Designer and knitwear connoisseur Missoni created something…special (again) for Pre-Fall 2010. There’s an alluring look that draws me to Missoni – the femininity, corkiness, and layering are just a few adjectives to describe my feelings.
The designer House based in Milan, Italy began as a manufacturer of textiles and knits, but has expanded into a complete conglomerate over the years- including a soon-to-open hotel chain: Hotel Missoni in 2012. In 1998 the brand launched M. Missoni, a less expensive line, which could not have come at a better time during this economic crisis. For Pre-Fall, Anglea Missoni stuck to the roots of the label, playing with geometric shapes and never shying away from color usage. Let’s face it, she’s the layering queen; something like Hobo-Chic. Raw material usage including wool, cotton, silk, and linen; Missoni will never change. On the contrary, they can only be more innovative and evolve. Just check out those leggings and shoulder-length gloves! ~C.M.
