Missoni debuted their Fall/Winter 2015 collection at Milan Fashion Week, featuring marble patterns with a Trompe l’œil effect, a space-age interpretation of the classic knits. The graphics of the materials were taken from postmodern interior design, such as the works by Richard Artschwager. These are the markings of the neo-body-conscious new Missoni woman.
Models wore tight, legging-like trousers combined with one-shoulder knits and deep zippered V-necks. Looks fashioned in sheer marbled jersey are worn under metallic mash tank dresses. The styles were soft and enveloping, elastic and versatile, satiny and transparent as a second skin. Outerwear featured long masculine jackets and capes with narrow tuxedo lapels, in which jacquard patterns expand like construction games on horizontal, perpendicular and diagonal levels. Iconic zigzags were presented through an abstract lens.
Bands of colors spanned from white and black to bright red and even included pastels. The dying used in the playful collection allows for ample pairing of pieces, creating a youthful mix-matched look.
Accessories included ultralight metal fringe earrings, which were paired with calfskin boots, Make-up featured “crescent moon eyebrows,” pushing the trend of the full brow to the max. Overall the looks were a silkily sexy new viewpoint on signature Missoni.
