The Hautest of the Haute Hippies

The name Missoni is well known and loved for its vivid striped and zigzagged knitware.  

I love Missoni because it is always charming and eclectic.  They are also real clothes for everyday life.  Like this 1970s Missoni dress with its gently draped collar.  The line is long and lean - which is perfectly on trend for this season.  You just need a great flat sandal - something you had made in Capri by Les Rondini perhaps and a -well, I am torn, is it a studded Alexander Wang Lia Crossbody Bag, Proenza Schouler PS11 bag or a vintage Chanel... hmmm...  vintage Chanel of course I think!

You can also wear it with this incredible sort of kimono - it is a Missoni fantasy - just a rectangular panel, folded over to create sleeves which creates a wonderful soft kimono shape.  Or you can wear this as a beach cover up or you can wear it with a tank and jeans for a little shopping at the Maibu Country Mart.
