A sartorial and cocktail-savvy crowd gathered at The Mansion at MGM Grand recently to toast the West Coast launch of Disaronno’s collaboration with the famed Italian fashion house MISSONI.
The partnership is the fifth partnership of its kind by the liqueur company. In previous years, the Disaronno Icon Project has released versions with Moschino, Versace, Roberto Cavalli and ETRO.
The colorful zigzag pattern was inspired by the brand’s signature lightning-bolt stripes, as coveted as they are recognizable. That’s largely the work of
Angela Missoni, who this year marked her 20th anniversary as creative director of her family’s company.
A portion of the proceeds from every Disaronno wears Missoni bottle, available in 750 ml size ($28) and a set of three 50 ml bottles ($11), will be donated to Fashion 4 Development, a nonprofit sponsored by the United Nations.
Disaronno also created a cocktail in Angela Missoni’s honor, a zingy blend that’s a perfect match for the famous designs, and the festive season ahead. Saluti!
