Coogi the Oz Missoni?

In Australia the House of Coogi doesn't get the recognition it rightly deserves. Is it not our Missoni?
I was quite shocked when I went to New York in 2000 and Harlem was paved in Coogi. In Australia it is relegated to Airport Duty Free and Tourist Markets.
Such a shame, as the knitwear they design although not to everyone's taste is a work of art.
So how excited was I to find this Vintage Coogi shirt dress with the most Killa Aztec print last week.
Missoni design some lovely stuff but those uptight Milanese could never come up with this crazy print and colour combo. Australian gold.
