    Summer 2014

    A POP’N'XOTIC FANTASY – The exotic magic of sari-sarongs. The effortless vibe of draping that flows liberally, adding movement to sleek looks. A taste of Japanese pop prints in bold colors, graphics, micro and macro scales. Re-igniting of the logo.

    Elements that co-exist in the style of a woman who loves to travel physically or fantastically and who conceives her wardrobe as a well-orchestrated mix of references, suggestions and experiences. A contemporary interpretation of fashion heritage.

    A taste of the four elements – water, earth, fire and air – that tell of her harmonious relationship with nature. Woven knitwear that symbolizes her bond with the Missoni world. Recurring key themes developed in many variations – macro and micro, lace or allover prints on silk, cotton and nappa leather, translated in knitwear. The interaction with an archive print that revisits the house’s logo to graphic effect.

    Surface texture that hails from perforated lace intarsia, embossed embroidery and see-through sequins that intersect the light. Polychrome fringed bands mix with the fluid consistency of the fabrics, setting off a series of linear silhouettes.

    Thigh-high slit pencil skirts cut below the knee that feature pleated borders in fluttering silk morph into sarongs. Shrunken shirts and jackets are cropped at the waist and alternated by oversize T-shirts. Knee length duster-cardigans are fastened by metallic knots. Soft pants cinch the ankle. Dresses gain movement given the one-shoulder constructions, asymmetrical hems, drapes. New pumped sleeves. Necklines enhanced by folded high knit bands.

    Graphic black-and-white effects frame a pop palette of vibrant glossy hues spanning orange, pink, purple, turquoise and electric blue. Looks are punctuated with sophisticated accessories, starting with low and high sandals with chiseled heels and enriched with multicolor bands and metal knots.

    Bangles are soft resin adorned with painterly insets in mesh knit or in dark metal and enamel. The new interpretation of the classic Missoni bag in soft calfskin and embossed satin or in black and white print. The Missoni sunglasses feature perforated bi-color frames.
