The co-founder of the Missoni house, Ottavio 'Tai' Missoni, has passed away at 92. He and his wife Rosita set up a small knitwear workshop in Italy in 1953, and from it, the brand was born just five years later. News of his passing comes just four months after his son Vittorio Missoni went missing. [Telegraph UK]
