Earlier this month, I recommended the labels Paganne, Leonard and Goldworm to those who appreciate Pucci-esque prints. Another designer of great prints in the ’60s was Mr. Dino. According to the Vintage Fashion Guild, the business was owned by Max Cohen, who designed all the prints himself. Cohen’s wife, a fan of Dean Martin, came up with the name “Mr. Dino.”
There are quite a few Mr. Dino items available online, some of them at very reasonable prices.
$185 at Dorothea’s Closet Vintage
I would have loved to have owned this one.
The eBay seller of this long skirt says it was handmade from genuine Mr. Dino fabric.
If you get a Mr. Dino, make sure it’s signed! And if you bid on eBay, please snipe!
