- "The brand's signature zigzag patterns were turned into wave and seagull motifs on skirts and blouses, and an archive print of the house's logo was adapted to graphic effect on several outfits." [AFP]
- "The Missoni summer look is ethnic without going native." [AP]
- "Angela Missoni took her signature collection all the way back to what is truly essential, the four basic elements of life: earth, water, fire and air. This focus on the fundamentals proved to be exactly what this house needed." [NOWFASHION]
- "While this collection included multitudes, it never felt too busy." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
- "The Missoni collection put forth by designer Angela Missoni can only be described at heartbreakingly beautiful." [Speakeasy/
- "Somewhere between the elongated pencil skirts with the deep kick pleat and the dégradé fringed pieces, Missoni edged into a land of confusion." [Style.com]
- "Milan has been filled with pleasant surprises this week, from the sunny, 70-degree weather to the 'this can’t really be someone’s home' private gardens that have been opened up for presentations and parties. Count the Missoni show as one more." [Vogue.com]
- "When show-goers are feeling a little jaded, or even a little smug, that feeling of yes-I-know-exactly-what-will-come-marching-down-this-runway, they delight in delivering a bolt from the blue. That happened this afternoon at Missoni, a house where you can pretty much bet your life on a zig-zag knit, pretty as they are, time and time again. Or not, as today’s show proved." [Vogue.com UK]
- "All mixed together, they pulled Missoni into multiple directions." [WWD]
