The Missoni language, spoken in the present, by a new author. Lemmas that are added, evolve, transform, in continuity with what has been and projected for what must now be lived. Words and sensations that materialize on today’s bodies and ways for a unique experience with infinite interpretations. A constant, original and personal approach obtained through the multifaceted vision of the creative director Filippo Grazioli for the Spring/Summer 2023 Collection.
A ray of light that crosses a prism divides itself into the multiple colors that compose it, thus finding a new identity. In the same way, the collection enhances the individual components to obtain an original harmony in the whole. Color, the foundation of everything, is explored in search of its essence. A chromatic decomposition that is only momentary because it finds unity in intense monochromes and in the forms that define a new concept of order with clear, vertical and short silhouettes that communicate energy and awareness. A discipline that leads to tangible, sensual, joyful physicality enhanced through sophisticated transparencies, necklines and slits. The result of this inductive and then deductive analysis of the elements leads to the conquest of a natural spontaneity, an authentic and immediate behavior that must be lived in the present in an essential way.
In a suspended space illuminated by the spotlights, time is marked by photographic shots. Among the protagonists of the fashion show Lara Stone and Joan Smalls are preparing to open and close the debut of Filippo Grazioli. The atmosphere is engaging and pervades the moments preceding the staging of the new Missoni spirit.
