Missoni: texture and layers

My anticipation with Missoni is always in seeing how the traditional Missoni patterns and knits translate to new ideas, new seasons. For fall 2011 menswear that meant texture; and lots of it.

Worldly and with a sense of nature, Missoni’s showing at Milan fashion week spanned a colour palette from earthy browns and clays, to slate greys and cool blues. As well as the strong emphasis on texture, there’s a particular fascination with layering. And, as Missoni shows, layering for men doesn’t have to lean to the untidy, grungy side – gents wanting to create a cosy, textured look of layers that’s still cooly sophisticated, look no further than Missoni for inspiration.
