1960s Made in Greece Elaborate Metallic Gold Thread on Blue Caftan Dress
This is a fantastic sixties caftan with a luxe twist. The caftan is cut in a simple T shape that makes it very easy and comfortable to wear. The base is a woven cotton dyed to a deep blue. Onto this a design that is done from a gold lurex thread overlay. The completely covers the front of the caftan and runs down each sleeve. At the back there are two gold stripes. The design is quite beautiful and depicts double-headed eagles in and among curving vines and medallions. The gold against that deep blue backdrop id very striking. I love the ease of wearing a caftan at night and this one with its combination of blue and gold works wonderfully for just about any occasion. You can pair this with flats or heels and it would work either way. Excellent condition
