yesterday's post, this is what high end American fashion looks like. In one of Diana Vreeland's final issues editing Vogue magazine, she said, "Print's the thing for evening."
At left: "The prettiest quilted silk coat, in a happy-go-flower print. Shaped, belted, and perfect over every little thing you wear for evening. Originala. About $395" (about $2,273 in today's dollar.) Mr. John hat, Graff watch, Golo boots worn over striped stockings.
At right: "The print is paisley, and it's got you covered. Black, red, pink silk with trumpet sleeves and a wide belt - Jacques Tiffeau's small evening dress. Abraham fabric. About $325" (that's $1,870 in today's dollar.) Wig by Halston, bracelets by Oscar de la Renta.
