Missoni is a knitwear business founded by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in 1953. The brand’s first creation was knit tracksuits with zippers at the ankle, a detail that would come back in style about 60 years later. Missoni made its runway debut in 1967 in Florence with sheer dresses that exposed the models’ underwear, which proved to be as controversial as it was eye-catching. After winning over Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, the brand experienced massive success in the United States and Europe. While Missoni is best known for womenswear, Missoni’s menswear line produces plenty of sweaters, T-shirts and shirts.
