Karen Millen Y2K Does 40s Baby Cord Tailored Waistcoat
Part of our Retro Revibe® range; please see below for more information.
Fabulous waistcoat from the Hey Day of Karen Millen before the Boohoo takeover, when the brand was synonymous with exquisite tailoring and quality. This baby cord is reminiscent of 40s wartime styling when women adapted their mens suits to wear during a time of fabric rations. In the naughties, these were popUlarly worn with bootcut jeans and a push up bra!
In good condition, some colour fading under the arms, but barely noticeable on. Recently dry cleaned.
Size Large (labelled UK14, EU42, US10) however this was designed to be tight fitting so will also work for a size Medium.
About Retro Revibe
This selectively curated collection of preloved, deadstock, and second-hand garments and accessories bridges the gap between buying original vintage and new reproduction fashion. Retro Revibe® offers a more sustainable alternative for those who don't want to buy new, or who don't have the time to care for original vintage, or even those looking for a budget-friendly way to adopt vintage style. Quality of these pieces is up to our VV standard and carefully checked, but minor signs of wear may be expected, with any flaws carefully noted and photographed. We use a grading system as follows:
Immaculate - as new, unworn, perfect.
Excellent - looks to be rarely worn with no flaws.
Very Good - worn but in good condition with no flaws.
Good - Signs of wear and/or may have minor flaws.
No returns accepted for Retro Revibe® items.
All items are carefully laundered and hygienically steamed.
