| "A few feet away, and creating as much of a stir in its own way, was ZINGER (Stevens '86), a subtle but exciting blending of violets and tans with heavy ruffling, moderate lace, and a blocky form. It reminded me of an improved, more subtle BACCARAT (Gaulter '67), which was always one of my favorites."
