Founded in 1953 by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in Varese, Italy, Missoni’s colourful knitwear designs are instantly recognisable the world over. Fusing technical innovations with unabridged creativity, the house’s iconic zigzag motifs, stripes and wave patterns continue to evolve and grace catwalk and ready-to-wear collections for women, men and children. A household name, the innovative main line perfectly complements diffusion lines Missoni Mare, focusing on swim and beachwear, and the vibrant M Missoni. Releasing the house’s first fragrance, Missoni, to much acclaim in 2016, the brand constantly challenges and regenerates itself. Still helmed by the family dynasty, the house is currently under the leadership of Creative Director, Angela Missoni, who continues to create covetable lifestyle products and pioneering Italian fashion excellence.
