Beautiful short kimono top, or haori, in dark blue with black and ivory trim. As I'm not fully educated on Oriental styles, there may be a more specific name for this type of kimono style blouse and forgive me for not knowing it. See photos. The sleeves are lined in a coral silk that is just gorgeous. My best guess as to age of this is 50s. No labels but there is a Warner Brothers ID tag inside one sleeve. Snaps up the front. This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Excellent vintage condition. The arm holes are a bit more open then they perhaps should be, especially on the right side, but thats just a seam that needs restitching. One side of the ivory trim needs about two inches re-tacked down. Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..) that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, as is and Final Sale.
Measures taken lying flat, doubled in bust, waist and hip.
Shoulder to shoulder: About 21"
Bust armhole to armhole: 39" but as the armpits are open there may be some play here
Shoulder to bottom hem: 19"
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film. Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier. I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however. That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
