Created by Rosita and Ottavio Missoni, the couple were at the helm of the Missoni brand for more than 60 years and together they invented a unique and inimitable style instantly recognisable around the world. Meeting in 1948 and marrying in 1953, their combined experiences and talents have created a fashion story that is still considered the greatest expression of Made in Italy design. After decades at the helm of the fashion empire, Rosita handed this aspect of the brand over to her daughter, Angela, in 1997 to devote her time to the newly launched Missoni Home collection.
The home is Rosita Missoni’s great passions and she has personally cared for the Missoni Home brand since it foundation. Often commenting that ‘the home is alive. It’s constantly evolving and never finished’ Rosita has over the years curated a collection of unmistakeable and decorative fabrics and furnishings for interior spaces which are both modular and versatile. In the Missoni Home collection the brand’s story continues with the power of contrasts between iconic zigzags, polychrome lines, patchwork and coloured flames, alternating with hypnotic flowers and abstract geometrics.
Missoni Home’s iconic prints are combined with the quality and performance expected of luxury homeware to give the pieces an unusual vivacity. The resulting savoir faire which has been handed down the generations is beautifully expressed in the rich collection of eye-catching and effortlessly Italian homeware designs.
