Missoni SS14

Zig zagging to a place of pop 'n' exotica, in languid fringing and acrylic brights

TextSusie LauPhotographyLea Colombo

Initial reaction:

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


Macro landscapes, enlarged water grid, the four elements.


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. 


Resin bangles worn high up on the arms.


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.


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.
