Men's Winter 2013 Close Up

An overview of colours, patterns and new fabrics featured in Missoni Men's Winter 2013 Collection

Rugged surfaces in warm colour palettes are composing autumnal landscapes with a raw feeling. The visual character of materials and patterns created by Missoni for Men's Winter 2013 looks to the family's artisanal knitwear heritage, continuing to innovate exclusive knit techniques while a casualwear material such denim has been introduced this season.

 

A collaboration with Jean Machine sees the denim jacket and five-pocket jeans enter the collection, with the denim jacket working as a layering item adding new texture under an overcoat or padded vest in a tartan loom-knit in a cozy composition of wool, mohair goat, nylon. Missoni's emblematic chevron is woven on fine looms into a compelling dégradé pattern with a fine tapestry feel in camel, wool, and nylon.

 

A micro diagonal weave in blue tone-on-tone Indigo cotton fabric elevates the informal denim look through its refined encounter with classic button-down shirt and a subtle stipple effect. A rough looking shaded zigzag knit is applied on a leather covered grey slipper, this seasons newness produced in an exclusive collaboration with C.B. Made in Italy. In this collection wool and denims are discovering new analogies and a common ground in a intermixture of warm rural chromaticity and a solid urban attire.
