In Praise of Vintage Couture: Chanelle & Jacquelyn -- Orange Appeal

Chanelle (left) is wearing a vibrant orange silk caftan by Liberty of London.  This 1970's piece has a band collar, self-belt and drop shoulders. The gold frog closeurs and piping details are on the side seams, sleeves and slits.

Jacquelyn (right) is wearing a Tangerine silk opera coat with pockets circa 1960's [Private label]. Coat has yoke back with pleating detail and slight train. The raglan sleeves are dramatically reduced at the wrist giving contrast to the soft isometrical collar. The coat is lined in lemon yellow silk moire.  The patch work skirt in psychedelic hues and patterns of the 70's has gathered waist and self belt. The skirt is lined in off white silk moire.

Accessories by House of Humphrey.
