New collection features contemporary yet timeless designs

The essence of Missoni – seen in the premium quality of materials, distinctive colour combinations and modern reinterpretations of iconic textures – comes to life in the brand’s new eyewear collection for spring/summer 2021.

Designed, produced and distributed in partnership with Safilo, the collection is enriched by sophisticated designs and superior craftsmanship.

The collection’s contemporary yet timeless elegance echoes a ‘70s-inspired feeling, mirrored by the oversized squared or rounded shapes, proposed as modern reinterpretations of the frames from the Maison’s archives.

Missoni’s signature knitted graphic patterns, such as the distinctive ZIG-ZAG, are the distinguishing feature of the new collection, enhanced thanks to innovative manufacturing techniques – either with the authentic Missoni fabrics incorporated into the frames or stylized into graphic textures on the lenses, in the interpretation of the shapes or as a block of exclusive acetate on the temple tips.

The new collection includes the limited-edition MIS 0041/N/S acetate sunglasses, which are paired with a made-in-Italy Missoni silk scarf. Hanging on the leather holder, the elegant scarf can be worn tied through the eyelet and styled in multiple ways around your head, neck or shoulders, as a versatile accessory.

The MIS 0054 metal optical frame, meanwhile, features the iconic Missoni ZIG-ZAG pattern, imprinted on the temple tips, and is particularly versatile thanks to the MIS 0054CS clip-on with sun lenses with metal chain included.

The new collection also includes the MIS 0001/S cat-eye wraparound sunglasses, MIS 0002/S squared sunglasses, MIS 0004/S butterfly sunglasses and MIS 0005 optical frames. Each of these styles is enriched by authentic Missoni fabrics skillfully inserted within the frame.
