MISSONI THE GREAT ITALIAN FASHION BOOK
A celebration of the unmistakable Missoni style, whose innovative approach mixes bold color, pattern, and material with an extraordinary sense of balance and elegance.
This deluxe edition is a limited, numbered edition with five pieces of Missoni fabric stitched into the binding, a Missoni fabric inset on the cover, reproductions of magazine covers and a vintage 1977 pattern on special paper in Bodonian binding with a leather spine in a transparent plastic carrying case with handles.
It is the first fully comprehensive book about Missoni, created with full access to the archives and with the support of the Missoni family. Lavishly designed, it features reproductions of Missoni patterns printed on special material and stitched into the binding between signatures along with other special features.
Divided into thematic sections, each is introduced by an essay including quotes by the Missonis themselves, highlighting the artistic decisions that contributed to the success and recognizability of their fashion house. With previously unpublished material from both the family and the company archives, this volume is a look into the creative and artistic world of Missoni.
