The most lovely woman sold Decades this raw silk Thea Porter shocking pink tunic. She was friendly with Thea Porter in the early 1970s. At that time, she was an assistant to one of the greatest actors of the time and mingled with a very chic set. This is the only piece she kept that Thea Porter made specifically for her. How I wish she kept them all (and she wishes she had kept them all when she realized how desirable and collectible Thea Porter is in the 21st Century).

Keeping with Porter's tradition of Haute Hippie styling, the hot pink shantung jacket has a Nehru collar with Indian brocade inserts and trim and faux pearl knot clasp closures. From the side view, I hope you can notice the slot pockets and although this is a tunic, only a very few can wear this sans bottoms. Might I suggest white Capri jeans for the perfect warm weather? I noticed two small spots on the tunic that did not come out with cleaning. If you can live with the spots, I think you can love this a lots (rhymin')!

Thea Porter hot pink shantung tunic, c. early 1970s. Modern size 4 (two faint spots photos upon request), SOLD
