Missoni Spring 2015

by Dena Silver

The messy, undone, carefree type of chic ruled Missoni’s Spring show, where floral motifs attributed to the bohemian freedom of a relaxing summer vacation. Perhaps a weekend at the Amalfi Coast? Or a lazy week spent at Cap d’Antibes? Wherever the location, Missoni’s trademark chevron served as backdrop to many floral dustings and a variety of knits that provided room to experiment. Many pieces featured watercolor stripes and chevron on bright belted trenches, abundant knits, wide-leg pants, and billowing button downs. Also on offer: abstract sheer knits, underlying body suits, off the shoulder tops, and turbans in bold colors. As for another unexpected detail? Sweaters haphazardly tied across one shoulder. On the runway, this translated as pretty and unpredictably cool as the rest of the collection.
