Grunge glamour was on the menu for Fall at M Missoni
. While that theme has already been well-addressed by fashion in recent years, it was executed persuasively here with the characteristic boldness that sets this diffusion line apart. The new collection mashed up rich textures and energetic prints to eclectic effect. Marbleized jacquard pullovers were paired with mismatched sweatpants, for example, and the house's signature space-dye knits were intarsia-ed with a playful rock star pattern. Now that's
psychedelic. Elsewhere, Angela Missoni and co. experimented with new silhouettes, including "inverted tulip" skirts. Their asymmetric drape was created by inserting extra pieces of triangle and square-shaped material at the sides—thankfully, that sounds more complicated than it looked. Outerwear was another highlight. A handful of terrific cocoon coats came in tactile fabrications such as a dense, matted wool that had a shearling effect. On the other hand, a group of tartan plaid toppers and kilts did feel like a rehash of 2013's short-lived punk trend, but they still successfully drove home the lineup's grungy, youthful spirit, as did the slouchy beanies and fingerless gloves shown with many of the looks.
