“Urban gardener” was the theme of the Missoni collection, according to creative director Angela Missoni. The inspiration resulted in a rich color palette of blues, purples, reds, yellows and greens, all interwoven into the company’s signature knit-centered lineup.
Drawing a palette of colors from travel photographer Erwin Fieger’s Japan: Sunrise-Island, tones seep one into the other as granular particles forming an intelligible whole; weaving together blurred isolations of moods and recollections of past and present. Lavender glimmers against indigo, shadow blue, periwinkle and cherry blossom; apricot radiates against red birch, military green and turmeric; mint springs against black plum, bamboo, sawa green and limestone. Additional dye-and-wash treatments create faded, sun-drenched effects, conferring the fabrics with a patina of experience.
