Is it a knit or a woven? That is the question you could have been left with after the Missoni fall 2014 collection presented this week during Milan fashion week.
With the history of Missoni anchored deeply in knitted fabrics, it was fitting that the collection for fall was dominated with knitted materials. An exploration lead by Angela Missoni to reinterpret ways to reinvent knits for Fall 2014.
The opening look was an oversized coat with compact, boiled wool with an equally oversized herringbone, a play on the signatures of the classic Missoni herringbone.
The clever color stories flowed together nicely going from autumnal burnt umber paired with caution orange, and the use of color was stronger than the Fall 2013 collection. Remember this?
I loved the look of the printed mohair jacket in a large scale. It almost felt like pieces of glass melded together into a stained glass.
Then we moved into an almost Mimosa colored yellow worn by Hanne Gaby, mixed with pearl grey and mid century modern feeling muted shades.
The long column dress with abstract color blocking using space dyed yarns and transitioning to solid color almost patchwork intarsia felt really cool for fall.
The blues walked the runway next, and while we have had enough of cobalt blue in monochromatic looks, the use of French blue as pops of color was a really refreshing for fall.
Other notable and cheerful pops of color were the winter yellow, and pops of shades of greens.
The modern Missoni girl is urban and loves to mix colors in fun and witty ways. She’s polished but at ease in smart styles.
