Milan: The latest from knitwear legend Missoni centered on a new production technique expanding the range into woven outerwear, including Mackintosh coats and casual parkas which provided a nice foil to gauzy cardigans, linen shirting and henleys done in African-inspired patterns. Layered textures were key throughout the presentation, but this season the label’s unraveled craftiness was reigned in by a more contained sense of urban wearability via youthful tailored shorts and crisply pleated trousers.— Nina Stotler
