Ottavio Missoni

Missoni is one of the best known, loved and recognized fashion and design brands in the world. Synonymous with excellent knitwear, the history of Missoni began in 1953 when Ottavio Missoni and his wife Rosita Jelmini founded a laboratory in Gallarate, in the province of Varese, followed by a factory in Sulmirago, also in the Varese area. Much more than an entrepreneurial attempt, so much so that, in a very short time, Missoni will become a reference point for Made in Italy fashion, a beacon of technical and aesthetic innovation.
