Designed to be equal parts functional and stylish, Missoni Spring/Summer 2017 caters to jetsetters seeking beachwear that is easy to pack and even easier to wear.

As a heritage brand, family is of paramount value to Angela Missoni, a fact that directly impacted her travel-inspired Missoni presentation for Spring/Summer 2017. When Angela departed for a summer vacation with family, she had a leisure wardrobe in mind. It needed to be functional, stylish, easy to pack, and even easier to wear.

Fortunately, a knitwear brand has all of the tools necessary to create the perfect holiday wardrobe in its arsenal – all Missoni had to do was pare back the silhouette and ramp up the color palette. Therefore, Missoni’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection was entirely made up of iconic Missoni knits, which were transformed into abbreviated beachwear, lightweight tank dresses, and sarong-like wraps.

A parade of slinky tunic tanks, color-blocked crochet dresses, ankle-length cardigans, spangled mini skirts, and barely-there bikinis assured plenty of layering potential. Lean columnar lines, colorful knits, and flimsy textures informed the effortless nature of Missoni’s work, and a simple proposition like this one has the potential to be a boon to stylish jetsetters the world over. Essentially, if you’re looking for a travel wardrobe, you can pack up this entire collection in your suitcase, mixing and matching to your heart’s content. There is nothing complicated about Missoni’s collection, but that’s precisely part of its charm.
