Cortina Cowl-Neck Dress
The Conquest of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
Alexandra the Great annexes the top floor of the Cristallo Palace Hotel, prompting Hans-Rudi to cancel a week’s worth of ski lessons.
Counts Fico and Obomovski feign playing backgammon in the lobby. The grocer at the cooperativo has no more blood oranges for his regulars; you-know-who insists they make the best mimosas.
A sweater-dress of this magnitude disrupts the order of things. It exposes less than nothing—a hint of calf, ten long fingers—yet the effect is a revelation. And notice how the springy merino wool holds its shape.
Alexandra understands all this, of course, as well as the wearability factor. Dark glasses and boots for daytime reconnaissance; add a few baubles for dinner and cause a stir.
