The greatest Cuban import

Luis Estevez - one fantastic designer. He was born in Cuba, and thank heavens he came here, because I don't know that I've ever seen a boring Estevez. Like many designers, he started out by studying architecture, and ended up designing beautiful garments like this.

Now, I'm as much of a fan of the 50s and 60s era coats as anyone, but this one is really misleading -- look at the hubba hubba dress beneath it! Wowza! I see it in midnight blue. What about you?

From approximately 1963, Prominent Designer pattern booklet.
