Catalogue Note

Armani was a designer that Barbara Sinatra had an appreciation for.  In her autobiography, Lady Blue Eyes: My Life with Frank (2011), she wrote: "One memorable summer Kirk Kerkorian leased Robert Maxwell's fifty-five-meter superyacht Lady Ghislaine and sailed a group of us including Michael Caine, Roger Moore, and their wives to St.-Tropez for lunch and some retail therapy. We girls not only had the greatest fun shopping but then had the chance to dress up every night in clothes by our favourite designers, like Pucci and Armani, as well as our finest jewellery, including a few knuckle bender and the Holy Shit Necklace."
