Two Frothy Fifties Skirts

We love to give you what other vintage stores can not! It is always exciting for us to have hard to find and exclusive pieces from a designer like Fernanda Gattinoni. She did Audrey Hepburn's costumes for the movie 'War and Peace' in 1956 and from her Rome atelier she dressed Eva Peron, Ingrid Bergman, Anna Magnani and Jackie Kennedy.

These two very pretty skirts are Gattinoni Sport. Well, we are not sure how sporty they look, but they do look like fun, flirty skirts that would be perfect with ballet flats, boots or strappy sandals. The first skirt in velvet has hand painted scenes of medieval Italian military and the second skirt has watercolor flowers with crystal beading over it. And if this silhouette, full and mid calf, looks vaguely familiar it is because Miuccia Prada did a similar collection for her resort collection. SOLD (skirt above)
