ROCHESTER SWAG DRESS IN RED STRIPE

Regular price £475.00 Sale

The 2nd Earl of Rochester, John Wilmot, was a favourite court poet of  Charles II. Known for his extravagant frolics, he lived a debaucherous life and enjoyed countless lovers including, as rumour has it, a young Nell Gwyn.

Made from the finest heavy weight woven silk sourced from a traditional British mill, this fabric is typically used for luxurious gentlemen’s dressing gowns of the old school tie variety found at expensive shops in Jermyn Street and Saville Row.

This dress has an asymmetrical drape and a tie up waist which  combines elegance with comfort.

Offered here in 100% silk. 

Length: approx 74cm.

Dry clean only.
