The anxious await of the Missoni fall 2013 collection seems to have been well justified considering the fact that it brought several covetable alternatives into the spotlight. With all the drama that the Milan Fashion Week 2013 edition has brought, it seemed like like there’s little room for laid back looks with a sporty allure yet designer Angela Missoni proved that such options can be a legitimate choice in the upcoming season as well. With a mix of dark accents and colorful touches the new looks carried an exciting modern allure that still showed off the label’s well known patterns shine.
Comfort was a key factor for the Missoni fall 2013 collection and the combos which impressed though strong proportional contrast also proved the most intriguing as it carried plenty of elements which reminded of lounge-wear. The brand didn’t shy away from injecting a bit sexiness into the new looks with plenty of sheer touches placed strategically and with geometric precision. The fashion house’s iconic zig zag patterns were reinvented highlighted through degrade touches which put a fun twist on the new season looks.
Femininity was reflected through sporty lenses with plenty of minimalistic vibes to match the mood of the collection. Still, despite the multitude of dark elements presented, the Missoni fall 2013 collection featured plenty of vibrant tones which put an optimistic spin on the new looks, creating a fab set of alternatives worth drawing inspiration from. Fans of the label who are looking to make a strong statement this season can do so by playing with proportions for a complex yet relaxed allure that will never fail to intrigue.
An aspect that differentiated the Missoni fall 2013 collection from many others of the sort was that the fashion house didn’t rely the fabrics that have become ubiquitous in most collections for fall 2013 collections from the industry’s movers and shakers bringing a refreshing style perspective instead which made comfort an important part of the looks and at the same time brought plenty of practical approaches into the mix.
