Signed + Original Drawing, Missonologia, The World of Missoni
[Signed, Original Drawing] Vercelloni, Isa Tutino (ed.) Missonologia, The World of Missoni. Softcover Edition. 1994. Book is in very good condition. There is an original full-page drawing of a bouquet of seven flowers (each a different color) on the flyleaf. On that same page, it is inscribed, “Per Bette, 7 fiori 7 per buona fortuna, Missoni, 2002.” [Translation: 7 flowers 7 for good fortune].
Rosita Missoni says, “Dressing should be a game . . . the pleasure of playing with colors, with ourselves and with others.” This colorful, splashy book expresses the whimsical nature of such gamesmanship. It is a compendium of all things Missoni, with contributions by many, including Rosita and Ottavio Missoni and Anna Piaggi.
“Our work is our hobby. It’s our way of expressing the emotions we receive from the world, from travel, from reading, from people, from art, from music.”
