MFW: Missoni & Burberry

The layers and shapes of colours and textures in the Fall 09 collection that Missoni showed in Milan are amazing. Greys, blues, beiges and soft browns - who knew they could all be put together so well? I love the layers and layers of knits; draped, folded, peeking out from under eachother. And love the slouchy, semi-sheer leggings.

Burberry also really impressed me with their collection (I wasn't that sold on their Spring 09). Christopher Bailey played with a tried and true classic British theme - the Bloomsbury group (notably the classic looks of Virginia Wolf and Vanessa Bell) - and it worked really well. Soft, slouchy layers; floaty white dresses (in the increasingly popular calf length). I love how they are all paired with grey tights and black shoes. And am lusting after that first coat. Perfect.
