The latest Missoni show, Women’s Winter 2017, saw the appearance of a very powerful symbol of resistance, unity and empowerment of women: the pink pussy hat, adopted by feminists all over the world. Those same hats are now for sale on our website: proceeds will go to the Italian branch of The Circle, the organization founded by beloved pop icon and longtime activist Annie Lennox.
The Circle was brought to Italy in 2010, two years after its foundation in the UK, by Antonella Antonelli and Livia Firth. The Circle Italia is a group of women coming from different countries and fields of expertise (culture, art, show business, fashion, publishing, entrepreneurship, law) who contribute their ideas, skills and enthusiasm in order to fight poverty and injustice through fundraising and communication and by spreading awareness. Women have always been the prime drivers of change: The Circle believes in human rights and in the promotion of access to resources such as land, education and credit, which are the basis for the development of countries and communities all over the world.
Missoni is happy to contribute to The Circle Italia’s work to make women all over the world more empowered and free through the sale of the Missoni pink pussy hats, which are now available on our online boutique.
