Milan: It was an Indian summer at Missoni; “The collection goes from the North to the South”, explained the designer, referring to the colour progression of the outfits. One could almost smell the evocative scents of hot spices as a melange of hazy colour, from deep indigo through to hot paprika, played out on a runway scattered with sunset-hue rose petals. Relaxed, summery silhouettes came in soft knit weaves, supple suede’s, patchwork details and slubby linens, all inspired by the fabric traditions of the Indian textile masters. The vibrant and irregular check of Madras featured prominently throughout the collection; reinterpreted on two-piece suits, board shorts and pyjama pants. Elsewhere, the designer used warped and wefted indigo dyed yarns, producing Missoni’s spin on denim. An exotic blend of the utilitarian shapes of the West harmonised with the decorative ornamentation of the East.- Anna Ross
