Fendissime Repubblica Italiana blouse, size XS/S
This black ribbed vintage blouse is by Fendissime.
There are long raglan sleeves.
It has a full front 17" long zipper with a one snap closure on the band collar.
It's 70% acrylic and 30% wool.
The surface has some pilling, but we don't think it detracts from its appearance.
The front of the right sleeve had a hole from a store tag which then was repaired.
It's hard to see because of the color and the high-low ribbing.
The tag says size 42, but it fits like an XS/S.
Fendissime was the young modern line of the Fendi brand, created by Karl Lagerfeld in 1962 (with input from Fendi's 5 daughters).
The line is now discontinued.
It's from a stylist's personal collection.
When she bought it new and removed the tags, she saw the hole.
She sold it because she now wears a size large.
neckline to end of sleeve 27 1/2"
shoulder to hem 18 1/4"
bottom hem side to side 16 1/4"
