Embodying the elsewhere — another place, time, or state of mind — is a utopia that fashion makes possible day after day: infinitely, spontaneously, and lightly.

The flutter of a ruffle and the rhythm of a pattern put the act of living in the moment under the lens of a kaleidoscope, and the result is always different. This playful Missoni Spring/Summer 24 collection arises from a cheerful question: How to enjoy reality? The answer materialises in exploring the joys of matter, shape, and colour. And then: contrasting the masculine and feminine, generous volumes and tight lines; layering transparencies over Missoni patterns; allowing “Missoni-isms” to expand onto unexpected fabrics like sangallo. Just like the combinations in a kaleidoscope are infinite, so are the Missoni ways to enjoy reality — as many as one desires.

Clothes like pieces of inlay, of a puzzle with an open ending: tailored blazers, trousers and Bermuda shorts; blouses; jumpsuits, and form-fitting dresses. And high heels, as well as statement sunglasses. All in a palette of sorbet colours, fresh and summery, mixed with whites and neutrals. Ultimately, it's about creating a form of weightless “put-together” layering.

This is what the entire show suggests, reflected in the giant spheres created by artist Shawn Kolodny that distort proportions and accentuate colours while also softening them at the same time.
