1960s Nat Kaplan Couture Green, Blue, and Gold Kaftan Dress

Nat Kaplan


Bright and shimmering maxi length couture dress by Nat Kaplan. The dress has a loose shift silhouette with long, wide kimono - like sleeves, and a jewel neckline. The dress features an amazing sheer fabric with an oversized blue and green floral pattern highlighted by thick gold linework.

After Nat Kaplan’s untimely death in 1956, his wife, Sylvia, took over the reins of the company while simultaneously raising their children alone. Sylvia was precise and exacting, she understood the company’s clients and knew that women demanded style, comfort, and convenience. She personally made sure that she tried on each and every dress on the design line before it was cut for production. The dress features the fun, bright colors, sheer fabrics, and expert fits Sylvia Kaplan liked to work with!
