Bold Missoni Pattern - A Staple In Fashion For Decades
Only a handful of fabric patterns in the world have gained recognition like Missoni. The multi-colored chevron pattern is a symbol for Italian luxury and style. It was only a matter of time until the wild zigzag print jumped from clothes to homedecor.
From the very beginning Missoni has captivated its audience. Ottavio Missoni at the time was an international athlete who began designing wool track-suits for the Italian team at the 1948 Olympics in London. Soon after meeting his wife Rosita Jelmini, daughter of a family of shawl makers, the story of Missoni began and the Italian fashion house was born. Ten years later the very first collection was presented in Milan and called Milano-Sympathy. It wasn’t until the show in April of 1967 at the Pitti Palace in Florence that Missoni became known globally. Rosita Missoni instructed the models to remove undergarments since they mismatched and showed through the blouses. Under the exquisite Italian sun, the models clothing became transparent and word spread fast. Missoni was the designer everyone knew about.
It’s no surprise that Missoni was not invited back to Milan the following year but there was no shortage of the signature print all over Vogue. By 1983 the first boutique inside Bloomingdales opened up as well as Missoni Home. The company embraced a whole new assortment of textiles and designs and from that point on the company has expanded.
