Today, it’s world-renowned as a high-end clothing label with an insatiable love of zigzags, luxe knit fabrics, and geometric shapes — but Missoni actually started from very humble beginnings. Founded in the 1950s by Italian husband-and-wife team Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, the company began as a basement studio workshop anchored by two knitting machines and a collection of ideas. Word about Missoni’s bold, innovative patterns gradually spread among the fashion-following public — eventually reaching legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, who promoted the brand in the pages of her magazine. Missoni’s super-stylish footwear complements its dresses, pants, and M Missoni collection by reproducing the iconic zigzag and chevron motifs on flat espadrilles, crochet-paneled wedges, embroidered peep-toe booties, and sky-high heels. Looking for something subtler? Try Missoni’s combat boots in basic brown suede, or white striped canvas sling-backs with lace-up fronts.
Heading to the beach? Don't leave home without these essentials to help you pack up and cover up. Think floppy sun hats with ribbon trim, gauzy cotton scarves splashed with ombre fades and seaworthy stripes, and oversized canvas totes with twisted rope handles — and room for your sunscreen and favorite summer reads.
