Ethnic 1970's 100% cotton tan and brown caftan by OPUS 1 by Diana Martin. Made in Mexico. Expat fashion designer settled in Guadalajara in the 1970's and created one of the hippest clothing lines and stores located in Mexico and sold to American tourists. Her clothes were right for the times and have stood the test of time. Attention to detail, ethnic inspiration, great fabrics, and comfort make her designs both wearable and collectible today. The body of this great caftan is a solid brown, while the long sleeves and bust are striped in many hues of the same shade. The sleeves are trimmed with fringe at the hems and shoulder seams. Ms. Martin's signature tassel, made up of wonderful triangles, dangles down the center front of the caftan. This caftan does not have a closure and can be easily put on over the head.
One size fits all.

Vibrant 1960s Emilio Pucci terry cloth multi-color caftan. It is so versatile, it can also be donned as a beach cover after a cold dip in the ocean on a summer day and worn to dinner in the evening. The long sleeves are cuffed, with three snap closures. The cover up has a V neckline and zippered front closure that falls about halfway down the garment, allowing for a 32" opening the rest of the way. The garment is finished with 2" facings.

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!
