This outstanding 1970s Roberta di Camerino coat is made from soft ruby velvet with a beautiful Aztec print in burnt orange, brown, caramel and vibrant blue. It features a four point collar, darts at the bust, two side seam pockets and flares downwards the waist. The coat closes with four beautifully designed matching velvet covered buttons that blend into the striped border and is fully lined in branded brown acetate. It is labeled "Roberta di Camerino Made in Italy" and finishes a palm below the knee. A highly collectible and rare piece of fashion history! 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. Further on the brand diversified its product range starting a clothing line characterized by high quality, simplicity and lightness. Trompe l'oeil prints of belts and buttons became Roberta di Camerino's signature designs. Her creations were loved by celebrities and royals all over the world, such as Grace Kelly, Princess Paola of Liegi, Elsa Maxwell and Isabella Rossellini. Excellent vintage condition. Minimal signs of wear.
