Micro and macro geometrical elements in vivid colors. All over or placed over black or white they create a spectacular variety of optical effects. Polichromatic bands ‘pointillés’, vibrant abstract articulations of stripes, greeks, zigzags evoking Bridget Riley’s Op Art or even Roy Lichtenstein’s Pop and interacting with a rivisited vintage Missoni’s animalier print.
Unmistakely based on the art of matching, opposing, superimposing textures, patterns, prints and solid colors and assigning to the knitwear a key rule, it is a collection including suits with single or double brested jackets over mens taylored slim trousers. Roundneck cardigan coats over matching shorts. Mini or micro sleeveless dress and chemisier. Bias long skirts. See-thru black dresses over striped multicolor tank-top dresses. Long to the elbow sleeves and wide round neckline, animalier print mini dresses or either long, sleeveless with asymmetrical hemline. Pants and blouson twin sets. Space-dyed deep v-necked pull, long sleeved t-shirts, tank-tops.
Framed and underlined by knit black ribbons, the outfits are essential, linear but very feminine. They are like passe-partout of a classic elegance becoming freerer, more versatile and contemporary, which can be articulated in a variety of possible combinations, interpreted in several personal ways like a work of art. And that look uniquely distinguished by blocks and bonds of amber, aquamarine, violet and aubergine. Emerald, periwinkle, orange and fuchsia. Geranium, powder, lemon.
Bright tones and sharp motives which are interacting with the deep radical black of the hemlines or either with the black and white of the backgrounds. And which this collection move, define, turn on. From the outfits to the accessories: the double handle bags and the smaller rounded shoulder bags in pinstriped calf leather, with a large tassel as a decorative detail. And the matching sandals in bright colors, with sole and heel of white rubber, which evoke the mens’ traditional tassel loafer, highlighting the natural, informal, effortless elegance of these Missoni looks.
