Missoni Winter 2017 collection

Composed Dynamism. Order materializes from disorder. Sculptural contours delineate geometric figures. Intersecting lines contrast the material with the immaterial. Tonal glows and slumbering darkness surrender to the spirituous play of light.

This is the backdrop upon which this season’s Missoni Man comes to life.
