In the late 19th century gentlemen of Great Britain became the most stylish advocates of dressing gowns (and pyjamas). Dressing gowns evolved to a must-have of a wardrobe and had mainly two functions: to protect a suit from tobacco smoke and keep warm at home. They were fashioned in heavy and thick velvet, wool, cotton and silk, often decorated with quilting, piping and tassels.
The dressing gown Nr. 21 Dark Burgundy Black is made from soft and thick cotton velvet, which drapes roomily around the body.
Shawl collar, cuffs and pocket details are made from black satin silk entirely quilted by hand and remind of the traditional English at-home robe style. The subtle understated contrast between burgundy and black looks quite elegant.
Lined in a matching soft black satin silk for outstanding year-round comfort, this dressing gown is a traditional loungewear essential for today's style connoisseur.
