The Missoni Pre-Fall 2018 collection features the characteristic bold pattern and use of color for a palpable sense of ease and creative fun.

“I have very clear memories from when I was 5 years old of, say, buttons of a specific shape, or trimmings made just so, or of shoes of a certain leather, of makeup and wigs from a precise collection. Our archive is just my life!” Agela Missoni said about the inspiration behind her new Pre-Fall collection. “It’s just instinctive,” she continued. “I don’t need to look at too many references; my filters are just my sensibility and my passions.”

Featuring colorful knits, woven trousers and unique fur jackets, the collection plays with everything from texture to mixing and matching. Stand-out pieces include the bright rainbow fur coat and the equally colorful fringe dress, which are both eye-catching and cozy beyond compare.

Classic Missoni staples were given an urban folk vibe, as in long knitted wool dresses with a ’70s edge or a gorgeous cape hand-crocheted granny-style in little multicolored square patterns. The energy of color is a Missoni trademark, and it was celebrated with brio here. A voluminous kidassia jacket was dyed in vibrant Technicolor shades and worn with logo jogging pants for a relaxed, sporty effect. An elongated bomber jacket was covered in multicolored curly paillettes; paired with a long plissé skirt in silk chiffon printed with micro-florals, it had a romantic, feminine look.

“I wanted to highlight the sensuality of textures and silhouettes, a touch of poetry,” said Missoni. Yet she introduced some masculine and sportswear-inspired elements to keep the mix balanced and current.
