Stylish, charming and fabulously Italian- Angela Missoni was all that and more! I had the pleasure of meeting the daughter of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni at the launch of the brand’s Pre Fall 2012 collection at Boutique 1, in Dubai this week. The charismatic and refreshingly unassuming scion of the Italian knitwear empire is not just the Creative Director at Missoni, but also has honor of carrying the legacy of Missoni forward.
The Pre Fall ‘12 collection itself is ultra-feminine and form fitting, showing off an elegant, slim silhouette. I particularly loved the high collar and the signature layering with the emphasis, this time, on the narrow waistline and wide belts .
The house of Missoni has taken a bold step this season towards evening wear- a relatively unchartered territory for them. An outstanding little yellow evening dress stood inside the preview area that had me enchanted. I’m not sure if that’s something I’d personally pick but it definitely had enough star power to be a head turner.
In all, a delightful collection and a lovely evening spent with a legend in her own right.
