Missoni Launches First Pre-Fall Collection

21st November 2016

Knitwear giant, Missoni has been pushing the boundaries of yarn since the 1950’s. Headquartered in Varese, Italy – a little nearer to alpine Switzerland than to the Italian fashion capital of Milan – the family-run affair has been clothing the world in its woven wears, most notably in their colour-infused zigzag pattern, for decades. Season after season, the house has been redefining knits and 2017 sees the release of its first ever pre-fall collection. A bright, muted colour palette confidently plants the collection in the ‘70s movement and it is built around the journey of light through the Japanese landscape – both wilderness and urban.

For the pre-fall collection, as expected, luxury knits are in abundance with lightweight cashmere and silk-blended cashmere playing backdrop to those specialty, jagged-line, intarsia patterns. Loosely tailored wool blazers, zip-up cardigans and a checked, ‘90s-inspired over-shirt will all be available to create your new, favourite wintertime ensembles.

Built for layering, the three-button, shades of grey wool overcoat in an elongated herringbone is the picture of modernism and can be paired with the wool trousers in a more contracted weave; and dipping back into the house’s trademark use of graphics and colours, the geometric, monochrome cardigan or camel-coloured jumper with flashes of liquid petrol blue and cobalt will suit us fine. For cooler days, block-colour, chunky cable-knits are easy, especially when paired with Missoni’s own five-pocket jeans (in dark hues), crafted using their space-dye yarns on shuttle looms.

Reversible jackets, bombers and a nylon cape round out the relaxed range that will be available in January from MATCHESFAHION.COM.
