Weekend Eye Candy - Romeo Gigli, 1989

Normally on Sundays I do a post showing you some of the new things I added to the site during the week. It was a crazy week, though. I did list 17 vintage hats on the site, but most of them have already sold. Instead, you get a second installment of Weekend Eye Candy!

From 1989, this black crystal pleat cocoon wrap is by Romeo Gigli. Simply constructed from a double width of fabric with a single seam down the center back that is gathered and tied with ribbons, this wrap speaks volumes about Gigli's genious.
