It might not look like it at first, but the Missoni Pre-Fall 2014 collection was inspired by the study of birds, which is known as ornithology. Although not as colorful as one would imagine considering the source, the patterns, textures and overall flair of the designs are worthy of the species referenced.
Of course, the Missoni Pre-Fall 2014 lookbook highlights the predominantly monochromatic palette and straight lines with the use of a colorblocked and geometric backdrop. Nevertheless, what it accentuates the most is the brand's pension for busy patterns, which mimic the exotic plumage that can be found on birds. Not to mention that the structured sleeves on a knit wool jacket are meant to resemble wings and many of the cuts denote movement.
