Column A

This early 70s Givenchy dress, organza with raglan sleeves, is just the sort of thing I’d like to have copied in various fabrics. I find it so versatile and chic. I might choose a different neckline, a boat neck, perhaps, and a three quarter length sleeve instead of the full length. It belonged to Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, who likely wore it with heaps of Cartier diamonds to a casual dinner for 40. I’d throw on Rebeca de Ravenel’s bonbons and a pair of chartreuse satin mulesĀ  and head out for wine and frites.
