Missoni missing in flight over Venezuela

I have been surprised at the lack of coverage over the missing plane containing fashion icon Vittorio Missoni, 3 other passengers and two crew which disappeared over Venezuela at the beginning of January. I only stumbled on it by accident

Details are sketchy and the circumstances even sketchier. Officially no plane has been found. If our worst fears are realised what will this mean for the Missoni label?

Fashion houses and labels do survive such tragedies – Versace and McQueen spring to mind instantly but they are never quite the same without their guiding lights – the designers at the heart of the empire. Hopefully this one will have a happy ending, but so far, the prognosis is not looking good.
