The M Missoni collection that showed in New York the Fall Winter 2019/20 is inspired by the American mood set in the forests of North America with a style that enhances the simplicity of a woman, with iconic colourful prints and classic M Missoni zig zag pattern.
The Fall Winter collection is always characterized by the knitwear texture that is the main theme in all its versions. The colours are strong, mixed with geometric prints or classic pattern, creating a nuance of all-over colours with precious pattern and textures.
The common denominator is the eclectic combination of different fabrics: tweed for jackets, velvets, knitwear inserts and ecological sheepskin.The outerwear is the key item for this Fall Winter season’s collection that has jump-suits and maxi cardigans, with narrow stripes at the waist and crew-neck sweaters combined with ribbed leggings, over-the-knee skirts draped with a classic cut or long, with straight or very wide pants. The combination of natural colours is strong, green shades, mustard, light blue and black-grey.
Knitted bags, gloves and scarves with geometric patterns and country patchworks complete the look.
The woman who wears M Missoni looks like the protagonist in a painting of the early twentieth century or in a Byzantine mosaic, the texture and tartan prints, mini-check, stripes and zigzags enhance the feminine shapes of her silhouette.
The image is that of a sporty woman with a relaxed fun and elegant look that likes to combine different looks all in one.
