About



Very fine, high end silk was used to create this stunning and gorgeous dress & coat set from the late 1950s. The silk has an exotic, sari inspired feel to it and I love the gold metal lame thread used to create the beautiful little floral designs sprinkled over its surface and the more elaborate borders. During this time period India held a great fascination as it opened to the Western world. Pieces made specifically for the Western market began to be brought back by tourists and these were made of beautiful, traditional silks crafted into more Western cuts like this dress and coat. The pink is vibrant and rich, much better in person then how the camera has captured it here - the color is richer and more true. The little floral medallions are woven directly into the silk. The neckline and front inner pleat of the dress are done in a band of gold with a more dense pattern. The dress itself is pure bombshell with a shaped bodice and pretty capped sleeves. The waist nips in and the skirt flares out. The jacket is cut with a looser, more boxy shape - this contrast of shapes between the coat and dress are pure fifties. It too is made of that wonderful fine silk and the same golden detailings run down the front of the jacket and ring the cuffs and collar. Both are beautifully made and very light. Plus you have the added versatility of the two peices. Really it is a steal at this price. Excellent condition

Both pieces are fully lined in a tangerine toned silky rayon. The dress closes with back painted metal zipper and the jacket has no closures. Hand finished and beautifully made
