For his first show as Creative Director of the maison, Alberto Caliri focuses on the most essential and authentic spirit of the Missoni DNA: a heritage made of artistic flair and effortlessness, imagination and realness, revolutionary audacity and bourgeois elegance.
With the Spring/Summer 2022 season, Missoni celebrates an independent and decisive femininity. The body and the skin become tools of self-expression for assertive, emotional and confident women. The late 90s influence a certain awareness in the search for a type of beauty that is a pleasure to be unapologetically satisfied.
The flexuosity of the female forms is exalted in all its diverse declinations.
Artsy patchworks, evoking the eccentric tapestries of Tai Missoni, beloved founder of the fashion house, are assembled creating the constructions of small pieces wrapping around the body with immediate, yet precious lightness. Knitwear dresses reveal a seductive fringed effect... unfinished detail epitomizing the essence of Missoni's craftsmanship.
The label's iconic patterns, the legendary flamed motifs, are always there, but they are hidden among the metallic gleams of coated textures, recalling the sinuous fluidity of mercury. Hit by the light, they shine with silver reflections and, following the movements of the body, they reveal the patterns' geometric harmony.
