Absolutely guaranteed authentic Valentino. I am the original purchaser. Super classic staple that will go with so many things, from the office with a jacket or sweater, directly to a night out, good for any season and definitely and combo given the classic, natural color. Made in Italy, of course. 100% viscose. Breezy top with knitted bottom. Halter tires around the neck. Labeled an Italian 40, which fits as about an American 2.
