When it came to beauty, a whole other set of surprises was in store. The au-naturel look typical to the Missoni runway was ditched in favour of a playfully amped up, space-age anime aesthetic.

Complete with the most gorgeous vintage glassware from the folks over at BYOB Cocktail Emporium, these nine designer-inspired cocktail recipes that are sure to rock the socks off your most stylish friends.
