Bed jacket

Collection Type

  • Clothing and accessories




Dark peach silk bed jacket. The bed jacket is short sleeves and is short in length. The front is open and has a long silk tie attached to either side in the middle for closure. The ties are of uneven length. Around all the edges of the jacket there is a border of lighter peach silk with cording detail. The inner edge of the border created by the cord, random and jagged, almost like flames. The bottom edge of the front comes down to a point on both sides. The sides are completely open and have only two areas where they are joined - one at the waist and one midway down the underside of the sleeve. There is a monogrammed APP on the right breast in a stylized, art deco-like design. There are two extra lengths of peach silk which appear to be ties. They are of different lengths. The back has the same border design all around the edges. It is slightly shorter than the front and comes down to one centered point at the bottom. The sides are split and there are two corners or points on either side of the jacket. The main body of the back is the dark, shiny, peach silk.
