… and this sales event also Sold Out within hours!

His photographs sell for around $7,000, some commanding $30,000. One Kings Lane’s sales deal was for under $2,000!

Maybe it’s not meant to be for me, but these sales are two that I wish I had in my shopping cart. Guess I’m not in the fast lane. Non?
