Roberta di Camerino 1970s Green Red Blue Trompe L'oeil Buckle Motif Velvet Belt



Stunning extremely rare and collectible 1970s Roberta di Camerino trompe l'oeil belt. The plush velvet waist belt features the iconic belt illusion print in Roberta di Camerino's signature colouring of bottle green, raspberry-red and navy blue. Beautifully elaborate gilt-metal buckle, belt end and belt loops. The design has four holes, is lined in black leather and gold foil stamped “MADE IN ITALY BY "ROBERTA“ DI CAMERINO LEATHER-LINED". As Giuliana Coen Camerino once said: "Velvet fascinated me, because of its vibrant colours. Night blue, deep red, bottle green. They matched perfectly. I spent hours and hours searching for the best way to make this brand new fabric work." The house of Roberta di Camerino was founded by Giuliana Coen Camerino (1920-2002) in 1945 in Venice, Italy. The company's name is a combination of the name Roberta, taken from Giuliana Camerino's favourite song "Smoke gets in your eyes" and Camerino, her husband's surname. Giuliana Camerino was one of the first designers who created the idea of an easily recognizable status handbag. The neo-baroque style bags were produced of "Soprarizzo" velvet – originally used for furnishings – in the most beautiful and unusual colour combinations and clasps and studs created by the craftsmen of brass ornaments for gondolas. The result were truly revolutionary and unique bags. Already in 1956 Giuliana received the prestigious Neiman Marcus "Oscar of Fashion" Award. Her creations were loved by celebrities and royals all over the world, such as Grace Kelly, Elsa Maxwell, Princess Paola of Liegi and Isabella Rossellini. Excellent vintage condition. Very slight wear to velvet. Only noticeable in certain light. The slightest wear to gold on hardware. Not noticeable. Only mentioned for accuracy. Total Length: 87 cm – 34.3" Width: 3,5 cm – 1.4" Holes from 66 to 76 cm – 26" to 29.9"
