The Missoni brand has made beautiful sweaters worn by everyday citizens, models, movie stars and the fashion elite for decades. Consider the following when shopping for Missoni sweaters.
Missoni is a family-run business that has been in existence for over fifty years. It has won many prestigious awards since its introduction to the United States in the early 1970s. Since the founder's granddaughter Margherita took over the business, the company has also introduced a fun, youthful element to their designs. Missoni is most known for its kaleidoscopic patterns of zig zags on knitwear.
Consider the ZigZag Cardigan, available at Bergdorf Goodman for $985.00. It is a classic Missoni outerwear piece. Notice how the multi-colored lines add shaping to the upper body, with horizontal lines above the belly button and vertical lines below. This cardigan is not only a fashion statement, but it is also a piece that flatters and accentuates the female form. The Open Zigzag Knit Cardigan is an eye-popping combination of white, brown, black and blue. The zigzag pattern that is Missoni’s signature design flatters every figure by adding length. The cardigan itself retails for $1,035.00; for $1,600.00 more you can have the matching dress along with it.
The Space-Dye Sweater also uses clever patterning to enhance the upper body. The undulating design stops at the base of the ribs, elongating those who have shorter waists. This piece is available for $810.00 at Bergdorf’s. Knits are not only for sweaters. Missoni has a wide range of unique and beautiful sweater dresses. The Belted Greek-Key Cardigan and Pocketed Dress is a combination of sweater and mini dress. For $1,080.00 this dress will stand out with its vibrant color and cinch your waist at the same time. You can find less expensive pieces on outlet websites, such as Polyvore.com.
