The Missoni Home story
The Missoni Home Collection was launched in 1983 and has been managed by Rosita Missoni since 1997. At that time, the grande dame of Italian fashion and founder of the Missoni fashion label actually wanted to go into well-deserved retirement. She had previously handed over the management of the company to her sons Vittorio and Luca and appointed her daughter Angela as creative director. But after a few weeks she came back and took care of the Missoni Home Collection as Creative Director. Rosita Missoni proved that the fabulous Missoni fashion patterns enrich any interior with elegance and refinement.
Variable patterns in ever new variations
Today, Rosita Missoni, over 80, is still responsible for the look of Missoni Home's home accessories and terry towelling. She never runs out of ideas for ever new variations of zigzag, striped or flower designs. "These are endlessly variable patterns," Rosita Missoni once said in an interview. The patterns she loves, which are not least the formula for Missoni Home's success. "Design and style are important even to young people today, as I can see from my grandchildren. Interior has become fashion."
How Missoni's success began
The history of the Missoni Home brand goes back to 1948, when 16-year-old Rosita meets her future husband Ottavio. In 1953 they founded a couture house in Lombardy, not far from the cloth factory of Rosita's grandparents, where as a young child Rosita was already playing with fabric remnants, yarn reels and embroidery. The Missonis celebrated their first great success when they presented their first Missoni collection in 1966. From now on, the colourful zigzag pattern appears more and more frequently on the cover pages of international fashion magazines. Knitwear, until then the epitome of stuffness, suddenly became chic. When US vogue made the label famous, it first conquered the USA and then captivated fashion enthusiasts all over the world. In 1979 Missoni launches the first men's collection. This was followed by Missoni collections for fragrances, accessories, beachwear, children's fashion and finally, in 1983, the Missoni Home Collection.
