MILAN…Established fashion house Missoni took a more youthful turn this season, perhaps in a nod to brand heir and girl-about-town Margarita. Sophisticated yet girly florals enliven loose v-neck dresses, and the addition of a ruffled bust gives a strapless look more kick. However, the standout item in the collection has to be the gray jumpsuit, a style presented by other designers, with varying degrees of wearability. Missoni’s crisp version is the hit of the bunch with smart construction and no unnecessary embellishment. An easy, transitional collection for F/W 08.
