Coveting the Classic Prints of M Missoni AW11

Whether they’re hot or not… Missoni prints are some of my favorite prints and knits of all time… ever… They are classics, and every time, I always drool over the way the rich texture and color pallets. Since launching their contemporary brand, M Missoni in 1998, the Missoni family kept an integral part in developing the knits and prints for the less expensive line. It was so exciting when, last week I was able to go and visit the show room to get an up close and personal view of the Fall Collection.

The second I walked into the room, I knew I was in heaven. Racks and racks of gorgeous M Missoni, knits, silks and their new accessories collections with bags and shoes. I adored the homage to the 70′s with tie neck blouses and high waisted short shorts, and knit jumpsuits (wish they photographed well, but damn, they are HOT). My favorite was a pair of silk shorts with a geometric print. I die. And will have to do some serious leg work to wear them next fall. The bags were also delightful, again with contemporary designer bags, they run less than $1k, which is pretty great, and they have sturdy leather, detailed hardware and the classic Missoni space dyed cotton lining. Such a nice touch.  Anyway… I spent a good hour photographing all the minute details, so here we go!

I have been waiting a nice and affordable vintage Missoni piece crossing my path for ages - but it has not happened yet! I totally join to this choir… …although these particular colors are too warm to be really mine.

Ahhhh! Missoni! I have tried unsuccessfully several times to bag a vintage piece on ebay, but others had the same idea and they go through the roof!! I’ll keep trying, though! The patterns are so energizing, the color combinations are so perfect!! Thanks for sharing!!
