Missoni did it yet again with their signature kaleidoscopic knitted effect! Each and every garment possessed a , look-at-me quality, in its gorgeous tapestry essence. No color went missing: fuchsia, royal blue, yellow, pumpkin, indigo, chocolate brown, and more easily surfaced. The shoulder baring tops and ruffle skirts felt very Chiquita Banana meets the Amalfi Coast, and leather added a contrasting texture to the film flounces. This collection got everyone’s minds off the Missoni for Target Collaboration for a moment, and back onto the signature runway collection.
Just when I thought I had seen it all…a basketball court-cum -runway presented itself for spring 2012. Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane, the masterminds behind Versus, gave us courtside seats to their SS12 collection filled with bold jersey dresses, eye-catching zig zag patterns, sleek cutouts and slits. The Easter egg color palette made sporty feel soft. Choose your style: cheerleader or jock? Either way, it’s three cheers (or three points) for this design team.
