The Missoni style reflects the successful venture of a husband and-wife team: after they married in 1953, Ottavio and Rosita decided to start a knitwear business that went on to become an icon of Italian fashion in the mid-Sixties. Missoni introduced and successfully established an unmistakable way of dressing and living: from the boldly colorful “put together” concept of zigzags, stripes, waves and flame stitches to patchworks of geometric and floral jacquards. The couple became a family and their three children, Vittorio, Luca and Angela, born between 1954 and 1958, grew up in close contact with their parentsʼ work. Today Missoni is one of the most widely respected ambassadors of Italian fashion and design around the world. Angela Missoni is the Creative Director of Missoni today.
