When it comes to stylish colour combinations and geometric prints, Missoni has been doing it the longest and, arguably, the best. The famed Italian fashion house was one of the first to branch out into interior design—proof of its pioneering attitude. Its runway collections have been described as wearable art and the label’s much-loved prints have transferred seamlessly into the realm of interiors.
In the modern-day world of throwaway fashion and interiors, Missoni stands out from the crowd by offering those with a penchant for quality, creations without an expiration date. Combining a contemporary flavour with age-old luxury materials, the brand’s interiors branch, Missoni Home Collection, satisfies the modern and traditional cravings of the interior-savvy contingent in one fell swoop.
The Missoni story starts way back in 1953 when its founder Ottavio and Rosita married and set up a small knitwear shop in Italy. Together they built their small family firm into a fashion juggernaut with the help of their daughter, Angela, and her two brothers, Vittorio and Luca. The brand’s eye for mixing and matching colours to kaleidoscopic effect, from simple stripes to captivating chevrons, earned it a global reputation. With fashion lines for women, men and children as well as beachwear, fragrances and accessories, it seems there’s nothing the brand can’t do
