1980s Krizia Fox Print Sweater Dress

So this is what we think happened one day back in the early 1980s: Mariuccia Mandelli was walking by a construction site in New York when a group of construction workers started whistling and calling out 'hey there foxy lady'. Rather then take offense, Ms Mandelli, thought, hmmm, foxy lady... and thus was born our classic knit sweater dress from Krizia

We think this dress would look, well, pretty foxy, with a pair of brown high,tight boots.

John Huston famously said, there are no new stories to be told, it is how you tell them.  This is absolutely true for fashion as well.  Inspiration crosses continents and centuries.   It is always interesting to see a successful reworking of a vintage piece and we think this Stella McCartney sweater dress from Fall 2009 is a perfect example.
