PHEEL BRINGS THE RUNWAY TO YOUR WORKOUT!!
The business was founded in 1953, when Ottavio and Rosita Missoni set up a small knitwear workshop in Gallarate not far from Rosita's home village. They presented their first collection under the Missoni label in Milan in 1958. The business prospered, with the support of fashion editor Anna Piaggi then at Arianna magazine. Rosita met the French stylist Emmanuelle Khanh in New York in 1965, which led to a collaboration and a new collection the following year. Missoni designs were championed in the USA by Diana Vreeland, editor of American Vogue and a Missoni boutique was opened in Bloomingdales.
