M for Maldives... M for Missoni
Missioni does some of the best resort wear; their cruise collections are always a standout. Their use of colour and prints along with the amazing fit of the garments keeps their designs high up on my wish list. This inimitable style is carried forward in their M Missoni label, which is where I got this dress.
Yes, Missoni does go beyond the classic chevron pattern (which I LOVE). Picked up this knitwear dress for the purple and green combination. Besides it checks off all the oh-so-important C's, colourful, cool, chic and comfortable.
Went a little matchy-matchy with the accessories and paired the dress with Tory Burch Flip-Flops and a Furla Candy bag.
You can't go to a mall in Delhi or Bombay without spotting one of these, ever since the Italian brand setup shop in India. I find the PVC bags to be super cute and think they are ideal for an outing on the beach. Although the care instructions clearly state that one should not leave it in the sun for extended periods of time; I have taken mine out to the beach/pool many times and my bag is just fine.
I am also wearing my trusty Tom Ford sunglasses and a hand-harness from Isharya. As I was going to get into the water, I am only wearing a lip gloss when it comes to make-up and my hair was out of control thanks to the humidity so I just let it be.
