The real news here was the unexpected use of a neutral color palette. Soft lilac and ivory hues highlighted the textures of croc-stamped jacquard pieces, as well as a cropped jacket and matching kicky skirt cut from a bonded, nubby wool that resembled shearling. Ladylike accessories including top-handle satchels and patent, over-the-knee boots polished off the look. A recently opened boutique in Macao (to be followed by two additional stores in Beijing and one in Hong Kong this spring) further proves that M Missoni is all grown up.
