Would you buy a dress from Gennaro Muscariello?  Just like Ralph Lipschitz (aka Ralph Lauren), Muscariello gave himself a more memorable name: Rocco Barocco.  This is our first RB piece at Decades and it's from the early 1980s (Barocco began designing in 1962; starting his eponymous label in 1974).  This dress reminds me a bit of a 1940s Eva Peron arriving in Buenos Aires and ready to conquer Argentina.  It also reminds me of Marc Jacobs groovy Fall 2013 show with the bold 1970s prints and big Ara Gallant  hair!  It's no secret that I am mad for prints and love fashion through the decades so have a fashion time warp in this 40s inspired-silhouette with a fab 70s print from the early 1980s to be worn with Charlotte Olympia Dolly shoes, of course!

Rocco Barocco navy print silk crepe summer dress, c. early 1980's. Modern size 4. SOLD
