Freedom, energy, vitality, transgression. A wonderfully novel take on the Jamaican way of life marks the M Missoni Resort 2015 collection.

The Jamaican flag supplies the collection’s vibrant color compositions. Easy silhouettes, like apron-style frocks and tops, are cut in madras plaids traditional to the Caribbean. Those loose-fitting checked pieces have a very relaxed fit, but there are some body-con touches elsewhere. Paired with raffia-soled Vans, it plays to the brand’s knitwear strengths.

Missoni and her team continued to push innovative fabrications with a series of indigo looks including a cute shorts suit, which is cut from a woven denim that was washed, fringed, and then patchworked together. Finished off with novelty accessories such as artisanal drum bags and basketweave wedges, the new collection has a playful energy.
