Vintage Seekers Unveils Bolero and Sweater Worn by Wallis Simpson
Two rare vintage fashion treasures once owned by Wallis Simpson have been listed for sale on Vintage Seekers. Also known as the Duchess of Windsor, the American socialite became notorious as the cause of Edward VIII’s abdication in 1936.
There’s also a beaded pale blue and silver bolero encrusted with sequins and glass crystals, designed by Christian Dior in 1963. Actress Gillian Anderson, who played Wallis Simpson in the BBC adaptation of William Boyd’s Any Human Heart, recently wore the bolero to the 2011 BAFTA ceremony.
The unique bolero and sweater are both part of the carefully curated luxury fashion range on Vintage Seekers, an online platform for original 20th century design and collectibles.
