Missoni feted its 65th anniversary on Saturday night during Milan Fashion Week, but instead of celebrating the milestone with a boisterous, high-profile runway show (as it did last season, with its ’70s- and Caribbean-inspired fall ’18 collection), the Italian fashion house opted for a quiet, dreamy vibe to mark the occasion.
Held outside at MiCO, Milan’s exhibition center, the show featured a collection that was both cozy and ethereal and put the brand’s gossamer threads on full display. There were plenty of slinky tank dresses and matching robes, pieces that seemed wearable as both pajamas and clothing to leave the house in — day or night. On foot, models wore a flat slipper with a slingback strap and puffs of fuzzy texture on the front.
Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid all walked the show, wearing different colors of the cozy, furry footwear. Gigi Hadid hit the runway in denim-like knit pants, a checked robe coat done in different shades of blue, a metallic knit shrug and fuzzy slippers in light blue.
Bella Hadid wore a wool knit cardigan robe with the slippers and the effect was that of a dreamy, sartorial nap — in the best possible way.
