Investigators are working to determine if wreckage found on the island of Curacao came from Vittorio Missoni's missing plane.
The Curacao Chronicle confirmed that pieces of a small aircraft were found on Thursday afternoon. By Friday morning, the Italian news wire Ansa reported that the wreckage is being tested to see if it matches the Cessna 402 that was flying Missoni, his wife, and another couple from a resort in Los Roques when it disappeared on Jan. 4. The search effort has been ongoing for seven weeks, but the only elements from the plane that have been found are two pieces of luggage that washed ashore on Curacao and the nearby Bonaire Island.
For all the tartan, kilts, and handbags worn like sporrans in Moschino's Fall 2013 collection, Rossella Jardini could have moved her show from Milan to Edinburgh. Jardini has been influenced by her Anglophilia in the past, but this show opened with a series of looks that celebrated the Scottish Highlands. Blazers, coats, and dresses cut from a variety of tartans came down the runway first, some of them paired with oversize riding helmets, or accented with crests and flower embroidery. Other looks were sleeker, like a pair of gray pinstriped suits and a black dress accented with what looks like white stitching. But by and large, this ode to British fashion had a buttoned-up sense of playfulness and fun that's sure to sell well from Rome to London and beyond.
