Before we move into the late ’60’s and early ’70’s, here’s a beautiful decorated sweater meant, mostly, for evening wear. It is fully lined in silk with black beads and spangles decorating front and back.
Made in Hong Kong, the quality is a cut above many garments made elsewhere. This seems to have been the case for many decades. It’s another one of those classic garments that is a must-have for any vintage wardrobe and, maybe, more than one.
Though this was particularly true for garments made several decades ago, I still take special note when I find modern clothing that has been made in Hong Kong. The materials and tailoring are almost always excellent in garments made there..
There is no wrap more elegant, excepting perhaps a wonderful vintage fur, than a beautifully-made hand-decorated fine wool cardigan thrown over your shoulders. It can be worn in many ways and will never let you down.
