  • Description

    For his Spring 1959 Collection Irish designer Raymond Kenna features a daring new look - ' The Turkey back Silhouette.' Skirts are slim or slightly more flaring in front-backs are pleated-gathered-pouched over devastating detachable little wire cages. Covered in shirred silks-decorated with satin bowknots - velvet ribbons - pleated laces and little roses, these cages are most feminine and captivating.

    Kenna tightly belts his coats to emphasize that 'the waist' is back. Black is predominant throughout his collection and Kenna makes great use of Irish tweeds and laces.
