M Missoni marches to its own beat (literally—Missoni’s fun younger label has been hosting music events and curating cool soundtracks for several seasons), and Spring ’14′s rhythm might be described as tribal meets psych-pop. The Italian house’s signature space dye knits vibrated in neon hues, and subtle African influences were seen throughout the collection on drop-crotch paper-bag trousers, wrap skirts worn over matching leggings, and sheath dresses featuring artisanal raffia details. Meanwhile, a wavy gorilla print appeared on a cutout-shoulder top. As usual, there was a sporty undercurrent, and standouts here included a one-shoulder minidress cut from an electric-lime-colored mesh, as well as bracelets and slide sandals with bungee-rope details. All in all, the lineup made you want to put on an M.I.A. song and dance.
Between Chloé’s surfboard-ankle-strap sandals, M Missoni‘s ode to Venice Beach, and the aquatic-inspired athletic wear at Hervé Léger, surfing was certainly the sport of choice at the recent Resort ’14 presentations. If you’re planning on catching some waves this summer, why not do so in style? Shop our chic yet practical surfing picks from Lisa Marie Fernandez, Chanel, Missoni, and more, below.

The new M Missoni Resort collection captured the free spirit of Venice Beach and its surf and skate subcultures. Pieces like a parka and board shorts featuring a cartoonish, street-art-inspired print (with little Ms tucked in throughout) were youthful and sporty, and an easy knit dress with cutout shoulders resembled ripped and frayed indigo. “We played with the California girl’s vibrant and unconventional attitude to fashion,” Angela Missoni told Style.com. Other memorable moments here included a graffitied architectural shift with convertible side pleats as well as signature space-dyed knitwear, which had a scuba-like stretch. With five boutiques in the U.S., and a sixth slated to open in Las Vegas this year, it’s apparent that M Missoni is finally shifting into cruise control.
The Olympics might be over but not to worry, there’s something else to catch on television right now—it’s Discovery Channel’s 25th annual Shark Week. Since fashion’s fascination with creatures of the sea seems to have heightened in the past few seasons, sharks included (all fingers here point to Givenchy), we found plenty of options to show your fin pride these days. Go ahead—take a bite.
