Milan: Fashion Week – Missoni S/S 2013. The Missoni S/S 2013 woman is transformed into a presence that radiates energy, a gentle creature who is also strong and decisive, bewitchingly inescapable: a mysterious intergalactic tourist who has landed on our planet.
Missoni S/S 2013. An evanescent look as impalpable as the refraction of light, an optical illusion, a fluorescent beam. The color that surfaces from within her ensemble illuminates the essence of the Missoni weaves and the transparencies of monochromatic black or white pieces.
Missoni S/S 2013 – the venue. Away from the center of the city, the Forgiatura is a restructured industrial space, a multi purpose center designed by architect Giuseppe Tortato. It is an urban oasis characterized by landscaped artificial hills that incorporate the architectural structures.

Missoni S/S 2013. The silhouette is that of a Japanese ‘anime' heroine. A creature from an animated movie who walks and moves in zero gravity wearing pure, linear pieces, enriched with precious intarsia work, that stand out in space and create their own aura. The knit lace protects Missoni’s heroines against intergalactic winds and like tributes to the art of James Turrell, they complete the ensemble with crystal ruffs.
Missoni S/S 2013. Long, knee length and short dresses in organza and lacy knits are pervaded with appliques patterns and three dimensionalized prints, with degrade’ tonal effects, and sequined holograms that overlay the colorful shading into each other, and holograms of sequins that overlay the colorful macro-intarsias of structured knit pieces.
Missoni S/S 2013 – accessories # 2. The bags are structured, big or little in solid colors with shoulder straps sprinkled with color.
