Style Inspiration: Margherita Missoni

Like Mother, Like Daughter: Margherita and her mother Angela; Angela and her mother Rosita in 1968

Today's fashion inspiration is Margherita Missoni, who wears the bohemian-luxe look like no other.  As heiress to the Missoni fashion house, the 28 year-old is the epitome of the effortless chic that her family's brand embodies.  She is the eldest grandchild of founders Rosita and Ottavio Missoni, and her mother Angela is the current Creative Director.

From a May 2011 article in Harper's Bazaar:
Convention has never been at the heart of the Missoni ethos. Rosita and her husband, Tai, spun out psychedelic zigzag knitwear in the 1960s that shocked the updos right off the perbene Milanese.
Good news for those who cannot normally afford Missoni (ahem, yours truly) -- come September, their collaboration with Target will hit stores, with everything from clothes to dinnerware to bedsheets.  In the meantime, check out this day in the life video that offers insight into Margherita's creative contribution to the company.
