Fashion icon Margherita Maccapani Missoni on spring style essentials


The granddaughter of Missoni founders Ottavio and Rosita and daughter of its current creative director Angela, Margherita Maccapani Missoni is leaning into her chic roots. The 36-year-old style icon — who studied acting at Columbia University in NYC before modeling for Vogue, Vanity Fair and W and serving as the face of Missoni fragrances — recently took over as creative director of M Missoni, a spinoff of her family’s famed fashion house. Her first two shows were applauded for their embrace of sustainable heritage (some of the knitwear was made from recycled Missoni yarn) finger-on-the-pulse instincts (tie-dye sweats, anyone?) and playful, experiential approach (models were ferried on trams and a double-decker bus that stopped at Pink’s Hot Dogs in LA). Fittingly, Margherita — who has two sons with her husband, racecar driver Eugenio Amos — was honored with the Innovator Award at Maison De Mode’s Sustainable Style Awards last month in LA.

Here, she shares with Alexa the pieces that keep her in fashion’s fast lane.

“Back in 1985, Missoni Sport was born. I had to bring it back on what became my family’s favorite sweatshirt! Not just for girls, nor just for sports!”

“If you want truly radiant and beautiful skin, this is a product I swear by. The brand’s ingredients are naturally sourced and never tested on animals, which, to me, is of the highest of import.”

“The boots are as comfortable as they are chic. I love the pairing of the suede and the leather. They are the kind of boots you throw on with ease and feel like your look just got immediately cooler.”

“I love the balance of floral notes, like jasmine and tuberose, and the woody notes of musk.”
