The shows have been in Milan for almost a week and for me one of the most unexpected runways was the Missoni Fall 2013 Collection. I wondered how the show would play out give the turmoil in the Missoni family following the disappearance of CEO Vittorio Missoni. But designer Angela Missoni was able to keep things together, and produced a fresh collection for a label rooted in traditions.
Structure was replaced by a soft lounge feel— complete with long robs, silk pants and cozy knits.
Sheer detailing and patchwork fishnets added another element to the looks giving them a fresh, youthful perspective.
Even the more formal pieces communicated an ease as the signature Missoni knits were woven in blacks another tonal palates.
I really like how comfy all of these pieces look. Perfect for fall, the collection leaves me wanting to snuggle up! And, while there are many techniques employed throughout the show, it didn’t overwhelm. The traditional Missoni weaves felt reimagined and above all contemporary—a term I don’t usually associate with the label.
Of course this is just my impression. What do you think of the Missoni Fall 2013 Collection? Would you cuddle up in these Italian wares?
