Missoni is an Italian fashion house based in Varese, and known for its colourful knitwear designs. The company was founded by Ottavio (« Tai ») and Rosita Missoni in 1953.
Aside from the main Missoni line, the company has diversified and offers a variety of luxury goods. Missoni Sport was initially licensed out but production and marketing was brought in-house in January 2002 and has since been discontinued. M Missoni is a less expensive line introduced in 1998, manufactured and distributed by Marzotto (now Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A). It has achieved remarkable success in being able to reach a larger number of consumers and is now being sold at premier department and specialty stores across the world.
