The black and bottle green split combination (above) is perfect for neo-preppies looking for heritage with a new twist. Designer Gai Gherardi says that watching the video with the elegant O’Day performing at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957 prompted the frame concept. For a vintage treat, the performance can be viewed at:
