Missoni

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.
