1966. Big, bold prints like this have enjoyed several revivals but there’s nothing quite like the original, especially when modelled in such a romantic tropical setting by uber-supermodel, Veruschka. From a shoot published in the 1 November issue of Vogue (US):
Ebbing hem: Great wide bands swept back up the leg of a sirening dinner dress – the gigantic tropic flowers come on white and clear over lime-green piqué. By Nalii, in cotton. About $25. At Best & Co.; Wanamaker’s Phila.; Hudson’s; Carson Pirie Scott.
