Initial reaction:

The Missoni knit goes on a pop art trip inspired by Mother Nature.

References:

Macro landscapes, enlarged water grid, the four elements.

Prints:

Graphic flocks of birds in all different colour combinations and print placements.

Stand out looks:

The graduated seafood green and orange fringing dresses, and the black knit insert leather skirts in bright acrylic paint colours. 

Accessories:

Resin bangles worn high up on the arms.

Invite:

Missoni provided useful hash tags on their invites - #zigzaggin #moments #… (Meaning make up your own.)

Most likely to:

Be worn on a spiritual ‘finding oneself’ journey in the most beautiful corners of the planet.

Least likely to:

Be seen on logo haters.  As per logomania's current resurgence in fashion, the word Missoni is abstracted as they resurrect an old typographic print.

Set:

Missoni zig zag rust coloured metal grills used to separate different areas of the colour, and a graphite zig zag patterned carpet in the space.  #inrustwetrust #zigzagging

Reminded us of:

Japanese wood block prints and the collars of kimonos, as Missoni does East Meets West in their own subtle way.
