This was Franca Sozzana's first Italian Vogue in 1988. Darkly romantic, beautiful, unexpected. Dolce & Gabbana's Sicilian Merry Widow, the classic but slightly off white shirts and black pants ... so gorgeous and simply not possible to stick in a box marked Back Then.
It was a very good year.
Happy Anniversary, Franca. Brava.
