Milan Fashion Week started off on a somber note Saturday, as the design world maintained a vigil for the missing CEO of the family-run Missoni fashion house.
At least the fashion world can agree on one antidote to the financial crisis: Color.
Missoni's look for next winter is urban nymph. In the woodland fairy sense.
It's all about the jet-setter life on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Calif, so it's no surprise that the Italian fashion dynasty, the Missonis, as well as Somali-born model Iman are landing there this weekend to christen their new homes. Or, more accurately, their new homages.
With a tip of the hat _ raffia that is _ Milan designers salute old-style summer elegance, as they preview next year's warm weather styles.
