MISSONI SPRING 2021 RTW COLLECTION
Missoni defines silhouettes through the lens of comfort with the characteristic knitwear and tactile fabrics.
November 10, 2020
The Missoni Spring 2021 RTW collection pivoted around an elongated and slightly ’90s silhouette tube tops, midriff-baring mini cardigans, slender body-hugging midi-skirts,, and straight-cut thin-strapped slip dresses.
Discussing her new spring collection, she elaborated, “Since my parents established our house in the ’50s, our collections have never been elaborate or over-designed. Nevertheless, this season I went for even more simplicity and clarity. It came as a spontaneous feel. We are designers and not sociologists; our creativity is what drives us. Although these times call for a heightened sense of responsibility and more engagement on social issues, women—myself included—still desire to be feminine and to express a certain sensuality, even when confined at home.”
Missoni’s typical 3D textures were smoothed and simplified, with plays of horizontal intarsias contrasting the verticality of the lines, a touch of Lurex and fishnet-knitted sequins adding luminosity and sparkle. Missoni paired every outfit with T-strap stilettos, casually wrapped around the ankle with printed foulards. “I’ve found myself looking at high heels in my wardrobe with a feel of longing,” she said. “I can’t wait to wear them again when all this will hopefully be over.”
