Ottavio Missoni, Founder Of The Iconic Italian Brand, Has Died

The Missoni family has made headlines this year, and sadly, it's been more for their family losses than their iconic space-dyed wool. First there was the tragedy with Vittorio Missoni, when his plane went missing, and now this morning, we learned that Ottavio Missoni, founder and patriarch of the family, has passed away.
He was 91, and for so many years, Missoni worked alongside his wife and children, creating one of the most renowned Italian brands in the world. The announcement marks the passing of a true fashion legend, and one who appeared to have lead a rich, full life. (WWD)
