1960s Hand Embroidered B. Cohen Pink Caftan Dress

This caftan dress is just amazing. It's made of a beautiful pink very light wool mix upon which are two patterns - one embroidered in a matching pink thread and the other in a gold lame thread. The effect of the gold on the pink is stunning and the fabric choice gives the caftan a little more weight and substance then it more usual silk or cotton counterparts. The embroidery work is all hand done and I can't even begin to imagine the hours that would have went into this fabric. I love the high collar and wide, forgiving cut. The fabric simply flows to the floor widening as it reaches the hem. There is actually yards and yards of fabric in this piece. Each sleeve is cut wide with both the cuffs and collar finished with a pink piping. It is very chic and simple and yet in no way is it simple at all. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back nylon and metal painted zipper. Pockets along each side at the hip. There is a teeny bit of thinning on the piping around the neck in a couple of spots bit this does not detract and it is priced accordingly.
