Sakura

Inspired by the delicately fragile beauty of spring’s cherry blossoms, Sakura capsule is the very essence of femininity. The blush pink silk is paired with soft grey silken thread embroidered lavishly to create a robe and two delicious nightgowns to spend all day in if possible.

The pink silk bias-cut nightgown cleverly hugs in all the right places flaring gently to knee-length.  Its only embellishment a V-shaped georgette yoke of embroidered cherry blossoms. Generous side splits in the curved hemline and wide shoulder straps add sleeping comfort to this slinky little gown. 

The second nightgown features diaphanous layers of chiffon of varying hues of delicious pink. Reflecting the many rosy shades that cherry blossoms display in nature, the top layer of this nightgown is heavily embroidered with blossoms that look tossed there by the wind.   Narrow spaghetti straps and an Empire bustline over the swirling layers of sheer chiffon complete this playful and extravagant nightgown. Wear it while twirling to a Strauss waltz or sit demurely sipping vintage champagne as the layers of gorgeous pink settle over your recumbent body.    

The kimono-styled robe draws additional inspiration from the luxurious opulence of the Seigfeld Folies era. The robe features lavishly embroidered sheer sleeves and a deep embroidered hem.  The gently gathered robe ties with a pink obi sash revealing the V-shaped heavily embellished yoke of the nightgown underneath. A finishing touch of glamour is the ultra-long grey silk tassels which hang from the sleeve ends. So elegant and so very 1920’s.

The Sakura Capsule is the perfect wardrobe to accompany the boredom of the COVID-19  quarantine and lock-down. Imagine whiling away the hours while floating about in layers and layers of sheer chiffon! Your spirits can’t help but soar every time you catch another glimpse of elegant silk tassels dangling from your lacy sheer sleeves. A positive antidote to doom and gloom – your only challenge is keeping the tassels out of your crystal champagne flute or delicate porcelain cup of Lady Grey tea!
