Sale Lingerie of the Week: Josie Natori Chinoiserie Caftan
Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links.
I was a bit torn about posting this caftan. It's gorgeous; there's no doubt about that. But at $345 (on sale from $495), I wondered if it was more suited to one of our "Lingerie Lust Object" features instead... you know, the ones where I post about the luxury pieces I'll never get the chance to own. But I figured my version of expensive isn't necessarily everyone else's version of expensive, and since this item is actually on sale, a sale feature is where it belongs.
I've been eyeballing this Josie Natori Chinoiserie Caftan for a few weeks now. Though I've never owned a caftan, it looks like the perfect kind of summer lounging attire. Loose, breezy, elegant... and 100% silk. I'm loving the rich red combined with the golden print, and the ruched center creates just enough structure to make this appropriate for out of doors (particularly if "out of doors" means your beachside resort restaurant). I firmly believe that luxury lingerie should have some element of fantasy yet still be eminently wearable, and Natori's caftan checks both boxes.
Sizing is S, M, L, fitting a maximum of US16. Care instructions recommend hand washing or dry cleaning for best results. And if caftans aren't your style, this printed silk is also available in a robe or nightgown.
What do you think? Have you ever worn a caftan? And could you see something like this in your wardrobe?
