Famous for “zigging” and “zagging” in fashion, designer Angela Missoni captures sharp-angled geometric patterns with an unusual softness that remains unique. Perhaps it is the gauzy, light-as-air knits the Italian luxury house specializes in; perhaps it is the smart, optically challenging palettes that seem otherworldly. Missoni has managed to weave the brand’s iconic zigzags into everything from dizzying pantsuits to oversize coats to barely-there bathing suits—while still making the tightly wound pattern seem fresh. One thing is for certain: Missoni’s hypnotic designs and multicolored magic make for absolute perfection as an inspiration for nail art. Guest artist San Sung Kim isolated three strengths from Missoni for her nail creations: seamlessly blending the iconic zigzag with disparate patterns; simplifying the geometric design with smart color palettes; and evoking the delicate texture of knits with a gossamer-like creation that even incorporates crochet details.
