EMPORIO SIRENUSE Vali Myers Bella Dress
The Bella dress is a long, romantic dress, with a generous V neckline and 3/4 length sleeves ending with small ruffles. Fully lined, it is made in the softest, feather light cotton voile, printed with a design inspired by the legendary Vali Myers and the hippy movement that followed in her path.
Restless bohemian Vali Myers was an Australian-born dancer and artist who, in 1958, moved into an abandoned house in a wild canyon just outside of Positano. A friend of Cocteau and Genet, Donovan, Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger, she was a hippy before the term even existed, with flame-red hair and intricate Berber tattoos. Draped in necklaces, jewels and rings that seemed to possess a talismanic power, she was inspired by gypsy and nomadic culture in her flamboyant, colorful, layered clothes and in the dark kajal eye shadow she always wore.
