Inspired by Chinese porcelain and British pottery, Missoni introduced fresh, luxurious patterns into the Resort 2013 collection to supplement the iconic chevron they’re known for. Don’t freak, the zigzag pattern is still present, but we also dig the artistic influence Angela Missoni drew upon to create these new ombre pieces and intricate patterns. Missoni’s ability to mix patterns to create pieces that can be effortlessly interchanged for either a dressy or casual look is unparalleled. The ombre pieces are ideal for work, whereas the classic, bright zigzag patterns are perfect for lazy summer weekends on the yacht (or some more realistic variation…maybe a pool float.) One of our personal favorites is the blue blazer Elyse is modeling below simply for its gorgeous detailing. It’s the kind of piece you throw on over jeans and a simple tee, and it totally makes your outfit.
