Missoni

Spring Summer 2019

missoni clothing for men

Encounters, in another place and another time.
The ancestral in fast-forward, and the other way round.

A primal story of gossamer textures, airy volumes and craft. Primeval as the urge to wrap and cover up.
Primary as the touch of the human hand.

Geo-cultural connections in the atmosphere.
A crossing of worlds as a crossing of textures.
Opposites that merge and flow, liquefying one into the other.

An effortless wardrobe of gauzy dresses, long cardigans, knitted denim, liquid trousers, long t-shirt, kimono coats mixed and matched in effortless ways, bridging civilizations in borderless layerings.

A journey or a trip, collecting bits and pieces, finding the link between this and that. A breezy way to reconnect with nature. An airy way to leap into the future.

Lightness of feelings as lightness of dressing, with no extra emotional baggage.

The long silhouette is dematerialised by the crafted transparency of textures, superimposed to create depth, weightlessly.

An interplay of opening and closing, buttoning and wrapping, pulling over and fastening. Complexities that are solved easily, around the female and male form.

An organic movement from pale to natural to soft to blue.
The human urge to decorate oneself, using found charms as little nods.

Ends that meet endlessly. Encounters, for days on end. An earthy feeling.

Canada's Julie Shum is an experienced traveler. She has traveled through four of the seven continents, with hopes to visit them all. Her travel has ranged from luxury trips to backpacking, and she has traveled extensively through China, "specifically to explore my heritage and culture," she explains. Julie's thirst for travel was further fueled when her brother was affected by a disease that left him paralyzed, "He used to love to explore destinations that are off the beaten path. Since he couldn't continue to do so, I now carry on that desire to go to places that are inaccessible to him and share those experiences with him when I return home.

Julie has worked as a project manager at a computer hardware manufacturer in Toronto, consulting on supply chain and logistics strategies for Fortune 500 companies. She is also the owner of a backpack and travel gear company. "The goal of my company is to promote adventure travel, global volunteerism and contribute to charities," she explains. "My company currently supports the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and a Canadian-based NGO dedicated to international youth development." Julie returns to her fifth 4 Deserts event at the Sahara Race (Namibia) 2016 after working on the volunteer team at the Gobi March (China) 2011 and 2015, Atacama Crossing (Chile) 2012 and RacingThePlanet: Madagascar 2014.
