La Principessa and Jackie Kennedy

So I am feeling very Jackie in Capri these days at RARE vintage.  First it was the great big, anti-paparazzo sunnies and now Jackie in Capri with her BFF, La Principessa Irene Galitzine.

Princess Irene Galitzine was the founder of an uber glamorous fashion house in Rome in the 1960s.  She was well known for her famous evening pant, cut slim and embroidered.  Diana Vreeland coined the term, "palazzo pajamas" after the setting for her fashion shows, the Palazzo Pitti, in Florence.

And Claudia Cardinale wore a pair of Galitzine palazzo pajamas in the 1963 film, 'The Pink Panther'.
