Vintage 1970 Ossie Clark Daisy Celia Birtwell Print Capelet Handkerchief Blouse

$1,400

About

A gorgeous Ossie Clark statement blouse dating back to his 1970 couture collection. Raymond "Ossie" Clark was a leading light in the London swinging sixties fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing dresses and unique cuts. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. One of the best things about Ossie Clark pieces come from his collaboration with the great Celia Birtwell. She created all of his prints and the combination of her use of color and his use of cut was magical. The blouse is an elegant capelet collar with lean, long sleeves. The wide white satin trimming adds so much depth and texture to the daisy print muslin cotton. I love the handkerchief hemline which is extremely figure flattering. Ossie Clark’s designs, especially those made in Celia Birtwell’s patterns, are right in step with 21st-century style. His genius comes from his ability to borrow from the past but capture the spirit of the now, creating timeless designs with a strong sense of place. In Judith Watt’s book, Ossie Clark: 1965–1974, Anna Sui explains, "He dressed the woman we all wanted to be: the rock star’s girlfriend." So as long as there is rock, Clark’s look is one that won’t fall from style. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Empire Waist:28 inches Length of longest point:30 inches This Ossie Clark couture blouse is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or discoloration. The blouse closes with hidden middle hook/eye. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
