Emilio Schuberth and the Wicked Décolleté

Emilio Schuberth was an Italian designer known for his wicked décolletés.  His clients included women with famously wicked décolletés: Gina Lollobrigida, Sophia Loren,  Brigitte Bardot and Ava Garnder.  

His clothes were molded to the body and ultra feminine.   Schuberth too was quite the dandy driving a Cadillac with a lace interior and full of fresh flowers.  He could be just as extravagant in his fashion designs: the tulle!  the lace!  the embroidery!  But his work could also be tailored and simple and architectural.

But tailored and simple the Italian way which was all about the Bella Figura and La Dolce Vita.  And the wicked décolleté.

I am very excited to be able to offer this extremely rare and beautiful 1950s Emilio Schuberth black jersey tailored to the body, with a weighted hem and black silk ribbon trim dress.
