The Best Looks Of The Week, As Chosen By Readers


062214_Look_Of_The_Day_Roundup-blog[5][1] editors were dreaming of color this week, and it showed in our Look of the Day polls. Blame it on Marina Larroudé’s recent rainbow-themed shopping story or even the World Cup, with all the face-painted fans, neon soccer (I mean, football) jerseys, and waving flags from every corner of the globe. In fact, that bold, international spirit inspired Tuesday’s Look of the Day: M Missoni’s crocheted dress featuring Jamaica’s national colors took home the most votes. A close second was Zero + Maria Cornejo’s cobalt, citron, and green color-blocked ensemble, which was inspired by the Brazilian flag. On Thursday, we explored graphic Resort stripes. In Technicolor hues and eye-catching patterns—like Valentino’s winning zigzag dress, pictured above—they’re a fresh alternative to your basic nautical motif. Other trends on our mind this week? Daisy prints, bucket hats, and so much more. Click here for all the winning looks, and check back next week for our latest obsessions.

M Missoni Boogies On Down


M Missoni Spring '14

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.

Zigzag to the Beat


Smokey JonesLast night, M Missoni—Missoni’s younger, sportier sister—threw a summertime soiree at New York’s Le Bain, celebrating not only the season but also its collaborative soundtrack, dubbed “M Missoni Is for Music,” produced in tandem with Epic Records’ L.A. Reid. The only snafu? It felt more like early fall, with temperatures dipping into the low sixties—ostensibly chilly compared to Manhattan’s extreme heat of late.

“I’m just glad it’s not boiling,” said Harley Viera-Newton, first up on the deejay roster. Jumpers and jackets were soon shed, however, as Le Bain’s terrace filled up and thawed. Guests, including Nicky Hilton, Erin Heatherton, and Jessica Hart, could be seen mingling at the bar or snow-cone machine in flirty M Missoni minis.

Naturally, it wouldn’t be a Missoni party without some zigzag action, so M Missoni placed chevron-ed dry-erase place mats and markers along tabletops, inviting partygoers to graffiti at will. “My first Missoni memory has to be my mother’s matching hat and coat,” offered Hannah Bronfman. “The hat had a fitted, bonnet-like top but a large, flat brim that fanned out like a pizza pie.”

Stepping in for Ginny Blackmore, who was slated to perform last night but wasn’t feeling well, crooner Smokey Jones (above) previewed a handful of songs from her forthcoming album. Afterward, Chelsea Leyland took the reins from Viera-Newton, spinning until security shooed everyone out. At night’s end, Dannijo’s Danielle Snyder summed it up best: “It’s funny. We were just in Saint-Tropez. Everyone wears Missoni there. It’s like a uniform—iconic summer!”

Surf’s Up at M Missoni


M Missoni's Resort '14

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 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.
