Beautiful leaves and flowers adorn this vintage quilted robe by Elizabeth Arden and Torri Richard made in Hong Kong. It is very rare when one finds one of these quilted robes from Hong Kong in a print and even rarer when it is by Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetic magnate.
Torri Richard is well known for her beautiful vintage Hawaiian dresses and they and Elizabeth Ardens designs have sold in the past in the finest stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, I. Magnin, Neiman Marcus, etc.
I remember when I was growing up that I wanted one of these expensive quilted robes from Hong Kong but there was just no way that it was possible. I now have a very large collection of these in various gorgeous colors and am selling the remainder of my collection for someone else to enjoy them.
This lovely robe in shades of deep aqua/turquoise, purple, gold, mauve and silver.The robe is out of a fabric that is silky smooth and expensive as the robe was when it was new. These beautiful quilted robes were very expensive years ago and sold only at very high-end and expensive stores like Neiman Marcus, Goldwaters, Saks Fifth Avenue, I. Magnin, Neiman Marcus and stores similar to those.
These wonderful robes are the ideal robe to wear when you want to look glamorous for a special evening at home or entertaining someone.
What is so great about these vintage quilted robes from Hong Kong is that each of them has a different theme design. This one has a trailing vines and leaves. Some have koi fish, paisley, leaves and buds, others have chrysanthemums, hearts, rising phoenixes, roses or other types of flowers, etc. Each one is different.
The inside of these robes are finished with beautiful workmanship and have no exposed seams and are as beautiful as the outside of the robe.
This lovely vintage wrap style quilted robe from Hong Kong is lightweight and will keep you warm without weighing you down. There is a Mandarin collar with an intricate love knot closure above the long 23" invisible zipper in front. Pockets in the side seams. Immaculate silky aqua lining. This lovely robe is washable. It looks as though the robe may not have been worn much as it is in very good condition.

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.
