Giuliana Coen Camerino, the designer who in post-World War II Italy revved up fashion with her colorful Roberta di Camerino bags, died Monday in the civil hospital of Venice after being taken ill on the nearby island of Ischia. She was 90.
Born Giuliana Coen, she began creating handbags in Switzerland during World War II after having to flee Italy during the Mussolini era because she was Jewish. She married Guido Camerino and established her company in Venice, her hometown, upon her return from Switzerland.
