Hawaiian poolside-style ensemble, 1960s
The ensemble belonged to the personal secretary of Charles Englehard Jr., the inspiration for the title character of the Ian Fleming novel Goldfinger. How fab to wear this beauty to a Hawaii Five-0 retro party!
Made in Hawaii for Ohrbach's, the ensemble is the epitome of 1960s sophisticated glamour. At first glance the ensemble appears to be if silk. In fact, it was made from very fine, satin-like cotton woven to resemble watered silk.
The bold floral print of the tunic top is delightful. The top closes in front with fabric loops and Chinese knot buttons. The neckline is finished with self-corded piping. The capri pants are lined with white cotton and close on the side with a metal zipper.
The condition is excellent and wearable.
The tunic measures: 36" bust, 30" waist, 38" hip, and 36" from shoulder to front hem.
The pants measure: 26" waist and 37" side length.
