Autumn may be the season of falling leaves and cozy sweaters, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep a bit of summer with us as the weather turns colder. On the Missoni runway at Milan Fashion Week this weekend, the designer showed a colorful take on cat-eye makeup that’s super summery but also perfect for fall — a reminder of warmer weather and a way to brighten up the all-black outfits we tend towards in the colder months.
Few designers are known for their innovative use of color like Missoni. Since 1953, the Italian fashion brand has been pumping out one-of-a-kind knitted designs in colorful patterns. This season, Missoni continued the tradition with its Spring 2018 ready-to-wear collection.
In honor of Angela Missoni’s 20th anniversary as the brand’s creative director, the runway was styled a bit more freely as part of the celebration. During Saturday’s show, co-ed models walked the runway in sparkly tights, oversized floppy hats, sheer dresses, thin neck scarves and more. Then, to really get the party started, select female models in the show wore superhero capes (perhaps a political statement?) and neon-colored cat-eye makeup.
