Missoni Pre Fall 2015

Looks like they are implementing the old with the new again!

Missoni Pre Fall 2015
Angela Missoni took on a retro vintage look for a return into the 60's and 70's style. 
Missoni's lavish patterned knits always exude a bit of that rich hippie vibe, and this collection went at the look full force. It had the courage of its convictions: There were bell-bottoms, minis, knit blouses with glam ruffled collars. This collection of trends proved to be an excellent fit for her label. 

One of the interesting things about this lineup was its emphasis on knit pattern outside the usual Missoni ken—there was a token amount of the signature wave and zigzag, but most of the real estate in this collection was occupied by a vaguely animal-esque spot motif and a painterly abstract floral. Both prints came off very organically Missoni, but they also shifted the graphic sensibility a touch.

 Texture was another evolution this season: There were a number of appealing three-dimensional knits, ranging from a dense, curly mohair to a delicate lacelike crochet. The combination of print, pattern, and texture was maximal, to say the least.

That 70's bell-bottom look used with a soft lacelike crochet knit.
