I am in 1940′s HEAVEN right now! My kimono-style silk 40′s robe arrived this week and I could not be happier with it. It is so gloriously dramatic and luxurious I just want to lounge around all day in it. It’s hard to see from the photos but it is this beautiful creamy pale green colour with the delicate embroidered floral pattern picked out in glowing metallic peacock shades.
The lining is a dusty pink crepe de chine and the label is discretely placed in the left shoulder saying “Lily Piermont Gowns, 11 West 56th Street, New York”. This company no longer exists but they were placed in a very prestigious area just between Broadway and Central Park. The fact that the label is in the shoulder and not the back shows that it is a very high quality garment as they would not embarrass the lady by placing a label where it might showed when she removed the garment (ha!).
I feel a full blown obsession coming on……this sweetheart is top of my wish list.
