    Kerrybrooke was one of the house brands of Sears, Roebuck & Company. - at one time the largest retailer in the United States. It operated a mail-order company as well as a chain of stores across the USA. Products sold were mid-priced and often exclusive to the company.  During the 1930s, Sears began to develop its own clothing brands, such as Kerrybrooke, Charmode, Roebucks, King’s Road, and The Fashion Place labels.The slogan for the Kerrybrroke line was Kerrybrooke IS fashion.

     

    Condition 

    This eye-catching dress is in great vintage condition for its age with the only issue I can see is a small iron-on patch on the inside of the dress bodice - not at all visible from the outside due to the print - not sure why this was placed there but does not detract from the presentation or wearability of the dress.  In fact, I nearly overlooked it. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent condition without any notable rips, stains, fading or holes. On close inspection the only thing I can add is that the hem appears slightly uneven but in no way detracts from the presentation of the dress. A sophisticated Summer dress that can be worn with many accessories for a different look.

    Comment

    This is a very pretty Summer dress, that can be made to appear bright yellow or subdued buttercup depending on the underneath slip used - it is sheer. Condition is excellent, if I was extremely picky I could say some slight discolouration to  a few raised dots but hardly noticeable overall. Such a pretty dress!

    Carolyn Schnurer

    During her twenty-year career in fashion, from 1944 to 1964, Carolyn Schnurer was a pioneer in the newly emerging American sportswear industry. Directing her designs toward young active women, Schnurer developed coordinates and dresses that were unfussy, required minimal foundation garments and could be worn for a variety of occasions. She was particularly renowned for her culturally-inspired resort collections, rather than producing blatantly costumed designs. Schnurer's work maintained a classic American silhouette while incorporating cultural themes in fabric selection or construction detail.

    Carolyn was renowned for researching different cultures and interpreting these into her dress  and textile designs. An essential part of her extensive research was to actually visit a country to gain in-depth knowledge of its architecture, environment and customs. 

    This particular dress is from Schnurer’s 1952  “Flight to Japan" collection and highlights  her inspirational dress design techniques and use of unusual textile patterns. Two other dresses from this same collection are displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to traveling to Japan for inspiration, she also made stops in Hong Kong and Myanmar (Burma). Later research saw her travel to many different lands for her collections.

    A Carolyn Schnurer design comes up for sale very rarely and this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase your very own piece of fashion history!!

     

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age free from rips, major stains, notable fading or holes. There may be a couple of tiny spots here or there but nothing immediately obvious. The dress appears to have been hardly worn. One point I would like to make is to emphasise  the versatility of the dress design. The attached stole can be worn in different ways -  apart from the most obvious shown in photos 1 and 2.  For example, I have shown it used as  a cummerbund sash showing the front effect in photo 4  and what it looks like from the back in photo 5.  I am sure you can come up with may different ways to wear this unique dress! The last photo highlights where the base of the stole is attached to the dress itself - across the back side seams.

    I would also like to point out that that there is nothing wrong with the top button of the dress it's just that I couldn't secure it on my mannequin. We are more than happy to answer any inquires about this item.

    Bucherer
    Famous worldwide for its high quality, high procession watches. Based in Lucerne, Switzerland it has been producing high calibre watch since the 1880s. Higher grade watches have traditionally used a jewelled movement, which means that jewels (originally natural ruby later synthetic) were actually used in the movement. These jewels are functional, used as bearings for the wheel trains and in high-wear parts such as the escape lever and impulse jewel. A lower-end movement prior to 1970 would typically use 5 to 7 jewels. 

    Comment

    Absolutely gorgeous timepiece, functions well and has no flaws or damage to its physical appearance. This is a true collector's item.

    * Vibrant holly design print

    * Classic A-line silhouette 

    * Long bell sleeves

    * Original cardboard packaging by Hallmark

    Paper Clothing made of disposable cellulose fabric was a short-lived fashion novelty item produced in the US during the 1960s. The paper dress captured the imagination of vibrant, youthful, optimistic consumers who prized variety over durability.  By 1967, paper dresses sold in major departments stores, along with specialised clothing boutiques. At the height of demand, 100,000s were made each week. Even Ossie Clarke and Celia Birtwell, created their own versions. These paper fashions were exciting, fun, and cheap, enabling the wearer to stay up to date with the newest prints and styles. Alas, as the novelty appeal of paper clothes wore off, their downsides became more apparent. They were generally ill-fitting and uncomfortable with garish colours that could easily rub off. And worse of all, they could be flammable and dangerous. One year later, paper clothing had all but disappeared from the marketplace.

    This novelty item appears to be in great condition, with only some minor wear on the packaging.  Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Malcolm Starr
    The design house was inaugurated in the 1940's by Malcolm's father, Frank - a well-known figure in the textile industry.  The family was one of the first to operate boutiques in Hong Kong and Japan. "Even members of the royal family in Japan wore his fashions,'' said Starr's sister, Gloria Starr Kins. "You would always see at least 30 percent of the women in any elite country club wearing a Malcolm Starr." The typical Malcolm Starr dress was usually a simple but sculptural shift dress - often with elaborate beading or trims. The company also made day attire including dress and coat ensembles. By the end of the 1970s, they were also making separates.  Starr was also a partner with Teal Traina in Gino Charles label.  It is clear to see why Malcolm Starr's dresses are so sought after today. This one has a timeless glamour that will certainly make an impact.
