GORGEOUS VINTAGE EARLY 1990s NATORI SAKS FIFTH AVENUE PINK & BLUE APPLIQUE SATIN ROBE PEIGNOIR WITH OBI SASH
An absolutely gorgeous vintage satin robe by Natori from Saks Fifth Avenue from the early 1990s. The label is identical to the label on the Vintage Fashion Guild website and my thanks to them.
You know if the robe comes from Saks that is going to be gorgeous as well as expensive and a quality item.
It was very difficult for the camera to capture the colors of this robe as no sooner would I adjust one of the colors and it would make the other color the wrong shade. So all I can say is the color are pale baby pink and baby blue with a touch of aqua - not mint green or peach or lavender as some of the photos show. The real life colors are much prettier than shown in the photos.
The robe is silky smooth with a light flannel feel to the inside. There is a baby blue obi sash which can be tie in front as I did or make it into a bow. Loops for the belt. Inside ties. 2 pockets in the seams. On the sleeves and close to the bottom of the robe, there are quilted satin appliques filled with polyfill as well as the approximate 4" hemline of the robe on both sides in front which makes it puffy.
This is such a glamorous robe that I am considering keeping it for myself as Natori is my favorite designer for sleepwear and I am sure I am never going to see another one as pretty as this again. You just don't see robes like this nowadays!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
