About

Ethnic 1970's 100% cotton tan and brown caftan by OPUS 1 by Diana Martin. Made in Mexico. Expat fashion designer settled in Guadalajara in the 1970's and created one of the hippest clothing lines and stores located in Mexico and sold to American tourists. Her clothes were right for the times and have stood the test of time. Attention to detail, ethnic inspiration, great fabrics, and comfort make her designs both wearable and collectible today.

The body of this great caftan is a solid brown, while the long sleeves and bust are striped in many hues of the same shade. The sleeves are trimmed with fringe at the hems and shoulder seams. Ms. Martin's signature tassel, made up of wonderful triangles, dangles down the center front of the caftan. This caftan does not have a closure and can be easily put on over the head.

One size fits all.

*All MRS Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping, so that they are ready to wear upon arrival.
