Missoni Spring Summer 2011


without any logos or signature prints, one would still recognise a missoni outfit, and that is rather formidable. missoni showcased their spring summer 2011 collection in milan on friday. i really like the bursts of colors and seemingly clashing of prints but everything seemed to work so well in harmony. one thing that strikes me is the multi layering. the models must have a tough job wearing so many layers, and i know it is really warm and humid in milan now.

i thought the layering and appearance of cardigans and knits for a summer collection was rather odd, but a work of commercial genius. this collection would be expected in stores around january 2011 and available for sale till june 2011. in europe and america, that is still predominantly cold wintry months, so pieces like these will be expected to sell well. just a little observation i had. spring summer collections might not mean florals or linen anymore.

i was keen to see if the missoni x converse shoes would make an appearance, sadly no. however those colorful boat shoes do look fun. paired with shorts it brought a summery feel to the collection once again. a missoni knit is a classic investment piece. never seem to go out of style. really liking this collection.

  1. Some of the models look like they are twelve but Missoni is showcasing great work, highly original and very well dessigned, again.
