Supreme has worked with Italian luxury house Missoni on a new capsule collection for Fall 2021, featuring a jacket, sweater, polo, hooded sweatshirt and crusher. Best known for its distinctive and vibrant knitwear, Missoni is a global brand, spanning evening wear, swimwear, fragrances and furniture. The collection will be available from November 18th.
Missoni began in a small knitwear studio opened by newly married couple Ottavio Missoni and Rosita Jelmini. Both Ottavio and Rosita came from garment backgrounds prior to establishing their company north of Milan. Ottavio began creating tracksuits for athletes competing in the 1948 Olympics in London, where he first met Rosita. Rosita’s family specialized in shawls and embroidery. Their knowledge of knitwear construction and machinery helped the young couple develop the innovative approach to lightweight knits that would become Missoni’s signature.
