Christine Vancouver: Bringing Old Hollywood to the Boudoir

Ingrid Bergman

Everyone at A La Folie knows that I'm a nut for 1940's fashion. From blouson-backed dresses to mid-calf pencil skirts to seamed stockings, there is something undeniably feminine about apparel from eras gone by, and it's always a treat to find designers that are able to reclaim a bit of old world glamour.

Christine Vancouver Long Printed Robe $370

Christine Vancouver Long Pink/Almond Gown $335

Enter Christine Vancouver, an iconic line of silk charmeuse loungewear befitting the most discerning of nostalgia-obsessed starlets. From lace-busted long gowns to luxurious printed robes, Christine Vancouver has it all. These bias-cut wonders are as true to Deco fashion as is possible, and fit a variety of body types, from lithe ladies to curvaceous cuties. And just because Christine Vancouver's pieces are considered loungewear, it doesn't mean they can't be worn out and about -- the slinky gowns are sexy, yet restrained in the best possible way, making them a great ode to 1930's fashion when worn outside the bedroom.

Our edited selection has been steadily snatched up by fashionistas and doting husbands alike, but in case you need more incentive to begin coveting Christine Vancouver pieces, know this: there is no feeling quite like swanning around one's apartment in silk charmeuse (I should know). Release your inner Ingrid Bergman and make your dramatic entrance. You deserve it, kid!
