A 1940s peignoir set by legendary couture lingerie designer to the stars, Juel Park. The peignoir is made of sheer chiffon with ruffled 3/4 sleeves and a gathered bust. Floor length with an incredible train in the back, cascading from the waist and widening toward the ground. Blush pink lace adorns the waist, with a sewn in tie in the front. The nightgown has ruffled chiffon cups with a silk charmeuse body falling to the ankle. Stunning blush pink detail along the center of the bodice and center of the skirt. This remarkable set is one of a kind, as Juel Park was primarily a custom designer during this era.
WHY IT'S SO SPECIAL:
Juel Park was a couture lingerie designer in Beverly Hills, creating custom made pieces for Hollywood's elite. Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, and Elizabeth Taylor are just a few of her clientele. You will not find this set again as it was one of a kind.
CONDITION - Very good: Completely intact and in wearable condition. The peignoir has a few scattered spots that may lift with professional cleaning (I was too nervous to wash myself) hard to notice under the folds of the skirt. One pinhole in the back and a fray spot on the right shoulder. The nightgown also has a faint cluster of spots on the back below the waist that are hard to see unless in the right lighting. Some breaks in the lace on the front. See last image, more available upon request. Use zoom feature!
