Milan: Fluid movement was the takeaway from the S/S 12 Missoni collection, a swaying exploration of fringe, layers and ruffles bringing the season beyond the house’s expected zigzag knits. Instead, Angela Missoni incorporated strips of zebra print, ethnic embroidery and oversize florals into off-kilter, asymmetrical constructions that hung almost carelessly across the body. Loosely figure-skimming dresses, slim but slouchy trousers and ruffled crop tops were pieced together in an ad-hoc frenzy that added up to a textured message of youthful abandon. —Nina Stotler
