In a Reimagination of Roses, Missoni is in Full Bloom for Fall 2023

Filippo Grazioli presents a louder, more expressive collection in his second season.

In Filippo Grazioli’s second display at the head of Missoni, the creative director exhibits  unbridled expression, playing with the ideas of femininity and love. An inherently modern assemblage of pieces, the fall collection drew upon a single archival component: a flower motif designed in the 80s. Here, the rose, a symbol intrinsically representative of love, is reimagined, breathing new air into the print. 

Missoni plays with the idea of multiplicity, shifting between slinky, form fitting dresses and heavier, masculine tailoring. It tells the story of a woman who sees herself as both delicate and strong, yet allows herself to exist in fragility and imperfection. In many ways, she is the modern woman; commended for her power, but encouraged to give herself grace. 

Signature knitted patterns, the zig-zag and the fiammato, take on new forms — some blown out of proportion and others gently minimized. Innovation continues as these patterns are melded with animal spots, bringing about fresh new combinations. 

Duality returns with the color palette, which swung from warm rust-tones and intense browns to touches of mauve and whispers of pale green. Flitting between the micro and macro, the collection plays with proportions in the garments and the prints that envelope them.

Flashes of luminescent fabrics, dangling earrings, and sequined low cut slips forebode a sexier Missoni in seasons to come.
