This family business has long been at the forefront of Italian design, and counts stars like Kate Hudson as fans of its inventive knits and striking patterns. Ottavio Missoni, himself a champion athlete, produced tracksuits that were adopted by the Italian team for the 1948 Olympics. Ten years later, a bold striped shirt dress was the first garment to boast a Missoni label; today the brand offers confident fashion for both men and women.
