Resort 2013 Missoni Raspberry & White Fully Sequinned Knit Halter Slip Dress
For the Resort collection of 2013, Angela Missoni said that she 'looked at Chinese porcelain and British pottery, for its delicate brushstroke motifs, picked out in embroidery on knits, and the somewhat less delicate intarsias that looked like smashed fragments pieced back together.' The result of that were beautiful pieces like this dress that re-imagined the classic Missoni look in a new unexpected way.
This was Look 26 in the presentation and sold out worldwide once it landed in the shops. It is a figure skimming halter dress in a fine knit that showcases a variation of the Missoni signature zigzag. Here it is refined and made more delicate. The different way that the design has been manipulated before it is applied to the knit gives it that wonderful design that creates the pattern from shoulder to hem. The entire dress is then covered in clear sequins. The sequins are done in two sizes - a small sequin and a very tiny version. This changing of the sequin sizes creates its own secondary pattern over the knit base and the effect is wonderful. The entire dress shimmers as it catches the light. The knit base is backed in a fine silk chiffon that allows the dress to drape over the body and molds to hugs your curves but in a relaxed and easy way that makes it even sexier. It looks to have never been worn and is cut supermodel long. I love it. Excellent condition
