Sketches by Missoni

Rosita & Ottavio Missoni designs from my 1993 Desk Diary,
Aren't they divine? and just as lovely in 2011.

The one above is called Floral bouguet: a strapless sequined silk gown is drawn in a graceful multi-color print of large florals. So glorious, just love this sketch!

This is  Black and White Vibrations: Missoni's signature space-dye technique is perfect for a fluid stretch silk jersey long dress with criss-cross back straps. 
So beautiful and timeless, don't you think?

OK here's my favorite Missoni. 
Gypsy Dance: layers of color and movement are achieved by folds of net tunics over a patchwork-printed dress and long ruffly skirt. Yep! that's me dancing in Italy-(I wish) 
Isn't this just too beyond the beyond. 
OK I'll take each one of them-
now you pick your favorite

  1. Black and white is quite unusual for the Missoni but it is the one I like most in this post. I started buying Missoni when the line was still designed by Emanuelle Khan...can you imagine?
