This late 1960s to 1970s dressing gown by lingerie legend Claire Haddad is about as flirty and fun as a robe can get! Made of a luxurious, incredibly silky black satin, this sexy gown is perfect for moments where you want to look just as feisty as you feel. Floor length with an open front and long sleeves, with lush marabou feathers adorning the entirety of the opening, hem and sleeve cuffs. A smooth back and fitted waist that cinches closed with a long satin ribbon tie, giving definition and drama to the wearer. An excellent boudoir piece for a 60's pinup photo shoot. This robe will have you feeling like a true diva!
NOTE: Claire Haddad is a very special Canadian designer that was raised in the industry. Her parents were immigrants from Syria and Lebanon, and Claire started her career by assisting her parents with their store until the 1960's which is when her and her husband opened their own lingerie company. They had a very small staff that often worked from home to make a small quantity of each style until her name become more renowned in the USA. Claire wanted to create lingerie pieces that were not only beautiful, but also comfortable. She created her pieces to be worn, not just shown, and she cherished her culture so much so that you can see touches of Middle Eastern inspiration in her designs.
CONDITION - Very good to excellent: Marabou is in excellent (and very fluffy) condition, as is the body of the robe. The lower back above the hem has several pricks. It was nearly impossible to show this from the outside when photographing, so last image shows this area from the underside where you can see it much better. Ribbon tie is not original. I believe that original tie was made of the same satin material as the robe. Ribbon seems far too 'new' to be original, but is durable and thicker than most ribbon.
