For Missoni's A/W 2012 collection, designer Angela Missoni was inspired by a mix of urban influences and an immersion in nature and landscape. According to show notes, the woman of Autumn/Winter '12 is a "heroine in a concrete jungle", and conceives fashion as an "evocative adventurous fantasy" while maintaining a strong-willed, sophisticated yet sensitive vibe. The collection was, of course, loaded with Missoni's signature knits, but this time in a more subtle way — the zigzag print was evident in super-tight trousers and knee-length tank dresses, but soon gave way to plaid wool and alternating geometric and amorphous patterns. This urban warrior woman was protected by elbow-length leather gloves, latex corsets, and shiny metallic embellishments, as well as chunky, thin-tipped heels and boots, and carried chic square-shaped bags with chain straps and wood-grain detailing. Overall, the Missoni girl is more than prepared to battle the elements of the concrete jungle.

  • Trends: Fur accents, shoulder wraps, print mixing, long hemlines.
  • Colours: Red, rust, grey, blue, moss green, brown.
  • Key Piece: The sheer lace dress with brocade cape; the gold-encrusted party dress with black veil.
  • Accessories: Elbow-length leather gloves, thin waist belts, fur hats, thin-tipped boots and heels, geometric gold brooches.
  • Who Would Wear It: Leighton Meester, Olivia Palermo, and of course, Margherita Missoni.
