Menswear Fashion Week 2012: Missoni

In Men, Milan on June 19, 2011 at 9:08 pm


Based on the tweets on the Missoni presentation, one has to wonder what was more interesting: the cheese being served as Hors d’œuvres, or the fact that Angela Missoni reinvented the Olympic tracksuit designed by Ottavio Misson, the brand’s founder, for the 1948 games. Both, as it turns out, were amusing, though the latter was far more significant.

London is hosting the 2012 Olympics . It’s a befitting muse for the 2012 collections. The presentation was emblematic for all things sportswear: shorts, cable-knit sweaters and classic cut cardigans that are sure to be picked up by those buff-up athletes hitting the tracks. And of course, what would Missoni be without colour however, the staples were blacks and greys. Practicality at its best.
