Beautiful gold and cream cocktail ensemble consisting of a dress and matching swing coat. The dress is knee length, with short sleeves, a bateau boat neckline, and a fitted sheath silhouette. The neckline features a curved Chinese design that complements the fabric of the ensemble. The coat is knee length as well, with a hem that lines up with the cocktail dress. The coat has long sleeves, a straight front with hidden closure near the clavicle, and an amazing accent collar that drapes around the wearers shoulders and rises above the neck for an elegant effect. The coat is structured but comfortable, with pleats on the back for ease of move and added grace. The lining of the coat is gold, and features stitched designs of Chinese symbols. Breast pocket is accented with a zig-zag folded ribbon trim. Simply divine and straight from the 60s! The dress was made for the Pee-X Clothiers Boutique inside Hong Kong's Ambassador Hotel in Kowloon.
The hotel opened in the 1960s and was famous for the massive 17 story tiled mosaic mural on its side, depicting Confucius visiting different Chinese provinces.
This 1970s mod (with a nod to art nouveau revival) dress by Lanvin is absolutely gorgeous! The dress features long, full cuffed sleeves, an exaggerated pointed wing collar, and includes a wide sash belt. The shirtwaist dress buttons from hem to collar. The amazing floral print begins as a woven geometric design that blooms upwards into flowers. The print's vibrant azure blue, apple green, and bold Hollywood pink lie vividly against a white background. Fantastic!
