Missoni showcased its Summer 2012 collection with a runway show and pop up shop to a star studded audience.
Legions of A-listers like Paris and Nicky Hilton, Gabrielle Union, Dennis Rodman, Chris Bosch and Lily Donaldson turned up to a Missoni fashion show held Saturday evening at Loren and JR Ridinger's estate. The fashion show was part of Vogue’s Annual Evenings and was presented by Nordstrom. Over 600 attendees huddled together by the couple’s poolside to see the brand’s Summer 2012 collection which was heavy on citrus, azure, mocha and cranberry tones. Models donned everything from swimwear, flower printed frocks, chiffon tops and skirts as well as pants in the label’s signature zig zag print. Bold fringe found its way onto scarves, necklaces and skirts as did flirty ruffles.
Angela and Vittorio Missoni were in attendance. Vittorio said having the fashion show during Art Basel was perfect timing. “Miami is a fantastic place for a Missoni show, said Vittori. “It’s the art, the people and the great event of Miami,” he said. Angela was impressed with how many art fair goers were donning her family's label. “You go around the fairs like Scope and I’m almost surprised how many people are wearing Missoni, said Angela. “It’s not a label that conforms.”
After the show, style setters were shopping the pop up shop set up on the grounds, Gabrielle Union who is dating Heat player Dwayne Wade was one of those guests who was perusing the racks. “I’m a lover of the Missoni family and anything they do I love,” said Union.
