Elegant 1960s Dress and Jacket Set


Availability: In stock

Fabulous two piece formal dress and swing coat by Camette of Auckland. Made in bone coloured crepe with a beautiful soft pink lining, the swing coat is designed to be worn open with guipure lace flowers on the 3/4 length sleeves to match the dress. The classic shift dress carries the same guipure lace pattern with a cute bow on the left hip. It closes with a long zip and hook and eye at back. We imagine this dress with a pill box hat, gloves and box clutch. Its simple, clean lines are mod and timeless; so nice to see a unique early example of this Auckland label.
