Speaking of Missoni, Angela totally killed it for Fall '09 RTW. The theme? Wrap yourself in incredibly snuggly knits from head to floor.

I especially love the leggings and the little banded ankle pants that come in the iconic zigzag knit. Oh, and the luxe color palette: blushy peach, light blue, taupe, nude, gray.

I have an unnatural aversion to blue because I think it's boring, but the pops of sky and cerulean sprinkled throughout the collection are anything but predictable.

A ready-to-wear collection that is actually ready to wear? I imagine Missoni will do quite well this year, despite the oh noes! worldwide economic apocalypse.

  1. Amazing collection. Thanks so much for the comments on my blog. It's so cool that you are a philosophy TA! Hopefully, I'll end up at Grad school eventually and will be a TA as well! (Just not in philosophy).

  2. I like shoes and long winter scarfs, but not in such combinations. I have to admit that I expected more. I can understand that anything as the trend goes, but look like homeless, and still give a lot of money for this?

    im not so sure i agree!!! i LOOOOOVE missoni for being soooo luxurious, and while the collection was coherent and well-executed, i just thought it was OTT. but missoni is def an investment brand...and the knits are gorgeous i'll give u that! cheers babe!

  4. I think every one of these would look better without the floor-dragging scarves. Or, better, drop the weird cowl things and wrap the scarves, at least somewhat. Don't drag your expensive knits through the mud, girlies--use them to stay warm!

  5. I do love leggings with bulky layers!
    Cons: your long scarf gets caught in the subway door
    Pros: you can use the layers as blankets when shit goes down in 2012 "Children of Men" style.

  6. I'm in love with the leggings and stupid long scarves. Then again I just love Missoni.

  7. I usually don't go for blue either ...but sometimes am surprised by it ...love these floor-length scarves!

  8. so snuggly, wish i was walking around like this in the cold winters of london!
