“Missoni is a language that has been spoken for 70 years,” stated Filippo Grazioli at a pre-drop appointment. “My accountability is to introduce unique phrases, to widen its vocabulary.”
Simplify, edit, streamline—right here is Grazioli’s unique terminology, his thesaurus to update the designate’s lexicon. After drastically lowering the chromatic spectrum to staunch about a colours (white, murky, magenta, cyan and yellow), and narrowing silhouettes all the method in which down to lean, vertical lines, now he’s opening up the palette to more Missonian variations, whereas collectively with fluid alternate choices to shapes and proportions.
Some items he staunch introduced in the men’s drop sequence were furthermore proposed for pre-drop, just like the rainbow-colored mohair cardigans and the denim pieces made in an updated textured model of the fiammato sample. He loosened up the amount of knits a diminutive, as in rather roomier jumpers, jackets and coats extinct over his signature short, tight-fitting and slender minidresses. The play on contrasting patterns and textures was more accented: zig-zag, assessments and fiammato, progressively woven with lurex story to offer surfaces some shine, were blown up in micro/macro renditions. The raschel and caperdoni fabrics (that are made completely in-condo with special textile machines) were fashioned into masculine high-waisted pants, gentle-tailored overcoats extinct with matching miniskirts or bodycon minidresses.
Grazioli furthermore offered more chromatic diversity, collectively with tones of lilac, rust, pastels, and incandescent crimson to the basic palette of optic white and murky. Relaxing into his feature, he’s honing his technique to the designate: “I desire Missoni to be proper, timeless and ageless,” he stated. “I desire to survey folks in the aspect street carrying it—I desire it to be in fact wearable, now not staunch a method fantasy.”
