If you have seen the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians, you know that the story is a layered one – at its crux one of family, love, and culture. Given the focus of our blog, it is no surprise that – along with the beautifully told story – the gorgeous fashion drew us in. One particular dress that caught our eye was the disco-inspired Missoni gown (see image).
What a wonderful decision to feature the Missoni brand in the film, a brand founded on family and love. The brand began through Rosita and Ottavio Missoni’s love story . In Rosita’s words, “For me it was love at first sight”. Rosita (16) met Ottavio “Tai” Missoni (27), a competitor in the 400 meter hurdles, while at the 1948 London Olympic Games. Since the brand’s start in 1953, it has evolved into “A signature style and palette, patterns and prints that have become synonymous with a keen and sure sense of taste”. Enjoy our selection of Missoni pieces featured below and if you haven’t seen Crazy Rich Asians put that on your to do list 🙂
