This skirt and stola belonged to the late Mathilde Willink, who was found dead in her appartment in the 70-ties. Mathilde was a model and the second wife of the Dutch painter Carel Willink (1900-1983). The Dutch couturier Fon Leng made " different" skirts for Mathilde ... like this one. Mathilde can be seen as a regular model in Carel Willink's paintings.
