Milano: Missoni Winter 2012 Collection

Milano: Missoni Winter 2012 Collection.  Called Like a Heroine in a Concrete Jungle, the Missoni winter 2012 collection is urban, but also pervaded with reference to soil and moss, leaves and barks of trees, rocks and minerals, the woman of the Missoni winter collection conceives fashion as an evocative adventurous fantasy, a dream in the city of immersion in nature, of empathy and mimesis with landscape.

Tip. Lucia says “Use a darker color on your eyebrow and brush it lightly for nice bushy eyebrows.”

Missoni Winter 2012 Collection – hair.  Hair stylist Eugene Souleiman with the plaid shirt and knitted hat created the hairstyle using Wella Professional products. “The hairstyle is square to look at. It’s minimal in a new way, it’s opulent and feminine, it’s serious and pared down and looks different from different angles.  The girls look handsome and intelligent.” He explained.
