Missoni in Madrid


Missoni, the Italian fashion label recognized for its abstract-patterned knitwear in a kaleidoscope of colors, is hosting a retrospective in Madrid, “Missoni Studio: The Art of Fabric in Motion,” from February 5 to April 5. It showcases the creative and artistic history of the brand since its inception in 1953. Luca Missoni, son of founding couple Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, has gathered decades’ worth of clothing, sketches, documentaries, video art, furnishings, and contemporary dance films, all of which were either inspired or created by the Missoni label. Throughout the exhibition, Luca Missoni, who was also responsible for creating the brand’s menswear through the spring/summer 2008 collection, will take part in a series of discussions and debates on themes related to fashion, design, and art.

The discussions, held in three exposition spaces, will focus on “The Style and Culture of Fabric: A Trip through Tradition and Research” at the Italian Cultural Institute; “Stripes Talk: From the Origins of Ball of Yarn to Applied Arts,” at the Costume Museum; and “Color Experiments: From Abstract to Concrete Design” at the European Institute of Design.
