Dress in wool with Jeanne Grignani

Jeanne Grignani, Vesti bene, vesti lana

Jeanne Grignani – wife of designer/architect Franco Grignani – was a poster designer and illustrator originally from Ukraine (where she was born in 1915); in the 1950s, she worked for important Italian companies such as Necchi, Borsalino, Singer and Pirelli with beautiful illustrations we showcased in a previous article.

This time, we focus instead on a selection of postcards and posters she designed for the 1950s’ “Vesti bene, vesti lana” (“dress well, dress in wool”) campaign – highlighting the warmth and high quality of Italian style.
