Missoni Catwalk Fashion Show Milan SS2012
Sports are going to be big for 2012. At Missoni the Olympic games were the main inspiration for the new collection. The brand reinvented the Olympic tracksuit that Ottavio Missoni (founder of Missoni) designed for the 1948 London Olympic games.
This heritage translated to a beautiful color palette (the turquoise/sand combinations looked stunning) and the most elegant knitwear. Soft jackets and classic cut cardigans (with different patterns) were worn on top of each other, mixed with sporty shorts.
The mood of the show was relaxed, the clothes looked comfy. Though most of the designs are by no means suitable for wearing at the contemporary Olympics; they’re sure fun for a casual day at the office or a lunch in the park.
