Born from husband and wife duo Ottavio and Rosita in 1953, was the beginning of the fashion empire of Missoni, which quickly grew to prominence in the early 1960’s.  While the Italian fashion house continues to create avant garde pieces and contemporary looks, the namesake label is most easily recognised by its signature multi-coloured stripes.

Blended into much of the label’s basic silhouettes and coveted homewares, comes it next hallmark essential – the Stripe-Jacquard Polo Shirt. An elevation of the standard polo style, Missoni have infused its aesthetics for a year-long essential with a colourful twist.

Created in a lightweight cotton piqué, the polo features a classic collar, side hem splits and slightly longer sleeve length for bold style choice with reservation. For a summer look, pair with tailored shorts and boat shoes and opt for cropped wool chinos and white sneaker in the cooler months. Does it get much easier than that?
