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.

Material:  100% polyester – unlined
Label:  Kuulei Sportswear – made in Hawaii

Very light very mini sleeveless dress with pink novelty print

Very light sleeveless mini dress with pink novelty print 1

 

This very sexy mini summer dress must have been the star of the Japanese 70’s. It is made of an extremely light viscose crepe fabric with a fragile silky feel, delicate and easy to wrinkle, sheer when seen a against the light. It was tailor made and hand sewn, with the fabric manufacturer’s label (Reimon d’or Original Print) running along all the back of the dress on the inside. The clumsy looking seamwork on the inside of the dress makes it a true collectable!

Estimated size: S / XS
Material: Viscose crepe
Label: Fabric manufacturer: Reimon d’or Original Print
Condition: Excellent

Collar: 6.75″ – 17cm
Shoulders: 13.75″ – 35.5cm
