Missoni Gets Minxed


We told you they were coming, and here—fresh off the catwalk in Milan—are a few of the custom nail overlays Minx designed for Missoni yesterday. “The base of all nails was Minxlusion and many of the Missoni patterns have a Minxlusion-esque thread running through them, so it matched the theme perfectly,” Minx co-creator Dawn Lynch-Goodwin explained of the 20 different patterns she dreamt up in a blue, yellow, and red palette. Nail guru Marian Newman presented the designs to Angela Missoni and Margherita Missoni the day before the show and after a reported love fest, the women made their selections so that the nails “interpreted” the fabrics used in the show, rather than replicated them. To help save time backstage as 18 of the 37 models were running late from a previous show, Newman and her team actually applied some of the appliqués onto nails as the girls stood in line to hit the runway! Anything in the name of perfectly pro tips. Which is your favorite?
