Missoni is known for its knitwear, and the Fall/Winter collection doesn't disappoint, as it is filled with bright and beautiful knits. To be honest though, the real highlight just may be the killer sunglasses. Let's take a look:

After seeing so many collections reach back to the 80s, it's kind of fun to see a collection that looks as though it's made for the hip kids of 2029.

I tried to crochet a scarf once and ended up with something that looked like a sad hot dog, so the fact that this is all knitwear kind of blows my mind.

Did every designer ever have a meeting and decide to come up with this coat for F/W 2010? I am so sick of this fucking coat and it's not even Spring yet.

This is one of those outfits that you see on the runway and think, "Oh wow, how interesting," though if you saw your friend wearing it in real life, you'd say, "Oh, honey, no."

I usually do this with my comforter, though it isn't nearly as glamorous.

I am really not feeling the return of midriffs. It's just so early 00s.

This is going to be hard for anyone in the real world to pull off. Tilda Swinton, maybe?

I spend most of my time in the house wrapped up in a crocheted blanket. (Mr. Pietra refers to this practice as "blanketizing.") I had no idea I was on the forefront of modern fashion.

ETA: I have a fur element, too: a large Maine Coon who insists on sitting on my lap at all times.
