I awoke this morning after a horrible night of sleep filled with nightmares, only to jump on the computer and find this breathtaking collection from Missoni which made me erase all the bad thoughts in my head. This is my absolute favorite Missoni collection to date. Going back to the Missoni family roots, the collection was filled with a stunning array of textured knits in the most beautiful color palette I have yet to see for Fall ’09. Salmon, heather grey, ecru, shocking bright blues mixed with smoky blues, creamy peach – all of these mixed together to give a warm autumn feeling to the nomad look carried throughout. It was all about the layering with lightweight leggings ruched at the knees, billowy coats worn over floral print dresses, extra long scarves (LOVE), bushy fur collars, cowl necks wrapped around the head and left to drape, and chunky knit arm warmers. Hausfrau Chic meets Global Nomad meets the Princess of Planet Earth – this collection matters.
