Double breasted 3 piece sport suit, mid to late 1930s

Wish I could find one suit like this at least monthly! Love the matching black tie.

a beautiful, lightweight, unlined jacket, made by Rubinacci/Attolini in the middle 1930’s. I love the belted back and pleated skirt with buttoning vent, an unusual detail I haven’t seen before.

Marie Doro! A lovely actress from the earlier, silent days of cinema. Sadly, most of her films are lost, but she sure took some lovely photos! ;D
