About

Ottavio Missoni, the undisputed artist mesh, in addition to the iconic srtipes and the timeless zig zag, created, together with his wife Rosita, in the second half of the 60s, another innovative manufacturing that became a  real aestetics code of Missoni fashion house: the "space-dyed" motif. It is a particular treatment named " space-dyed " in which the skein of wool was  partially and repeatedly immersed in different shades of color in order to create, once woven, blended stripe effects, composed and recomposed, spasmodically filamentate and segmented.

“Colour is an integral part of my DNA. From Dalmatia and Dubrovnik I brought with me the blue, that smell overseas, and  the red-orange sunsets on the Adriatic; the mottled ocher and brown warm yellow speak of rocks and sand, lapped, reshuffled and eroded by the waves. Can not miss the black, that amalgamate. And then the purple, my favorite color, in all its nuances. If you looks carefully, there is always, even if it don’t appear at first sight . " Ottavio Missoni (From the book “Una vita sul filo di lana”).

As counterpoint, in this colorful word, born the " space-dyed " motif in black and white version that makes it even more vibrant the game and the contrast between lines and shapes. Broken outfits in black and white nuance leave us pleasantly hypnotized showing
