Below: "Chateau de Chantilly" in the 'Noguchi style'. Snuggle up in a luxe, plush & decadently splendorous charmeuse soft chinoiserie kimono robe, trimmed in red satin at the sleeves. 
Seen on the chinoiserie panel are exotic birds and pheasants perched in delicately stylized foliage. The chinoiserie also has faux 'distressed' areas to remind you of the chateau & palazzo walls it once belonged to. A classical revival inspired beauty!

Complete with 2 hidden inseam pockets and a gorgeous double sided satin sash. The robe has a luscious & heavy drape. The texture of the satin is very soft, just like charmeuse.
The blues change between richly luminous chrysocolla, turquoise, amazonite, verdigris & aquamarine. The red flowers are a mix or reds, rubies & mustard. The greens are a rich emerald.
Inspired by François Boucher, Thomas Chippendale, and Jean-Baptist Pillement.

100% polyester satin.






















Below: La vie Boheme. A beautiful blend of pattern and studied structure, this satin kimono is a delight for the senses. A wide, double piped collar panel & a wide double piped sash add lofty definition and details. The fabric is languorous & drapes like a dream. 

Colors are subtle champagne, aquamarine blue, peach mist, cameo pink, pale verdigris, black and white. The paisley pattern is bold & swirling, drawing from vintage Victorian & Jacobean styles.

Inspired by the poetic Isamu Noguchi & his sets for the graceful Martha Graham. Beautiful sleeves sway and billow with the slightest movement, making these robes the personification of elegance and delight. 

Images show the robe layered with the matching gown & some without.
