Spring/Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear
September 08, 2016
For spring 2017 the collection is all about playing back and forth between edgy style and style coherence; material and fabric finishes. These elements take this fresh, upbeat and ultra unique sense of glam to the next level.
Multicolor/material-mix intarsia knits create striking details draping to form simple edges. Severity elegance marks both blouses and organza dresses where exquisitely precise cuts identify two make-a-statement types of collar: one complete with double rectangular-ribbon crossover bow, the other a mock-turtleneck style. There are also flowy lines in the jumpsuits and skirts, in the top pieces with fullness in back, and — primarily — in the long sleeveless v-neck dress - in a stunning high-sheen shade of blue, it’s a must of the collection.
Materials create a genuine sensation thanks to semi-chunky relief effects, intarsia designs, novel takes on all-time favorite zigzags in multiple styles, including a particular ombré vanisé effect. Similarly, a chunky feel adds an extra special, even abstract plus to jacquard designs. Relief jacquards also enhance cotton twills and super shiny fabrics with color-contrast stripes, while medium-big polkadots overlapping in different colors present a subtler kind of relief effect.
Colors are an irresistible part of the M Missoni message, always making pure kaleidoscopic magic. Hues go from vivid orange, pale azure, pastel yellow, cyclamen red, lilac, dark sky blue, birch or irish green to much quieter shades — chalk white and light gray, for example — then all the way to eternal black.
