Missoni Summer 2014, in the mood for Africa, all illustrations Ivo Bisignano text Stefania Seoni

Dear Diane, dear shaded viewers,

The colors and the landascapes of West Africa inspired the collection.   Africa like a trace for the colour palette  in  indigo tie dye of Benin,  or in  the sand , dark terracotta and clay of Mali cloths. The textures, rich jacquards and the plaited stiches give energy to the male wardrobe.

Especially interesting was the research on textiles and the special loom knit fabric made with a rubber coated
yarn, a fabric created in special patnership with Hancock of Scotland . The character of the artisanal knitwear continues to be the focus for  Missoni, always
inseparable from innovation and
