1970s Missoni Multicolored Silk Jersey Maxi Skirt Set
Famed for their iconic kaleidoscopic knits, Missoni crafts jersey fabric into comfortable, creative clothing. Since the conception of the brand in the 1950s, Missoni has mastered the art of pattern mixing and combinations. As with this 1970s maxi skirt ensemble the geometric triangle and square pattern overlaid with diagonals creates depth and an implied texture.
With rich, multicolored hues of red, peach, olive drab, violet, light blue, and black, the overall result is one of visual harmony. A wide neckline, seamless shoulders, and dolman style sleeves soften the shoulders and allow for a relaxed fit throughout the top. The full-length skirt has a wide yoke from which the skirt is precisely pleated the width-around. Near the waist a sash finishes the skirt to be tied at the front
