1960s Exotic Metallic Caftan

Pauline Trigere


Fantastic 1960s metallic caftan in gold, blue, and copper attributed to Trigere. During the turn of the 20th century western designers looked east for exotic inspiration, included in the group was Pauline Trigere especially in love with the fabrics of the east. This caftan embodies the exotic details of many of Mrs. Trigere's gowns and coats of the 60's that we have collected over the years, with its golden trim that has iridescent flecks and metallic fabric in an interesting print with bright metallic gold, blue and copper threads. The copper threads bring this vintage piece current. Long sleeves, bust darts and a high left slit create the silhouette unlike other figureless caftans. Trim follows the neckline down around the hem. Fully lined with a polished cotton pumpkin colored fabric. Zipper at back. This is a favorite at MRS Couture!
