BACKSTAGE SS14: MISSONI

The Missoni woman was the fashion equivalent of a well-travelled stamp collection—a stylish intercontinental tour guide.

Mad about Missoni—this season the Missoni woman was a worldly traveller and kept a piece of each destination on hand as a fashionable souvenir.  The first look introduced a graphic logomania blouse, donning “MISSONI” all over like we’ve seen in other collections (Alexander Wang, DKNY) this season. The skirt was a graphic flying bird print, reminiscent of the traditional Missoni zigzag print. Tribal flat sandals completed the spiritual-chic ensemble. Dresses featured Oriental details with kimono inspired shift dresses and blouses. The aforementioned bird print was shown throughout in varied styles—silk skirts, crepe blouses and leather streaked pencil skirts. The prints displayed pop art influences as well as exotic cultural references. The look was suited to host a Burning Man dinner party. Other logo carrying pieces were PVC and silk skirts, silk graphic tees and heavy plastic bangles.
