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.
Dramatic and macabre skull necklace by Knight & Hammer. We adore this bold opera length necklace, with black enamel chain accented by four brilliant, polished gold skulls. Wear to the opera (and scandalize!) or over that perfect white tee with jeans (and scandalize!). A truly flexible necklace!
We're really feeling an Alexander McQueen / Damian Hirst "For the Love of God" rhinestone skull vibe from this piece.

Simply astounding evening dress ensemble by Pauline Trigere. The ensemble consists of a dramatic skirt and matching cardigan. The skirt is maxi length with an A - line silhouette and narrow waistband. The cardigan is hip length, with long sleeves and an open front. The ensemble is fabulous, with sheer black base and scalloped devore burnout velvet that shimmers beautifully. Wear with a black silk romper (or our listed silver lame Pauline Trigere romper!) topped with the cardigan tucked wrap - like into the skirt for some 70s studio 54 fabulousness!
