Presumably designed for stage, film, or party costumes, these ensembles appear to be inspired by Asian and Polynesian dress. The ensemble on the left is a long-sleeved tunic and pants ensemble while the ensemble on the right appears to be a printed dress with pleated skirt and yoke. The ensembles are worn with a "coolie" style hat and floral headpiece, respectively.
