In their words…
The little girl from the Missoni F/W 2012 collection looks like she just walked out of a fairy tale, an enchanted forest. Leggings and flowing hems emerge from soft, fluttering cloaks, reversible coats, capes, and short or knee-length cardigans, the key features of a sophisticated yet playful and nonchalant wardrobe. The collection is unmistakable, with an overlay of cuts, proportions and lengths, and a mix of stitches, patterns and colors.
Patchwork, stripes, space-dying, zigzags. And openwork raschel lace. These are the exclusive leitmotifs of Missoni knitwear, interpreted in shades of purple and grey, pink and beige, ochre and brown, embellished with fur, graphic inlays in black, and relief, openwork and three-dimensional patterns. Movement is imparted by rainbow reflections and the combination of Lurex, silk, rayon and warm, soft mohair, which define the success and longevity of a style that, in a unique way, weaves memory and imagination and invention, and the ethos of craftsmanship and high-tech ideas.
Devoted to girls aged 2 to 12 but taking up and interpreting the Missoni style for big sisters and mothers, the F/W 2012 collection includes – for the first time – styles for newborns, along with space-dyed pink or blue-and-ivory cashmere for baby girls or baby boys.
