Missoni’s presentation took place in its large white showroom, in which sculptures by the Swedish-Chilean artist Anton Alvarez had been installed. These were made using an enormous machine that, like a big toothpaste tube, squeezes out ceramic paste into various tubular shapes. The clothes chimed with the artist’s aesthetic, primarily the tonal dégradés of the suits and coats that echoed Alvarez’s vibrant colour palette, but also the design of some of the knitwear, which was decorated with more dégradé abstract motifs, while the wavy shapes of the sculptures were reflected in the hand-embroidery on one high-necked chunky sweater. Everything was paired with high-waist tapered trousers in soft yet eye-catching colours. The lamé dinner jackets inspired by the ’70s diverged from the style but came in the same intense colours as the rest of the collection.
