The family still waits for news of Vittorio Missoni, whose plane has been missing off the coast of Venezuela for about 2 weeks now, but the Missoni show went ahead last Sunday and I was there… . After being warned by several bodyguards I couln’t walk on the runway made of sand, I really enjoyed a typical Missoni collection, which is not a bad thing. Why changing a winning team?

In recognition of Missoni’s 60th anniversary, the Fall Winter 2013-14 menswear collection looks back to the family’s artisanal knitwear heritage while continuing its constant focus on innovating exclusive knit techniques. The color palette is quite warm and took inspiration from the great North American landscapes. Anthracite, aquamarine, dark burgundy, burnt amber and terracotta are the most important colors of this very wearable collection. Although the family is going through a huge crisis, this is yet another Missoni collection to remember!

My favourite show I saw in Milan? No doubt, definitely Missoni! Given the soundtrack, the desert boots and a catwalk laid out with chevrons of sand, North Africa might have seemed the obvious destination, but Angela Missoni said it was Southeast Asia that inspired the Spring Summer 2013 collection. Safari jackets, field jackets, bombers and two-button blazers are combined with characteristic polo shirts, henleys, sweaters, cardigans and traditional safari trousers or shorts, all enhanced by the Missoni heritage knits (which I like!). Angela was not in a colorful mood. The collection was full of classic men’s colors, such as sand, dark olive and ink. My favourite piece? I don’t know… I want everything! Auguri, Angela, by far one of the best Missoni collections ever!
