Missoni Knit Dress

I realise that this is the second Missoni thing I have showcased in as many weeks (here's the first). I guess I can declare that officially, it is probably one of my favourite design houses of all time. I love the intricacy involved in how they put together their knit fabrics, the colors they use…and I love how lightweight a lot of the pieces are - even those that are made from wool (perfect for transitional weather and er...unpredictable climates). I especially love that it started out as a family-run textile business in Italy that has managed to keep re-inventing itself to endure decades in the fashion industry; all the while retaining its unique and unmistakable point of view.

This particular specimen is a lightweight knit dress that is about the easiest thing to wear on the planet. You just pull it on over your head and you're done. Easy to layer under things, easy to wear on it's own, easy to love. The fit of this dress to me is the perfect way to do something more form-fitting. It's not skin-tight, but just form fitting enough to be a great day-into-night transition piece that makes it the perfect dress to be lurking with intent under that respectable blazer that you wore to the office today. You know…the one that really should let its hair down more often and have some fun.

  1. Love this dress and the color is so flattering!

  2. It's a beautiful dress. The colours and the cut are very flattering on you. I've seen a couple of Missoni pieces at the Winner's (TJX) stores near me and I'm drawn to them like a magnet. Even discounted they're way out of my current budget, but, maybe someday. Enjoy your dress and be sure to take it out often.

  3. fabulous dress! looks great with those cool booties too. xox

  4. What a gorgeous dress! I love the color!

  5. That is a GREAT dress! You look hot!

  6. Did you actually begin by apologizing for posting two Missoni pieces from your wardrobe recently? Are you NUTS? They're just what we need/want to see ... I'll never get a look at a real one IRL, so share 'um if you got 'um! Lovely on you, by the way. Really flattering on your gorgeous figure with your long legs, etc. (Harrumph.) Can't wait to see it yet again with some over the knee boots and a great jacket or coat as winter saunters in. Hint, hint. Sigh.

  7. I am in love.With your dress that is. The ombre colors are gorgeous, and Missoni woo! I love the pairing with the pointed bootie, you look amazing!
