A Colorful Yarn: Angela Missoni On The Iconic Brand

hbz-angela-missoni-00-index-1511988244
Her earlobes weighed down by enough charms to fill two bracelets, her hair in a topknot, Angela Missoni is claustrophobic in cities, alive with enthusiasm, lit by clarity. For 20 years the creative director of Missoni, she’s turned the family-owned company into a global luxury brand without forfeiting its intimate authenticity. “I’m not looking for perfection,” she says, “but harmony.” I’ve been in thrall to her family from the first time I saw a Missoni pullover in a magazine in 1967.
