Romance: The location was at the beautiful Università degli Studi with cobblestones and endless arcades bordering the greener than green garden.
Intimacy: What was lovely about the show, other than the collection of course, were the guests. Sure, there were your industry regulars, but there were also friends and family of the Missonis. Knowing Missoni is a family run business, having their close friends around made the event seem less mainstream. I got to meet a Missoni family friend. Andrea Ferrero. Andrea is a friend of Ottavio Missoni Junior. The two go kite surfing together. Andrea not only bears the quintessential Italian name by birth, but also in style, as evidenced by his outfit. His shirt is from Boggi, jacket from Boglioli, pants from Grifoni and his shoes are handmade Belfiore. His sunglasses are from Ralph Lauren - oh, such treachery!
