Collection autumn/winter 2017
Amid the many political statements that were made during the autumn/winter 2017 presentations was Angela Missoni's, who invited her fashion audience to stand together in unity for all human rights. In particular women’s rights, as became clear thanks to the pink 'pussyhats’ worn at the finale, made in the brand’s signature zigzag knit, symbolizing support and solidarity for women’s political resistance. The collection itself started off with fitted, knitted suits in a multicoloured plaid pattern, which evolved into a silhouettes that married a myriad of prints in a myriad of layers. Chunky, colourful furs and knits contrasted with fine, skintight lurex dresses that turned proper ladylike through the addition of gloves, necklaces and skinny scarves.Coming back from a summer vacation filled with lots of experiences, Angela Missoni was inspired to tone it down a bit for this spring/summer 2017 collection. Atypical for Missoni indeed, where usually there is no room for anything minimal. What she shows us are simplistic silhouettes with the Missoni excitement exposed in its details, colour palette and patterns. With a focus on layering, the designer managed to create knitted and crochet colour-blocking dresses and jumpsuits, or sometimes even shows us the illusion of what looks like a one-piece outfit. The different necklines; scooped, oval, a deep v-neckline, and dress cuts; midi, mini, pencil dresses, a high slit, together with the oversized hoop earrings show the brand’s playful identity.
