Grazie Ottavio

The fashion label Missoni was founded by Ottavio "Tai" Missoni and his wife in 1953, exactly sixty years ago. According to me, Missoni has always been the king of patterns and a real italian pride. He was the only one that have always mixed different colours, textures and fabrics. We must not forget that ottavio was not just a fashion designer, but also a soldier, a father (he never recovered since when his son disappeared in the ocean), and even an Olympic athlete. Ottavio died today, 9th May 2013, he was ninety-two. If Superheroes existed, probably he would have been one of them.
