Missoni is one of the leading fashion houses and amongst the most recognized the world over. The Missoni style is the result of a long collaboration between Ottavio Missoni and his wife Rosita. After marrying in 1953, they began making knitwear pieces in a small lab in the basement of their home in Gallarate. The path undertaken by Ottavio and Rosita has been carried on by their children and grandchildren, who continue to keep the Missoni style alive in the world. In 1997, Rosita passed her leadership role as creative director to Angela, dedicating herself to the Missoni Home line, for which she is currently the Creative Director. Angela Missoni is the Creative Director of the business and is committed to infusing the family brand with new energy, communicating new trends and ideas. Luca Missoni is the Artistic Director of the Missoni Archives and is currently developing a project aimed at promoting and showing off the artistic heritage of the brand.
