1980's Gianni Versace
Ok, so this is how I remember Italy's "GIANNI VERSACE" a little kid, sitting in the doctor's office and checking out Vogue.
He advertised in American and always in the first few pages.Iman, Kelly Emberg, Andy McDowell and the most beautiful model of the 1980's Kelly LeBrock(check her out mid 80's U.S Vogue in Japan, still one of the most beautiful editorials ever)
Anyway...back to Gianni Versace. This piece has seen a lot of travel and made its way to me, via Milan to Tokyo, Tokyo to Toronto, into my waiting arms.
This gorgeous piece made in Italy by Italians,very talented seamstresses and tailors. Being a piece from circa 1980's and made in Italy, indicate its authenticity and that the piece is not subject to licencing(i.e the selling of name label to an outside party to produce under the bought moniker or name) or, being counterfeit.This piece was an ordered import from Italy to Japan,which definitely adds value to the piece.ok.
She's a gorgeous African violet purple. It's whole body made of linen, very fine, turn the dress inside out and see.
Is detailed in a cotton silk blend detailed with the pleats built in to the fabric creating a sherring effect across the body and covers one shoulder, the other, a very fine linen, the combination at the neckline creates an A-symetrical "V" shape, silk covers the body and linen continues into a pencil skirt that is detailed with a slit.
Well ladies, this is the real thing, excellent vintage, why?
It's made in Italy and designed by the late, great, Gianni Versace at the height of his career and before he was cut down on the steps of his own home....
I guess this is the stuff legends are made of.R.I.P.
