Catch the wind
Volumes shaped and reshaped at every step, define the energy of the Missoni Summer 2015 Woman and her joie de vivre. Light weight of the classic trench coat, oversized men’s shirts, wide pant-skirts, long dresses and high-waisted blouses, foulards and scarves coiled up and knotted to adorn hair.
Lightweight knits, feature openwork, intarsia and embroidery, doubled with nylon tulle. Broad stripes, softly blended, interact with floating decoupé petals. All over prints on hammered silk, shantung and chiffon.
Compositions of flowers in embroidered appliqués and intarsia knits. Polychrome palettes and graphic motifs evoke Pop Art silkscreens or Matisse-like collages. Ecrù and shades of pink, from yellow to the different tones of green all the way to turquoise, ending with mauve and purple with silver and ruby. The bold primary colours of summery landscapes blend together in pastel hues and fluorescent accents to the multicolour and monochromatic palette of the collection. Mesh calfskin lace-up shoes with coloured rubber sole and zipper, or thong sandals in mesh and shiny patent leather.
