MFW S/S11: Missoni

By  September 27, 2010

A plethora of geometrics and statements made its way down the Milan runways yesterday, marking the new direction of the Missoni design house.

Filling the collection with tribal meets the rest of the world on acid, patterns and shapes of the most obscure formation were used on smocks, caftans and simple line dresses.

Yet it wasn’t just the patterns that were shouting for attention this time, declarations of  “shake your rump” and “Let your backbone slip” were loud and proud across the collection. Has the Missoni house been hanging out with Henry Holland? Probably not and it is more likely to be the work of Angela’s daughter Margherita exerting her own style on the family business. Either way this was just the first step in the new Missoni journey.
