A bit of history… Beginning as a knitwear business, created by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in 1953, Missoni is one of the most highly recognised brands in the fashion industry, with an image maintained by a strong family work ethic. The iconic colourful zig-zag print, designed after experimenting with the Raschel knitting machine, changed the face of knitwear and is championed by creatives and consumers alike. Their fashion show debut, in Florence in 1967, proved scandalous due to their braless models, a result of the underwear showing through the transparent material used for the dresses. A blessing in disguise it seems, Yves Saint Laurent took inspiration from the line, creating his own sheer collection that year after. Reaching a newfound popularity in the 1970s, Missoni soon expanded to create Missoni Home amongst other brands under the umbrella.
Worn on the red carpet and the high street alike, Missoni is a versatile brand that’s stripes can be worn at all occasions. From Christie Turlington to Michelle Obama, Missoni suits supermodels to politicians, supermarket shoppers to royalty, memorably worn by Kate Middleton. Never releasing a dull advert, Missoni campaigns are vibrant and exciting, pictures where you notice something new every time.
