Edwardian Chic Hostess Gown
Channel your inner countess with this shimmering velour Edwardian Chic Hostess Gown or lounging robe. Exuding regal romance, the glittering sequin accents and the ornate golden paisley and acanthus embroidery—lavishly embellishing the neckline and cuffs of this Edwardian Chic Hostess Gown—emulate the exotic opulence of Edwardian finery. Button-placket front, side seam pockets. Poly spandex velour. Imported. Sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL.
For the well-to-do, the Edwardian Era, or the Gilded Age, was characterized by luxurious living and beautiful clothes. Elegantly reflecting that period’s extravagance, this Edwardian Chic Hostess Gown recalls velvet robes and caftans—some with elaborate stitchery—in our American History Museum’s vast costume collection.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
