Milano: Missoni Men’s Winter 2014 Collection

Milano: Missoni Men’s Winter 2014 Collection.  The Missoni man like a nomad “surfer” roams from place to place in his exclusive Missoni clothes; loom knits in noble fibers, all produced in the factory in Sumirago. The men’s collection is characterized this season in softly tailored, compact, cashmere, checked coats; Japanese-inspired wrapped shawl neck cardigans lined with shearling; loose fitted trousers and pullovers in Missoni's iconic knit and blazers all utilizing silhouettes, color tones and textures that evoke the effortless and relaxed lifestyle of the spirited young “surfers”.
