which is Margherita’s first foray into children’s home furnishings, is

comfortable, colorful, and it evokes the same sense of freedom I feel
when dressing myself and my children – mixing, matching and creating
something that is unique to your own sense of style.”

pattern brings a wonderful sense of whimsy to her collection designed in
collaboration with Pottery Barn Kids,”

ABOUT MARGHERITA MACCAPANI MISSONI AMOS:

Born in Northern Italy, Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos, is the eldest
daughter of Angela Missoni, Creative Director of the renowned Missoni
brand, and the granddaughter of the house’s founders. Having grown up in
the idyllic countryside of Sumirago, amidst a family of fashion
designers, Amos developed a keen eye and a unique sense of personal
style from a very young age. She also dreamed of becoming a designer
like the women in her family. After University, Amos studied theater in
New York, then moved to Paris and Rome to pursue a career in acting.
During this time, Amos also functioned as Missoni Brand Ambassador. Amos
eventually settled back in Sumirago and began consulting on important
projects, and eventually joined the Missoni creative team as the
Designer of Accessories, Swim, and Missoni Girls. Amos then met her
husband, Eugenio, a race car driver, and shortly thereafter started a
family of her own. Following the birth of her two sons, the fashion
darling brought her innate sense of style, entrepreneurial spirit and
personal experience as a mum to her distinguished kidswear collection,
Margherita Kids, which launched in March 2015. Amos is frequently
featured in pages of women’s fashion magazines around the world for her
own personal style & fashion. She regularly appears on best-dressed
lists, which has led to additional collaborations for both herself and
the Margherita Kids brand.
