Mina Poe Paris Embellished Silk Caftan Dress
The caftan is a celebrated garment that has special historical and cultural significance in many countries, including Morocco. It may be worn every day or on special occasions, and has served as the source of inspiration for countless couture designers due to its superb functionality that also allows for intricate detail and artistic expression.
This Mina Poe Paris caftan dress exudes an effortless elegance that is alluring and luxurious at once. Done in black silk that has a nice luster, the caftan features gem-like columns of glittering roses and vines made up of iridescent beads and sequins in shades of navy, purple, emerald, sage, and gold. The caftan begins with a high neckline and incredible angel sleeves that extend the length of the dress.
The dramatic sleeve detail is complimented by the relaxed columnar silhouette that falls from unstructured shoulders to a maxi length at the ankles. While the collar and front of the dress are heavily embellished, the sides and back of the caftan are largely unadorned, save for two long columns of navy roses that extend downwards from each shoulder, creating a striking contrast with the expanse of black silk. The caftan moves beautifully with the wearer and feels almost ceremonial in nature while easily holding its own alongside Western evening gowns and ensembles.
