Vintage Satiny Ivory Silk Chinese Kimono Embroidered Robe of Many Colors!
This enchanting item is very striking and because of the colors, very wearable as outerwear! Also as loungewear.
How gorgeous this would be with a coordinated shell under it, worn open over a sexy pair of slacks and stiletto heels!
The detail photos really show this one off so make sure to view them! This robe has no label and is lined in an ivory gauzy silk fabric. It is in superb condition and has been dry cleaned. There are no odors and no loose seams.
The black silk floral borders are extremely soft and supple to the touch whereas the ivory body of the robe rustles and is somewhat stiffer to the touch.
The measurements are 39 1/2 long, 49" from fingertip to fingertip along top edge, 14" long sleeves to the armpit, 20 1/4" across the back from armpit to armpit. The sleeves are 10" wide and the wide border on the sleeves is a full 5 1/2". Please be aware that these vintage Chinese robes tend to run on the small side.
We saw the actress Tea Leoni wearing this robe on a runway photoshop some years ago! We tried finding the image through Google but couldn't. She wore it over black slacks. And...the last photo shows someone modeling a very similar robe. We found that one on a vinatge website being sold for $1,250.00!!
