2 Piece Set in Black and White
100% crisp, substantial cotton black & white poplin with just the right weight to maintain its authentic, vintage-true shape. Exclusive Whirling Turban screen print design; sold out.
The motif almost looks a bit Mexican but in fact it is inspired by a peach motif from a 1940’s kimono designer’s idea book! Peaches were to the Japanese a metaphor for the female… well, you know.
This set is one of a kind. The corselette combined with a separate wrap sarong skirt looks like a dress but you can wear the top and skirt separately as well! Another great thing about having 2 pieces is that the skirt waistline will settle right into your own, making the fit much more precise and more like a custom fit.
Sure to be a wardrobe staple for years to come and attract compliments and attention, while the quality is ever so refined.
- The corselette is boned from top to bottom in the front. It comes with two button-in sweetheart halter straps- one in contrast colors and one in the dress’s main print. Or wear it strapless for cocktails. The sleek back view has all elastic ruching so it remains snug with boning in the back as well and does not collapse or rumple. The channeled strips of boning in back also provide a stylistic corset reference.
- The wrap sarong skirt is universally flattering on everyone with it’s diagonal drape and accent at the hip. It can be cinched up for an entrance or loosened a bit after dinner at the Mocambo Club.
