Angela Missoni's Spring 2004 collection was a tribute to her family heritage, which has been defined by the art of making exceptional knitwear for half a century. The Missoni adventures through the world of zigzags, chevrons, waves and stripes that began in a small workshop set up by Rosita and Ottavio Missoni culminated in the showcasing of Angela's brilliant interpretation on October 5th. Her collection was a resonating success, for with her creations the designer not only honored the timeless craftsmanship of her family, but also took the liberty to infuse contemporary themes into her art.

Sinuously flowing wraparound dresses pulsating with dazzling strokes of color and art nouveau print hourglass garbs exploring the possibilities of texture were two of the many highlights of the collection. One of my favorite looks was a long sleeved knit bodysuit in pastel tones (enriched with a dash of yellow), worn with a knee length navy blue fluid skirt slit to the waist. The lovely Frankie Ryder sported this ensemble. Another outfit worthy of note was a red and white striped crepe dress with a fitted bodice ruched at bust level, complete with V-shaped ribbon halter straps tied around the neck.

Missoni clothes are incredibly versatile, rhythmical and sophisticated pieces of wearable art. They harbor the Italian obsession with romanticism, splendor and art in their essence. This spring if you too want to take on the mantel of a bella donna, lounging in a café across from Fontana di Trevi, go striped!
