Time for a little history lesson. Grace Patricia Brendon was born in 1929 as the daughter to a successful business man. In 1949, she gave her Broadway debut and in ’51 she had her first movie air in the cinemas. In 1955, she met His Serene Highness Rainier III, Sovereign Prince of Monaco and married him in a pomptuous ceremony on April 19th, 1956. Grace was better known as Princess Gracia Patricia of Monaco. Ringing a bell? Thought so. Despite her early and tragic death over 20 years ago, Grace Kelly’s influence of the fashion world is undeniable. Not only thanks to the iconic Hermes Kelly bag, her name is still very apparent. Today’s highlight, the emerald & turquoise Roberta di Camerino Bagonghi Bag, is a timeless precious piece that has always been a fashion symbol for women of the high society, just like Princess Grace of Monaco. Created in 1949, the form, function and elegance have not lost its touch over the years. The handbag is made in a special type of velvet with a unique sheen and feel. The velvet is so rare that they manufacture only about 30 feet per month. For this season, Roberta di Camerino revisited this model by using a new mix of colors with the classic Meridiana design in the center. You can own a piece of history for $963.00 via Forzieri of Florence, It. Also available in brown & salmon.
