Winter Essentials

Surfers' world is the main inspiration for Missoni men's winter 2014 collection

The Missoni man, for Autumn/Winter 2014, draws his inspiration from wayfaring surfers riding their tidal wave around the world and his wardrobe reflects this unabating pursuit to be emotionally connected to nature.

 
This transitional offering features Missoni’s exclusive, loom knits in noble fibers, all produced in Sumirago, which are exemplified this season in a softly tailored, compact, cashmere, checked coat; Japanese-inspired wrapped shawl neck cardigan lined with shearling; loose fitted trousers and pullovers and Missoni’s iconic knit blazers all utilizing silhouettes, colour tones and textures that evoke the effortless and relaxed lifestyle of young, spirited surfers.

 
The distinctive use of deep, earthy colours resonates throughout the collection where charcoals, slates, midnight blues, olives and mineral browns hint at the rugged coastline the Missoni man has traversed. The use of maple reds, saffrons and teals that liken the awe-inspiring  hues  of a hypnotic sunrise sublimely elevate the character and essence of the collection.
