7/15/17 O&A NYC ITS SATURDAY- ANYTHING GOES: Missoni 2017 Spring Summer Menswear (Full Fashion Show)

Missoni’s uniquely dense kaleidoscope of color do seem to have an affinity with South American artisan weaves. The Missoni family traveled to that continent when Angela was 15, and a jacket she bought in Guatemala provided the touchstone for this collection.

The opening half of the show was a loose, easy assembly of knit, shorts, suiting, zip-up tracksuit tops and shirts—some rendered in Tikal triangles of Missoni knit—interspersed with breton striped undershirts and cotton field jackets printed with bird of paradise camouflage. As wide-weave leather sandals were replaced with Cuban heeled, sling-strapped shoes paneled in brown suede and calf we entered a second phase of fantasy South American cowboy.

The straw hats were as wide-brimmed as the pants were high-hemmed: These came with a little flare, in white and indigo denim and, later, more rich weave. This was a sweet non-literal return to a geographically distant realm with particular resonance to clan Missoni.
