OLYMPIC FASHION MEDALISTS
Italian sport furs and tight ski pants made sideline headlines at Cortina
The best-dressed spectators and participants at the Winter Olympics were either Italian or inspired by Italian fashions. They dressed with a flair unusual even for winter sports fans—among the most discriminating people in all of sport. They wore white ski pants made of trimly tailored elastique and combined them with sleek cable-knit V-neck sweaters. They kept warm with beautifully made duffel coats, and used such long-forgotten sports furs as lynx, wolf, seal and sheepskin with a freshness that foretells a major revival of fur for sport in both Europe and America.
