Missoni presented their Spring/Summer 13 menswear on a sand runway, to enrich its travel theme. Dazed Digital caught up with Angela Missoni ahead of the show to talk inspiration...

"This boy is a traveller, he dreams of travel and he wants to have a wardrobe to feel at ease. The silhouette is still slim but he starts to wear more comfortable trousers. And you will find new pieces to add to his wardrobe like the safari jacket, bermudas, because every season I like to work in a way that enriches a man's wardrobe – I don’t think really change totally and they would never throw their wardrobe away, it doesn't feel right.

This season you'll find a mixture of western and eastern inspirations, south-eastern Asia. The knit being a very, very light texture and we're working with iridescent linen, technical yarn like compact cotton or very particular cashmere.

Patterns are jacquard with very fine designs and tone-on-tones – I’m using shading from sand to khaki and olive green, blues in a new way and touches of coral or red, poppy red, or emerald, saffron.

I really love the suits – after the success we've had with the blazer, this season I’m introducing also a full suit, in a very light knit."
