As a color aficionado like me, I always love Missoni. And my personal encounter with the brand was actually at Milan three years ago when I visited their showroon during the Salone del Mobile period. The boutique was turned into a space for colorful installations. It’s like a universe of prints, patterns and colors in a nutshell.
And in September last year, the brand’s runway was placed under a colorful tapestry of the artist Rachel Hayes. One website said that the designer Angela Missoni actually found the artist on instagram! The relationship they founded after that seems to be strong enough that they continue working together until now. This year during the Milan Fair, Missoni presents the solo exhibition of Rachel Hayes ‘Blowing in the Wind’ so if you are in Milan, be sure to drop by!
