Milan Fashion Week: Missoni S/S 09
It wasn't a case of anything new or out of the (zig-zag-adorned) square for Italian fashion house Missoni this spring/summer - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it has shaped up to be one of my favourite collections so far this season. A palette of muted citrus colours combined with peach, chocolate and beige was very yummy indeed. There was a definite contrast between the two key shapes - one being very influenced by structured Japanese kimonos with obi belts; the other, being loose and voluminous 70s jumpsuits - but both were equally strong silhouettes. My favourite pieces (predictably perhaps) included the signature zig-zag knit - this V-neck dress is so easy to imagine yourself wearing over a bikini while lapping up the sunshine in Spain, while the knit swimsuit would work especially well as a bodysuit under peg-leg trousers or cuffed shorts. It's barely even autumn, yet Missoni has me already longing for summer!
