Unique space-dye patchworks, small check and large polkadot patterns, multicolored tweed and bouclé, warm wool fibers and sophisticated lamé yarns, Greek fret and fringe detailing: distinct impressions from the Missoni A/W 2017 Collection dedicated to little girls; the budding followers of fashion which love to dress like their mothers while at school or on their days off. They move freely in their little dresses and coordinated outfits that can be casually put together, reinvented and interchanged for an infinite number of fashionable combinations.
Proposals for Autumn expand on patchwork and cloud-like motifs printed on jersey and soft pastel tones for an array of t-shirts and fleece tracksuits with zip-up jackets and knitted multicolored polkadot finishings. Variations of small checks and vertical Greek frets in knit continue throughout the collection on tiny flared dresses, worn over leggings with matching blazers and caban coats, as well as blocked skirts paired with solid-color t-shirts decorated with vibrant trimmings and multicolored fringe applications. Fringe detailing becomes a decorative element on sleeveless dresses and blazers in space-dye lamé lace for more formal occasions; establishing a leading theme for an autumn wardrobe rounded off by a small selection of ceremonial garments: dresses in white lace adorned with lamé finishings or combined with gold in zigzag patterns, as well as boleros and slacks in heavy jersey with gold detailing coordinated with knitted zigzag-patterned bags.
Other winter proposals adopt the spirit and colors of the Autumn 2017 Womenswear Collection; combining camel, red and blue in pieces imagined for a return to school. Comfortable and versatile dresses, blazers and caban coats are accessorized with berets à la garçonne and solid-color woven knapsacks with floral embroideries in multicolored wool, knit caps in space-dye or zigzag motifs, scarves with pom-pom finishings and drawstring bags. The black glitter from dresses embellished with Missoni knit detailing alternates with the red-toned checks of zip cardigans, tracksuits with ribbed knit finishings and quilted winter coats and batwing caban coats. The Mini Miss capsule collection, for little girls aged 2 to 10, includes a kaftan and four mini dresses trimmed in fringe, embroidered with polkadots or conceived as pullovers in multicolored bouclé wool.
For babies aged 0 to 12 months, variations of the patchwork and cloud-like prints on jersey in tones of pink and blue are used for short-and long-sleeved romper suits, onesies, t-shirts, dresses with bloomers, bibs, little caps and solid-color chenille-lined blankets with printed jersey borders. This lively mini collection is replete with a portion of the collection available in white chenille with printed jersey detailing, a Gold portion in knitted zigzag patterns that includes a small winter coat with floral embroideries and a white-and-gold lace dress and, finally, a capsule collection of cashmere space-dyes that includes a romper suit, pullover, short pant, blanket, scarf and cap.
