This Asian style two piece tunic and capri pants set from the late 1950s or early 1960s is a set of vintage lounging pajamas or TV pajamas, a very mid-century fashion item that no longer exists—but is so much more stylish for hanging out at home on the couch than sweatpants and a tee! Although the bright coral silk shantung is fairly lightweight, it is not at all sheer, and the outfit would certainly be wearable in public by today’s standards. The hip length tunic top is embellished with Asian inspired embroidery and fastens with knots and loop buttons below the V neckline. It has elbow-length sleeves, patch pockets and side slits. The high waisted cigarette pants or capri pants taper to just above the ankle and fasten with a plastic zipper and button at the center back. The capris are fully lined with white, muslin-like fabric. The capris and the tunic could also be worn separately, of course. The set was made in Hawaii and may have been brought back home as souvenir of a trip there. It was never worn and it is in mint condition.
