MISSONI – MILAN F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Angela Missoni’s collection for the house of Missoni‘s Fall 2012 collection took cues from Mother Nature, informed by the story of a girl who wants to lose herself in the wild, but is trapped in the big city. Angela applied traditional Missoni weaves and patterns to an contemporary, urban wardrobe of pieces inspired by wood, stone, fur, tree bark, and mica-speckled minerals. Copper-colored designs cut through ensembles like mineral seams through soil, dresses were heavily embroidered to mimic wood grain, and degraded stripes suggested sediment layers. The earth-tone looks were complemented by tightly wrapped stoles and big fur collars that mimicked the knit and lace pieces that were crafted to look like animal pelts.
