Missoni Menswear spring 2014
Nature is usually a good source of inspiration for art. Sometimes, it also transcends into clothing. Like walking landscapes, Missoni Menswear spring 2014 collection incorporates the day and night terrain of West Africa. Creative Director Angela Missoni successfully pairs tans and indigo blues into one superb assemblage that flows like a wide-sky’s sunset. Teaming up with Hancock of Scotland, the two brands created exclusive outwear pieces that are smack-dab dapper.
Patterns and classic Missoni knits are not forgotten, hitting a very high note. Our favorite look is the oversized plaid Tomek Szczukiecki is sporting. The tan, blue, and gray shades are intermingled throughout, sometimes combined into one look. There’s also touches of light pink that resemble the color of the sky during a sunrise. There’s an African tribal print that’s placed on polo shirts for a more unconventional take on a classic male staple. High-waisted pants look so effortlessly cool. A man will gain instant confidence wearing those. We can’t help but think this line is simply for “Mr. Cool.” It’ easygoing, it’s comfortable, it’s what menswear clothing is.
There’s playful plaid pieces and delicate details in woven knit blazers that are ready-to-wear for a vacation excursion. Even though the inspiration stems from Africa, these looks can we worn all over. It’s a worldwide sense of style in one collection. Nothing too shocking, but still effortless hip. Even masculine neckwear and bags feel fresh. We’re obsessed. fdmLOVES MISSONI menswear spring 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa,
