Kuulei Sportswear rouge pink floral maxi dress

 

This is a 1970’s Hawaiian maxi dress by Kuulei Sportswear. This style is quite different from the Japanese vintage available in the Bijou Caillou shop. I first didn’t know where to place it, but I decided to go for it, be it only for the cool name of the brand and the unique retro Hawaiian style.
The dress has a long and comfortable A-line silhouette, with a satin like polyester fabric with deep red hydrangea pattern. The sleeves are bell shaped. There is one side pocket, and the dress opens with a long zipper at the back.

 

Size on the label:  medium  (would probably fit an L as well)
Material:  100% polyester – unlined
Label:  Kuulei Sportswear – made in Hawaii
Condition:  excellent

 

Neck:  8″1/2  –  22cm
Shoulders:  13″  –  33cm
