Founded in Italy in 1953 by husband and wife duo Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, the Missoni brand began life as a small knitwear workshop but began to flourish into the label we know today in 1958, when the couple presented their first collection in Milan. Their success was partly thanks to support from some of fashion’s biggest names - Italian fashion icon Anna Piaggi was one of Missoni’s first fans and they were later supported by American Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, which allowed them to open up a boutique in the legendary New York department store Bloomingdales. The brand continued to grow and is still beloved by fashionistas like Jennifer Lopez, Leighton Meester, and Kate Middleton today. Whether you go for one of their jewel-coloured dresses or a chunky cardigan, dressing in Missoni is guaranteed to make you look (and feel) brighter.
