Missoni Men’s SS17 collection is the narrative link between ancient Mayan civilizations and present-day Guatemala, which is still deeply rooted in tradition. Drawing inspiration from the radiant and sacred quetzal bird, this collection takes flight, taking elements from Guatemala’s diverse and vibrant landscapes, the potent hues of their indigenous wildlife and their renowned hand-woven fabrics, dramatic and explosive colours, iconic and graphic patterns, visual and tactile textures and stunning metallic hand embroideries.

“Missoni’s artisanal and innovative spirit is in ascent as this season’s impressive knitwear reveals its own mythic tales with a gentle, Missoni nod to the colorful Guatemalan vaquero.”
