About

London is a city full of memories for the Missoni family: Ottavio Missoni in 1948 participates in the first Olympics Games and met Rosita who remembers him as "An elegant and slender Ottavio in blue suit came up to me at the exit of Wembley Stadium." The fashion house creative director, Angela Missoni stayed in town for a few days to discover the most interesting art galleries, museums, restaurants and street market of the metropolis. A route between culture and trends to discover London's many sides.

Let's start from colors in perfect Missoni's mood: Duke Street 73 is a curious and fascinating place that you will love: the Tuk Tuk Flower Studio, where you are surrounded by elegant flower arrangements and paper flowers. A few subway stops away, perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, there is Spitalfields Market, in the Liverpool Station area, one of the largest street market in London dedicated to art and crafts. Between one turn and the other a healthy break, organic and natural, it is always recommended, so when you're in the Notting Hill area, don’t forget the Farmacy, a restaurant whose cuisine is inspired by dishes from all over the world, ideal for both vegans and vegetarians; or for those who suffer from allergies, the restaurant offers food free of dairy products, refined sugars, additives and chemicals. A place with a truly mesmerizing design. If you want to see something equally bizarre you should definitely visit the Newport Street Gallery and its restaurant: Pharmacy 2. The new restaurant designed by Damien Hirst in collaboration with Mark Hix, is all inspired by the pharmacy: shelves of boxes, little boxes, and glass windows depicting DNA filaments. If is a rainy day and you are passionate about art and photography you can not miss the Michael Hoppen Gallery and then, just in time for dinner, jump on the Piccadilly Line and catch up with friends at Covent Garden where you will find the prestigious Frenchie restaurant, with a  modern and essential design it is a perfect destination to taste dishes inspired by the travels of its founder Gregory Marchand, all accompanied with an excellent wine selection. If you are doing shopping in Oxford Street pay a visit to Locanda Locatelli, the most important Italian haute cuisine's example you may find in London. Finally, more suitable for a quick lunch but always in style, or for an afternoon tea is the Colbert Café, located in Chelsea, inspired by typical Parisian cafes. Last but not least, a stop by the Fashion and Textile Museum, near the Town Hall and the London Bridge, to see the exhibition MISSONI ART COLOUR, curated by Luca Missoni, shows not only a selection of looks, manufactured from 1953 to 2014, but also a number of art works related to the Missoni work applied to fashion. An exciting journey into Missoni's world between past and present.
