LE MALIZIOSE - strange Italian art print tee

Post by bodhi » Tue Dec 20, 2011 6:54 pm

Kind of an odd piece we found recently. It's an oversized tee, almost like a night shirt, with a large size print on the front. Paper thin, tag reads "Jennifer Dale" and is sized Small even though the measurements are pretty large (23" pit to pit, 29" in length).

From what we could find in researching the name, "Le Maliziose" is Italian for "naughty" or "malicious" (in a mischievous sense), and from what brand information we can find it was an Italian ladies' clothing manufacturer in the 1980's. Not sure where it was made, although the "Jennifer Dale" name sounds American.

Has anyone come across any other items from this label (either Jennifer Dale or Le Maliziose)? Anyone know what style of art this would be indicative of (I keep thinking "pop art" but that's pretty vague and not really accurate to this)?

And finally, how would you price it?

This is the kind of item that needs to be modeled by a slender, leggy girl in the slouch style in order to sell. Otherwise, you might as well donate it.
