Missoni, N.Y. Artist Eric N. Mack Prep for This Year’s Desert X

Missoni and artist Eric N. Mack are gearing up for Saturday’s opening of the second installment of Desert X.
All are welcome at the complimentary contemporary art exhibition in Palm Springs, which is being curated by artistic director Neville Wakefield and this year’s co-curators Amanda Hunt and Matthew Schum. The desert landscape will provide the backdrop for 19 site-specific installations and performances by Mack and other artists like Sterling Ruby, Superflex, Iván Argote, Mary Kelly, Steve Badgett and Chris Taylor, Nancy Baker Cahill, Cecilia Bengolea, Pia Camil, John Gerrard, Julian Hoeber and Jenny Holzer, Iman Issa, Mary Kelly and Postcommodity, among others. Ruby is widely known as a favorite of Raf Simons, who tapped him to design an installation for the Calvin Klein Madison Avenue store. This year’s edition of Desert X will run through April 21.
By joining forces with the New York-based Mack, Missoni is providing the artist with colorful and patterned fabrics that have been selected by creative director for his artistic contribution. Mack will stage his site-specific sculpture in a car garage housed in an old gas station overlooking the Salton Sea. Missoni had to be extra generous with the yards of silks, knits and tulles need to

Margherita Missoni Amos Collaborates With Mott50 for Sun-Protective Swimwear

IN THE SWIM: Margherita Missoni Amos has teamed with the sun protective apparel brand Mott50 for women’s and children’s swimwear.
The resort capsule collection will launch in October with an assortment of bold-colored options. In tandem with Mott50’s chief executive officer and founder Anne Reilly, Missoni has dreamed up performance swimwear with retro elements such as zippered necklines, flounced skirts, polo collars and color-blocking.
Reached in Europe on a family vacation, Missoni said one challenge of designing this sun-shielding collection was the need for ample coverage on the arms and neckline. “Performance-oriented sun-protected swimwear is normally very sports-driven from a style perspective. It’s very sporty and contemporary. What I tried to do was to make it more retro,” she said. “Back in the day they used to cover themselves up more so I picked up some of the aspects of that and mixed them with contemporary fabrics and techniques,” adding that the references span from the Forties through the Seventies.
While the average T-shirt provides 5 UPF, Mott50 apparel claims to have 50+ UPF to fend off UVA and UVB without harmful toxins that are used in certain sun lotions. The company aims to curtail the estimated 50 million people who are treated

Missoni Pre-Fall 2018

The effortless attitude of New York’s women and their eclectic look served as inspiration for the Missoni pre-fall collection.
Marking a move from its signature patterns, including the zig-zag, the brand embraced a new attitude and explored different solutions to refresh its image.
The result was definitely appealing. The Missoni graphic logo pop up on several pieces, infused with a cool street mood. For example, it appeared as a contrasting intarsia on the back of a covetable shearling bomber, while it served as starting point to create a geometric pattern embossed on tight leather pants. The logo also gave a playful twist to knitwear, including comfortable joggers matched with a luxurious shearling and mink fur striped jacket.
Mannish influences, especially evident in the range of oversized coats and impeccable suits, were juxtaposed to a free-spirited folk feel. This resonated in the range of patchwork silk dresses showing a combination of different floral patterns and enriched by a cascade of printed fringes, as well as in the crochet maxi cardigans and outerwear styles exuding artisanal craftsmanship.
Despite the array of vibes and references, the lineup seemed coherent and marked an interesting step for the evolution of the fashion house, which is gearing up to celebrate

Missoni Resort 2018

Missoni is trying to find a new balance. While the brand is working to lighten up its daywear, new more sculpted constructions, including bustier dresses, were introduced in the pretty evening offering for resort.
While the word “rigor” might sound inappropriate when associated to the label, Angela Missoni this season explored sharper silhouettes, both worked in the brand’s signature knits and in a range of different materials. These included the textured silk of a chic jumpsuit, as well as soft suede crafted for a belted romper infused with a safari-inspired mood.
That said, the brand did not dismiss its signature upscale knit skills. There were beautiful sweaters, tops and dresses rendered in bright tones, as well as a covetable long T-shirt frock crafted by stitching together different fabric samples.
Fringes, plissé details and soft colors were also combined in a range of very feminine options, including a pleated dress with a shawl-like detail that introduced a more delicate vibe into the brand’s offering.

Pigalle Reveals Collaboration With Missoni

Pigalle and Missoni have revealed their men’s wear collaboration.
As expected, the collection merges the Parisian streetwear brand’s signature sporty silhouettes with Missoni’s colorful knits.
Although Pigalle’s basketball influences aren’t intrinsic to Missoni, the brand’s designer and founder Stéphane Ashpool found commonalities between himself and Ottavio Missoni, who started the Italian line.
“Ottavio Missoni is one person that I’ve always admired a lot in this industry. I see many similarities between us,” said Ashpool. “He came from a sport world; he has a strong attitude; he loves color, and has an elegant taste for eccentricity and a big value for the family. It’s the same [as Pigalle]. So in a way I feel like a baby of the Missoni values.”
The men’s wear capsule collection will be available this month exclusively at Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in Tokyo’s Ginza district and Pigalle stores in Paris and Tokyo.

M Missoni RTW Fall 2017

Eccentric prints, shimmer and texture, oh my! Missoni’s universe isn’t one to dabble in prints sparingly, often leaning on house codes like Lurex and multicolor combinations with maximal effect to draw customers with eclectic sensibilities. The diffusion label possesses the same spirit as the main line but at a more accessible price point and with a younger vibe. This season, Angela Missoni and company looked to Croatian and Slovak naïf paintings, bringing to life some whimsical iterations in a jubilant array of textures and younger-leaning silhouettes.
The season’s big push came in the form of signature jacquard intarsia on dresses and purposefully mismatched coordinating sets in a warm palette of plum, pine, orange and auburn. These seamlessly mixed color, graphic elements and texture in a nod to period dressing for modern day. The brand’s take on a poppy Fair Isle sweater, for instance, was paired with floral-print knit pants in a display of relaxed quirk. Knit dresses in form-fitting and A-line cuts had Victorian leanings and shimmery appeal. Cozy knit ponchos and a dramatic floor-length cape further underscored the eclectic mix.
Also notable were a series of tailored trenchcoats and army capes with utility pockets that had broad appeal.
On the accessories front, the brand is introducing

M Missoni Pre-Fall 2017

Missoni’s signature zigzag and Lurex knits were worked into what could be described as contemporary bourgeois sport for pre-fall. Elements of the classic — plaid blazers, modestly cut feminine dresses — were styled with sporty hoodies and stirrup pants. Geode motifs gave an earthy, psychedelic spirit, while patent pants and feminist photo prints offered a rebellious rock attitude. There was a little something for everyone, all of it rendered in understandable silhouettes.
