Lucia Mirisola in Vintage Missoni

Today was the most amazing day. My students in the Advanced Style seminar for IED Roma had the honor of meeting and interviewing legendary costume and set designer Lucia Mirisola, at the gorgeous Rome Cavalieri Hotel. Lucia began her career as the assistant set and costumer designer for Fellini’s, La Dolce Vita and later oversaw the set designs for most Luigi Magni’s classic films. It was an honor to speak with this accomplished 83 year old and hear her philosophy on style and design. Lucia told the class that when making a film you can’t separate one thing from another. Everyone must work together to paint a beautiful picture. Here are some photos of Lucia dressed in the most amazing vintage Missoni. I can’t thank the Rome Cavalieri Hotel enough for hosting us in their beautiful suite!

IED Roma will be putting together a video of our workshop and interviews so I can share more of Lucia’s story with you soon.

  • How very old school Missoni.

  • Hallo Ari, ich bin ganz glücklich Deinen Blog gefunden zu haben. Die Bilder sind so sehr schön, dass ich mich jeden Tag melden muss. Und je weiter ich bei Dir schaue, desto glücklicher bin ich, so schöne interessante und modische ältere Menschen zu sehen. Beispielhaft für mich auch, die ich auch schon älter bin. Danke!!!
    Viele Grüsse von Cosmee

    My husband and I have been to Italy three times. I love how stylish the Italians are; they dress up for EVERYTHING and they ALL seem to have a strong aesthetic sense. Bellisima!

  • I love Italy and every time I go there, I fantasize about finding real vintage finds at the markets … such as vintage Missoni …
