Label Love: Mr. Dino

Mr. Dino was a clothing label popular in the 60's for wild Pucci-esque like prints. It also has a pretty funny background...
Mr. Dino, whose actual name was Max Cohen, started the business in the late fifties. As he was starting this new business, he and his family sat around the dinner table thinking of names. Everyone put names in a hat. His wife came up with Mr. Dino because she was a great fan of Dean Martin.

Love the colors and the fit on this one. It feels very tennis-y, no?

This beauty is another softer side print - it reminds me of cake! And check out that super low price tag (some spotting disclosed in the listing)...

This one seems the most like his inspiration, Pucci. Beautiful serene colors, too.
