>> Margherita Missoni was dangled above Venice in Missoni wings and dress to kick off the annual carnival last week, but this afternoon, she was right outside her mother's show in Milan, smoking while everyone waited to get inside. The collection that debuted is one of the first this season that has really seemed to invigorate everyone about next season — online and front row viewers alike seem to be in raptures. The styling, impeccable — layers and layers of scarves wrapped heads loosely, cardigans fitted under jackets and over leggings — knitwear everywhere, as the brand's heritage dictates. Even in a palette of neutrals with the occasional staccato of blue, the looks were gripping, seamless — and no doubt, we'll be a seeing a lot more of them in the months to come.
