Just in: Swans in Schon. A Fine and Exceptional Mila Schon Beaded Ensemble. Part Three.

Swans in Schon.  Part Three.

One of the most iconic images from Truman Capote's famed Black and White Ball is of the fabulous Marella Agnelli wearing a fabulous beaded Mila Schon caftan with her fabulously handsome and elegant husband Gianni Agnelli.  It was all too, too fabulous!

Mrs. Agnelli's Mila Schon caftan is now in the collection of the V & A in London and is included in the exhibition set to open April 5th: The Glamour of Italian Fashion.

1966 Mila Schon.  Collection V & A Museum.  Gift of Madame Agnelli

It is very rare to find these 1960s pieces by Mila Schon but I am thrilled and excited to have found a few!  One of which has similar embroidery to Marella Agnelli's caftan - only ours is a haute bohemian long tunic top with a high slit in the middle and a pair of softly draped harem pants (and the harem pants totally work as a part of this ensemble!)

1960s Mila Schon beaded tunic and pants available for purchase at RARE vintage. or phone 212.581.7273

love, baci and vintage Mila Schon, Juliana
