Missoni Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Goes Heavy On Color and Texture
Missoni is an undisputed icon of knitwear so it was no surprise to see the brightly colored options done in knits on the Missoni spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear runway show. The Italian fashion giant has done a lot within their brand becoming well known for their designs and overall aesthetic.
As is the case with a lot of clothes, everything in the Missoni spring/summer 2017 collection is not all-inclusive for every body type. As an example the bikinis would not work out well for the more amply blessed, but they were certainly still beautiful workings of glittering design or earth-toned patterns. High cut bikini bottoms are definitely making a comeback as they were also shown on the Missoni runway for summer 2017.
The patterns included in the collection were strong and inspiring, both of which are expected from a brand as strong as Missoni, with a background as detailed as their knitwear products. Long cardigans and short dresses have been seen throughout the collection with a variety of striped options.
A stunning jumpsuit floated beautifully, accentuating the pattern of the material and adding another beautiful selection to the collection. There are column dresses, tank dresses in a lot of different lengths and floor-length dresses as well. The necklines varied as well from V-necks to off to criss-cross halters.
The Missoni spring 2017 runway show at Milan Fashion Week was streamed live on the main website for fans. People have expressed a love for the silhouettes as usual; the simplicity the Missoni was striving for was showing through very well for a brand that has never been low-key.
A clear favorite was the short knit striped dress with light and dark greys with light blues, greens and a bold orange red stripe towards the bottom of the very short dress. The detail that really set the appearance on another level was the maxi vest that went with it, elevating the look and compensating for the very short length.
One of the biggest things that were easily noticeable was the movement for the pieces – the hems floated freely accentuated by the models’ walk. The colors were richly colored and perpetually stunning in every piece of clothing on the Missoni runway from the top to the bottom.
This collection is beautiful, breathtakingly so in its hard earned simple silhouettes but bright spring and summer appearances. Angela Missoni was very clear on her vision – she wanted to see a more minimalistic version of her brand on the runway, and it is clear that as usual she has succeeded in doing so in a very fashionable way.
