Angela Missoni isn't the first designer to send light, breezy clothing down the runway for Spring 2013, but the gauzy, sheer dresses she showed in Milan on Sunday were among the finest we've seen this season. What set this collection apart was how unMissoni many of its pieces were. The house's iconic multicolored knits were at once present and hidden, sometimes veiled by sheer layers of organza or stitched together in similarly colored fabrics that made their patterns more subtle. In other places, the collection simplified the Missoni chevron by zooming in on it and reducing it to stripes or triangular shapes. There were also a lot of pure-white pieces on this runway, inspired by an all-white Missoni suit that appeared on the cover of French Elle in the '60s. After all, you can't know where you're going unless you know where you've been.
