The brand has appointed Filippo Grazioli as a Creative Director of the Men and Women’s Collections and brand image manager for the Lifestyle, while Alberto Caliri will develop MISSONI Home Collection and Missoni Sport, in collaboration with Davide Tognetti.
I am honoured to join the world of Missoni: a brand that has played a role in the history of Italian style and design, maintaining a remarkable integrity over almost seven decades. I am grateful for the opportunity I have been given, and the possibility to shape my experience further in a new vision that maintains the joyfulness, freshness, sense of colour and positivity that are the core qualities of Missoni.
– Filippo Grazioli.
