The Life of Lamé
Would Missoni have shot to its stratospheric heights of fame so quickly were it not for those lamé blouses strutting down the runway under the bright lights of the Palazzo Pitti in the Spring of 1967?

Missoni Moments Making Magic

The Dreamer

Missoni is participating in the “Workwear” exhibition at the Triennale museum of Milan with a highly original uniform – a dreamer’s outfit complete with quilted clouds and zigzags

The Workwear show opens today June 25th and runs through Aug. 31th. The show, which began as a socio-anthropological reflection, is curated by Alessandro Guerriero for the Triennale museum of Milan and features work clothes. It used to be that the clothes made the businessman, the factory worker or the lawyer, defining his profession. If before it was the image that the world gave to us – you couldn’t work in a bank without wearing a jacket and tie, for example – today it is the image of what we want to be in the world. The social function vanishes and clothing takes on meaning of individual expression.

The exhibition will feature 40 clothing pieces created by designers from all over the world. These pieces will use work clothes in all of their various interpretations to show how society has changed and how the emotional and the imaginative have returned to the forefront. Missoni will therefore present its “The Dreamer” outfit, which will hang in the centre of the first room and will be visible from all angles.
