Missoni presents its Pre-Fall 2017 collection
December 6, 2016: Holding on to it dynamic versatility and put-together manner of the 70s, the glamour of its knitwear composed of small elements, recurring tonalities and motifs mark a style that has returned as a fount of inspiration for Missoni and is visible in the latest collections from the 2017 season.
A fascinating array of themes, symbols and meanings have been reexamined and redeveloped for the Missoni Autumn 2017 Collection. A wardrobe articulated through essential and sensual forms, materials, colors and techniques, the silhouettes accentuate the body as seen in the frock coats and slim dresses, godet skirts or flared-hem trousers cut above the ankle and paired with short fitted knit-tailored jackets. Outfits are coordinated with double-breasted gilets, cardigans and polos or with turtlenecks in varying micro and macro patterns. Checks, vertical stripes, greek frets, space dyes or zigzags appear in a recurring range of graded shades alternating between cobalt and blue, white and black.
Long eveningwear ornamented with paillettes or ribbed lamé knits assembled in blocks are enriched, with their glimmering reflections and glamour, through the use of lace stitching, fringed hems and intricate techniques that overlap and misalign to create textural depth.
Berets and gilets in style garçon, bouclé knit boots or stockings worn with men’s platform shoes inlayed with three different-colored leathers finish off the looks from this collection; along with vibrant basics, graphic tote bags and bracelets that evoke knitwear as an adorning element.
