Missoni, Spring 13
Famed for its knitwear, Missoni’s spring collection was no less a hit, with perfect lightweight summer options – embroidered yoked jumpers, ombré coloured pullovers, blurry striped knits and gauzy, airy cardigans. Fast becoming one of the season’s key items, the bomber jacket was reworked as a knit too, a blue intarsia version standing out. Beyond the signature knits, suiting and outerwear also came to the fore, with light 2sb suiting and patch-pocket safari jackets catching the eye, alongside casual polo shirts and printed short-shorts.
In short Desert travellers ventured out in a collection that celebrated the brand’s talent for knitwear. Expect the reinterpretation of the season’s key bomber jacket as a knit option to translate across the high street.
