Missoni Goes for Comfort @ Milan Fashion Week
By SENATUS News | 4 March 2013
Missoni gives women something to slip into next winter — and to slip out of. The predominantly casual looks, previewed on Sunday, the fifth day of Milan Fashion Week, blurred the lines between lounge wear, underwear and outwear.

Many of the overcoats resembled robes, worn languidly hanging from one shoulder and fittingly were tied with a ribbon "ready to be fastened and unfastened while in motion." Underneath were thinly knit men's pyjamas or silky dresses resembling negligees.

Sheath dresses were worn with unique net stockings, creating fresh textures, and knee-high boots. Panels of some of the dresses, skirts and tops were left provocatively transparent.

Shades were frosty whites, pinks or greys, along with stronger shades of grey or black.

These are looks to tuck into, which Missoni underlined sweetly by leaving chocolates on fashionistas' seats.

Designer Angela Missoni waved briefly at the fashion crowd, something she couldn't bring herself to do at the menswear previews last month, just after her brother Vittorio, the label's CEO, had disappeared after takeoff from a Venezuelan vacation island along with five others. Neither the plane nor any of the occupants have been located, although two suitcases that were on board have washed up on shore, one on Curacao and the other on Bonaire.

Missoni said after the show that she "continues to hope," because "one is only speaking of hypotheses not of evidence."

"It is a singular moment, very tiring, the most difficult of my life, but we were born with large shoulders, I hope, of course I hope," she said.
