Missoni SS’18 – Anniversary Celebration and All the Menswear Looks

I made my way to the Missoni Spring 2018 show location with a great sense of expectation. The show marked Angela Missoni’s 20th anniversary as creative director of the fashion house her parents founded in 1953 and upon entrance, the setting did not disappoint. Guests were welcomed by the visual intensity of a kaleidoscopic canopy (crafted by American artist Rachel Hayes) and a verdant encasement of lush greenery. Vivid hues, fabrication, and nature played on one’s senses and hinted fully at the elements that have defined Missoni’s fashion offering over the years.

Post gazing at the 21 men’s looks seen on the catwalk, it was clear that the intention was to give a taste of Missoni over the years. Shown for the first time in combination with women’s, the menswear was very 70’s, modernized and “Missoni-fied” with colour and groovy textured fabrics. Shirts were light and loose, trousers relaxed with light flaring and side cuff slits, and varied hues on mass display  – overall, garments with an easy vibe and true-to-form Missoni mood. Notable pieces were the sleeveless sunrise graphic knitwear and jackets and on the accessories end, slim scarves and slip-on (with multi-colored graphics details) finished many of the looks. It would not be Missoni though if knitted shirts, shorts and cardigans in the brand’s signature bold patterns weren’t sent down the runway.  FYI, the jackets and the slip-on should certainly be on your SS’18 wardrobe wishlist.

Next year marks the the brand’s 65th anniversary and Angela Missoni’s 50th birthday. If this collection and show was a taste of what is to come, much is anticipated for what will be a milestone moment for one of Italy’s most loved family-run houses. On that note, Happy Anniversary Angela!
