After presenting its Spring/Summer 2020 collection that referenced the looks of Serge Gainsbourg, Missoni returns with a new range of apparel for Fall/Winter 2020. This time, the brand takes inspiration from the evolving jazz scene of the ’70s and ’80s. The result is a collection of varying textures, colors and patterns that reflect a changing time in both music and culture.

Missoni’s collection for the season focuses on light and airy knitwear that act as outerwear pieces. Highlights include shawl-collar cardigans, patchwork-like sweaters and multi-stitch jacquards from the archives. Other key pieces include a nappa leather bomber jacket, a double-breasted coat and a reversible hooded blouson. Elsewhere, a shirt is made out of an exclusive cashmere pashmina fabric, while a reversible car coat comes in a cotton and wool blend. For a more eclectic and bohemian style, loose-fitting trousers are crafted from dyed patchwork and reworked military boots arrive in a variety of colorful leathers.

As a way to reflect the “harmonic performances of visual sounds,” an array of materials interact with each other in “improvised” ways. Delicate cashmere and silk combine with brushed cotton, felted wool and mohair to create modernist cuts and over-sized silhouettes. The collection’s color palette is far from muted, employing midnight blues, jade greens, burnt ambers and more for a vibrant feel and energy.

Take a look at the Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook in the gallery above and stay up to date with collection releases on Missoni’s website.

Elsewhere, Fendi delivered a ’70s-inspired collection at its Fall/Winter 2020 runway show.
