MISSONI PRE-FALL 2016 COLLECTION

Ultra-chic, sensual, unmistakable and self-assured: pairing, mixing and matching increasingly refined workmanship techniques. These Missoni pieces comes in woven, inlaid,  or fringed knits. They are enlivened with stripes, bands, zigzags, and squares, and blocks that are  horizontal vertical and diagonal. Multi-coloured elements interact with solid colours in the play of other techniques such as ribbing, pleating and openwork with overlapping ruffles.

Knits in geometric patterns and floral-printed silk are paired – brought together with a crew-neck pullover or a shirt over a wrap-around skirt, alternating with slim pants and tunics ensembles;  pantsuits with small, single-breasted jackets and miniskirts; midi length dresses; mini-dresses worn over striped knit tights; and ultra-long, lame’ V-neck styles for evening. It’s a collection that uses different proportions, lengths and widths, favouring an essential, linear look that is curated down to the smallest details. An elegance that is also captured in clean and precise sartorial cuts.  Outerwear: oversized, single-breasted coats in checked knits, or striped s and flared cuts, updated duffel coats in wool with large floral prints, kimono-style cardigans with fringed seams, and mini coats in inlaid shearling with multi-coloured bands.

The Mary Janes and mini boots in black or coloured calfskin have a medium heel in striped, multi-coloured resin. Small, rectangular shoulder bags in leather and fabric are alternated with large two-handled bags in nylon with zigzags superimposed on floral motifs, bringing to life impeccably coordinated and accessorised combinations.
