Missoni’s diffusion line comes back this season with a spunkier collection, with the introduction of new circus prints and the same high dose of acid colors.
Founders: Ottavio and Rosita Missoni
Owner: Valentino S.p.A
Year Established: 1998
Spring 2016 Inspiration: Vintage circus.
Star Pieces: A stylish knitted cady dress with green and white stripes and circus prints; a body flattering lurex jumpsuit with a deep V-cleavage; and a striped, cream, backless dress with lurex bands.
The Middle Eastern Sale: The joyous colors of the collection are always a plus in our sun-soaked countries.
Drawbacks: Some shapes are unflattering, such as the blue jumpsuit with an oversized bow that is too short and boxy.
