Milan: Layering is a perfect outlet for Missoni as their iconic dimensional knitwear makes an even greater impact when piled on with abandon. Pre-Fall served as a platform for cozy combinations of slim intarsia knit turtlenecks, long patterned vests, draped coats and clingy pencil skirts. Without the tonal color combinations, such as plum and lavender or saffron and pumpkin, the traditional Missoni pattern mashup could have been hallucinatory, but a smart palette and sharp silhouettes avoided sensory overload. Fur trim and a sprinkling of sequins upped the luxury quotient, also stopping short of overbearing embellishment. —Nina Stotler
