My First Missoni

There are few things sexier and more effortlessly elegant than knit worn on its own. (My most profuse apologies for shamelessly using the S word to refer to myself..) After years of mulling over it, I picked up my first Missoni sweater a few days ago, and have been wearing it quite frequently since.

Missoni is a worthy investment. Their sweaters are well-knit, they fit flatteringly, and the patterns, new every season, are iconically Italian-dandy. I’d highly recommend getting a deep v-neck, as pictured, or a cardigan; the styling possibilities are limitless. However, the impending collaboration with Target raises in me suspicions of possible tragic brand dilution.. But on a lighter note, detail shots:
the vibrant blend of magenta, pale yellow, and green
the usual wrist mix spring-ified by a cord of hemp and yellow string from Macau

These were my go-to shoes last lazy winter. Walking through the wet and salty snow has rendered the shoes creased and nearly balded on certain spots, but I find myself liking them even better this way. If a young Hugh Hefner skateboarded and still wanted to look suave, these are the shoes he’d wear.

    Oooph Izzy the S word! Hot AND Heavy! I would be mightily interested to see the Dandy himself (yes that's happening right there) take on the more crazy missoni patterns. Lets make that happen! Calling Angela: we have a Filipino here who needs to style some of your shit!

    As for the shoes, Wabi Sabi Baby! nothing says old money like balding velvet!

    No matter how I try to shy away from colour, I surprisingly still have a heart for Missoni. I guess those things I've loved from childhood will often always carry on to the present.

    And I somehow got motivated to work on my first Missoni piece thanks to you! haha

    Love how the simplicity of the whole wardrobe gives an oomph vibe.
