Missoni ZigZag

November is gone with the autumn wind and an icy winter wind has blown in from the north. I’m glad we had a number of milder days to wear one of my favourite autumn coats that I bought several years ago.

My hemp scarf is bought at Drizzle and Shine, so much softer than wool and it’s an eco-fabric.

♥ strongest natural fibre
♥ pesticide free
♥ fast growing
♥ enriches the soil it is grown in
♥ produces no static electricity
♥ blocks UV rays

Missoni is an Italian fashion company that caught my eye in the ’70s when I first saw the colourful, knitted, zigzag designs. Although I never owned one, I found a Missoni inspired dress this fall. I love the autumnal colours.

The weather wasn’t warm enough on this day to go without a coat, just a quick photoshoot before my dance classes. Winter is on the way.

Have you ever bought hemp clothing?

  2. Looks great Carmen, I love the graduation of colors in your dress and the pattern of course. Your coat is so pretty and love the feminine ruffles as the bottom, making it a more unique trench 🙂 Buddling up here now as it is getting cold in NC!
    have a great weekend

  4. Oh YES, Missoni’s Zig Zag – classic pattern, classic design. And you in this dress – 🙂 so perfect. I love the colours of it. It seems like this eco fabric is something very special and comfortable. Your little bag is also very pretty and goes so well with the dress. Have a nice day – cheers – Margot 🙂

    I love this scarf, for its design and color, and also for its ecological features. I would love to buy one at Jean’s store. The dress is beautiful, with these ethnic designs, and this mixture of delicate colors. I love the design and the long, so elegant and feminine. You look really beautiful with it, and besides, knowing the ecological philosophy of the outfit, and knowing your way of living, the whole look seems charming.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! I love this scarf too for many reasons, so I bought another one in burgundy which I have worn but no photos yet, so I will show in the future. I’m glad you like my dress, it was also a design my mother loved and I think she had an original Missoni.
