MILAN, Jun 29, 2012/ — The idea of a traveler collecting precious souvenirs and talismans throughout his journey is evident in this collection. A traditional cardigan transforms into a Missoni inspired wrap tunic.
Traditional safari trousers or shorts are recreated in exclusive Missoni loom knits and rich jacquards. Or a classic desert boot or acquasock is further embellished with embroidery.
The use of nobel fibers feature heavily in this new collection ranging from iridescent linens to cashmere silks, that are further amplified by cotton crepes, light summer wools and elasticated cottons.
The distinctive use of colour resonates across the collection where classic men’s colours such as sand, dark olive and ink are used to create different gradient techniques that are then further enhanced with vivid accents such as bright coral, poppy red, saffron and bright emerald green.
The use of unique Missoni knits is utilized once again to create special additions of the Converse Auckland Racer to compliment this classic and contemporary Missoni men’s wardrobe.
