Italian Shoes For Jacqueline Kennedy

Queste preziose scarpette costano 125.000 lire. Sono state fatte da un artigiano milanese per la moglie del Presidente degli Stati Uniti. La tomaia di raso bianco é tutta ricoperta di << strass >> incastonati in plastica. Viene così evitato il pericolo di rompere le calze e di perdere qualcuna delle 3.800 pietre.

These precious shoes costs 125,000 lire. They were made by a Milanese shoemaker especially for the wife of the President of the United States. The white satin upper is covered with rhinestones embedded in plastic, in order to avoided the danger of breaking the socks and losing some of the 3,800 stones.
