Margherita Maccapani Missoni
Perhaps the most surprising thing about Margherita Maccapani Missoni—the daughter of Angela Missoni, designer of the fabled knitwear brand, and granddaughter of its founders, Rosita and Ottavio—is that despite her worldly appearance, she’s a small-town girl at heart. “It’s the village life that keeps me balanced, and that kept me sane when I was a young girl partying and having fun,” says the 33-year-old, who grew up in Sumirago, in the countryside near Milan, and recently moved back there with her husband, the race-car driver Eugenio Amos, to raise their two children. “I want my kids to have that too.” Maccapani Missoni, who has lived in Rome, Barcelona, and New York, has tried her hand at acting, but is now returning to the proverbial nest, professionally speaking: Last year she started a children’s line, Margherita, which, with its bright mix-and-match offerings, proudly embodies the Missoni DNA. “I was never told how to dress when I was a kid, and that’s what I really want to communicate: Let kids be free to dress themselves. They might come out with a great idea of their own.”
