Vintage Anna Giovannozzi Italy Grey White Floral Crochet Raffia Maxi Skirt
This raffia maxi skirt by Italian designer Anna Giovannozzi captures the multifaceted 1970s aesthetic. Women have certainly worn floor-length skirts for centuries, often for formal occasions, but the maxi skirt was one of the iconic 1970s fashions, worn for day or night. During the 1960s hemlines reached new heights with the ultra-revealing mini skirt. The long maxi skirt was a stark contrast.
This maxi skirt also reflects the decade’s arts and crafts revival. In reaction to the turbulent events of the era, many desired to return to earlier times and escape to different cultures. These desires appeared in fashion in the form of an emphasis techniques done by hand, like knitting, macramé, and - as seen here - crocheting. The use of raffia also reflects the noted escapism. The natural fiber creates the interwoven floral design that adorns the entire skirt. This maxi skirt is a perfect addition to the closet of any vintage fashion lover.
