Missoni, as every designer, has created certain pieces that have made me wrinkle my nose and wonder, "What were they thinking?" But, their Spring collection for shopbop is so fun and cohesive that I almost forget singlehandedly about those garments of which I was not the biggest fan.
Ruched Tunic, $295
Banded Tank Dress, $595
Metallic Leggings, $395
Short Sleeve Button Front Dress, $795
Safari Swirl Caftan, $595
With hints of metallic along the bright splashes of characteristic Missoni color, the patterns and prints just scream creativity and freshness. Some of these pieces work well with a pair of low-cut structured leather booties while others go efflortlessly with loose curls and bare feet at the beach. What I really love about the look for Spring 2010 is that the pieces aren't obnoxiously Missoni; each piece makes a statement in its own way without calling excessive attention to the label itself. Understated elegance and personality: two of my favorite concepts, and with this M Missoni line, it just works.
Here's to you, fashion. Cheers.
