Margherita Missoni Loves Her Grandma’s Style, Wearing Headpieces
The fashion designer shares a page from her style notes.
Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos is true fashion royalty. As the granddaughter of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, who founded the Italian fashion house in 1953, and the daughter of Angela, who currently heads the brand, it’s no surprise that Margherita earned her own stripes. She has launched her own line of kid’s clothing—and has, over the years, acquired a dreamy personal wardrobe. Here, the fashionable heiress shares her favorite stores, style pet peeves, and style icons.
Define your style in three words:
Classic, distressed, passionate.
Tailored pants, a t-shirt, sweater, small hoop earrings, a bunch of rings, and a thin neck chain.
YSL vintage trench coat, red Margiela crew neck sweater, Valextra crossbody mini pouch, black American Apparel high-waisted spandex pants, and black Tod’s lace-ups.
Lace-ups, slippers, moccasins, flat sandals, and espadrilles.
Headpieces (but, in general, I dig every kind of jewelry).
Pencil skirts, high-waisted wide leg trousers, silk blouses, belts, and high heels.
Best recent discovery:
Society bed sheets.
Spazio Rossana Orlandi (design, Milan), Antonella Veronesi (antique jewelry, Milan), De Vera (New York), Nilufar (design, Milan), Manolo Blahnik (New York), Taschen (Milan), FD Gallery (New York)
