Prettiest 1960s Pink Silk Embroidered Asian Evening Coat w Top Stitched Cuffs & Collar

The Western world in the twenties to fifties had a special fascination with the far East and this highly influenced the fashion of that time period. In particular Japan and China began to export and sell pieces that they made specifically for the tourist market. These often combined classic design elements of their respective cultures with a slight Western twist to the cut and colours that were used. You will often will see the shorter jackets come up for sale but the longer cut coats like this one are a little harder to find. They are far more versatile in my opinion. These were the most prized both then and now. This one is stunning. I own the twin of this one and besides mine and this one I have rarely seen one in this colour before. It is made from a very fine soft dusty pink with a floral detailing that runs over the entire coat. These are embroidered and woven directly into the silk with a matte thread. The cuffs are top stitched for extra detail. At the neck that same top stitching detail runs along the collar and continues down the front and around the hem and then it also details those pretty curved pockets at the front. It closes down the front with silk frog buttons in a matching pink silk. It is lovely and light which makes it very easy to wear. Excellent condition with a minor note below
