Woven and knit fabrics in different layers and mixes. A lovely palette of solid tones and melange shades. Horizontal and vertical stripes, classic greek fret and zigzag patterns. these are the elements identifying a spring summer 2011 M Missoni collection that draws styles and moods from the house’s rich archive of ready-to-wear. recovering an early ‘60s flair for low v necks, flat pleats, flare hems, long cardigans, canneté-drawstring vests, little jackets and crewneck coats, then reelaborating the same in a totally today key.
So, vintage Missonis offered a wealth of cues for the definition of a sophisticated wardrobe - at once free&easy and edgy - making the most of contrasts between lustrous ultralight silk jerseys and thicker heavier matte cottons and linens.
For summery jumpsuits plus lots of little dresses, micro shorts, tank tops, shirts and polos. exclusive pieces in unmistakable interplays of burgundy and aqua green, soft hues of blue gray, blush pink and orange, sand, sepia and brown tones.
To echoe an elegance à la Charlotte Rampling or à la Lauren Hutton.
Clothes easy to coordinate with the new pinstripe denim or multicolor vertical stripe cotton jeans that narrow smartly at ankles and that sport in back the M Missoni logo on a small ribbed piqué plaque, so marking one of the brand’s cool new features.
The collection also includes a line of specially created accessories: drawstring shoulder bags in leather and canvas with stripe print lining, stripe canvas shoulder bags with rope straps, sweet raffia and jute crochet purses, all complete with matching sling-backs and sandals (high heels or flats) in the same materials, patterns and colors. and lastly, gold metal and lacquer necklaces with cherry and strawberry shape charms, to add an extra flourish of freshness to the season’s great new looks.
