1955 | FRATTEGIANI | FLORENCE | PART 2

Today’s Fashion

Raffia and velvet wide-circle skirts are being sold to Texas women who love the ordinary patio skirts. The Italian imports are made of alternate rows of straw and velvet ribbon, hand-embroidered with flowers or geometric emblems.

Sling straw sandals by Frattegiani are bare on top and cork-heeled on bottom. They make nice compliments to the straw skirts.

In all the world, no one creates little flats with the enchanting flair of Frattegiani, internationally famous designer. Everything about them is captivating: warm Mediterranean colours, fine kid leathers, deep hued sailcloth, soft raffia (and wait ‘till you see the linings). So special are they … they travel from Italy to you on only the Queens, Elizabeth and Mary. Come see our Italian darlings.

And to round things up we add the Frattegiani sandals from the mighty MET collection: probably not from the same year (no cork heels), but close; the raffia flowers and stem being a recurring motif.
