Elizabeth Arden Matallic Kaftan
Elizabeth Arden believed in the power of beauty. She created it all around her, with revolutionary modern makeup pigments, her iconic Red Door Salon, and through collaborations with contemporary fashion designers. This 1950's vintage metallic showstopper from her 5th Avenue boutique is no exception. Though the only label in our dress is Arden's, we believe it to likely be a Malcolm Starr or Oscar de la Renta design. Brilliantly hued woven jacquard fabric, with Asian inspired gold lame overlay, this kaftan style dress also features a rhinestone embellished large frog closure at the short mandarin collar, and pockets. Yes. POCKETS.
Dress should fit modern sizes 4-10. Approximately 20" across chest. Shoulder to shoulder measures 18". 50" from shoulder to hem. Bell sleeves measure 20". Invisible zipper at back and single hook and eye at neck. Fully lined. Very good vintage condition, with a few loose gold threads and one missing rhinestone. Some minor stains on lining. Free domestic shipping.
