Knit Wit

I've never really been a big fan of Missoni's woven knit stuff. The colors are fun, but their signature zig-zag pattern is just not for me. I was, however, happy with a select number of their looks from their 2008 RTW (with the exceptions of fur garmets).

I was visually thrilled by the monumental, breast-plate necklace donned by Lily Donaldson. Also, notice the non-repulsive poncho.
The close up.
I found the necklace reminiscent of Mary Katrantzou's (of Central Saint Martins graduating class) designs featured earlier this week.

Back to Missoni. Below, I found the scarf very dramatic (good dramatic!)-- they definitely styled it right. The looks was overall conservative, but the print is playful and the peeking-out shoulder is only a little bit flirty.

Beautiful details by the neck and torso. My only complaint is the bottom of the dress. Sort of reminds me of a big black garbage bag.
Photos from style.com, as usual. Click here for more. Excluding the fur deal and this number (even so, feast your eyes on the studded boots), this season Missoni definitely did right.

I'm also not a huge fan of Missoni but sheesh this jewellery is quite spectacular - not that I'd ever wear it, it's not quite the stuff that fits into a normal person's life:)

I have never though non repulsive ponchos exists until now! I like it, its quite "cape - ish" (if that counts as a word..)
