Missoni Fall 2014–After last season’s ocean inspired prints, the Missoni woman gets bundled up for the Italian fashion house’s fall-winter 2014 collection. Angela Missoni delivered the label’s signature knits as color-blocked dresses, ribbed skirts and tweeds. Color is very autumnal–brown, yellow and orange plays off calming blue and green hues. The mix of shades brings another dimension to an already layered wardrobe where the Missoni woman dons roomy trousers, trenches and mohair sweaters. For accessories, it’s all about practical luxe with chunky-heeled ankle boots as well as mini bags that double as utility belts.
Missoni Throwback–This Thursday we’re taking a look back at Missoni’s spring-summer 2006 campaign. The advertisements featured American actress Drew Barrymore photographed by famed duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Missoni is well-known for its prints and the label’s colorful patterns certainly shined in these advertisements. And today, the brand continues with its A-list collaborations, recently enlisting supermodel Christy Turlington for its spring 2014 ads photographed by Viviane Sassen.

Missoni Pre-Fall 2014 – Inspired by the image of birds, Angela Missoni delivers an elegant, ladylike outing for Missoni’s pre-fall 2014 collection. A color palette of graphic black and white is highlighted in luxe knits, lace and chiffon. Prints of feathers and abstract fowls provide a whimsical touch to the forties influenced silhouettes. The Missoni woman also wears fur and leather embellishments on gloves, collars and stoles.
Missoni Travels for Spring – Missoni’s signature prints were out in full force for the label’s spring 2014 show presented during Milan Fashion Week. Creative director Angela Missoni drew inspiration from global travel with an opening section of birds and ocean waves which transformed into tribal stripes and Eastern color-blocking. Bold colors like orange, mauve, blue or coral are contrasted by black and white for a graphic effect. The Missoni woman wears sarongs, knit sweaters and off the shoulder dresses for the upcoming spring. Her accessories include chunky jewelry with the aforementioned prints, sandals and colorful bags that are ahead of the curb no matter the destination.
Future Past – While Missoni’s previous advertisements focused on nostalgia, the Italian label’s continuation of its sixtieth anniversary celebration looks towards the future with the fall 2013 campaign shot on the deserted coasts of Cornwall. British model Stella Tennant poses against a cubic structure that looks straight out of a science fiction movie. Alasdair McLellan captures Stella in the autumn collection’s graphic prints and subdued color palette.

Missoni’s Slinky Fall – After last season’s explosion of colors, the fall 2012 collection from Missoni muted the color palette and focused on form-fitting shapes for the new season. Designer Angela Missoni created cozy yet seductive knitwear in dreamy tones of sage green, camel, ash grey and burgundy. Accessories included thin belts above the waist, fur hats, latex gloves and boots with chunky heels. Of course, Missoni’s signature prints were also put on full display with a mix and match of luxe winter layers.
Missoni’s Vibrant Spring – Missoni embraced a vibrant color palette for the spring 2012 season with a mix of knits and fringe in delicious hues of cerulean, magenta and coffee. Designer Angela Missoni appeared to be inspired by flamenco dancers for the new season with big dramatic ruffles, traditional Missoni prints and light summer layers complete with hanging tassels.
With soft pastels and languid silhouettes, Missoni’s fall 2011 showing was an ethereal paradise featuring the label’s signature knits with floor-length skirts and dramatic coats. Accenting the dreamy garments, designer Angela Missoni also added touches of leather with sweeping dusters and python printed boots.
