Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These were all the rage in the early 1970s and the Biba versions are the best out there. This one is amazing. It is an original Biba sequin vest done in bold stripes. I have a few variations of this in the shop right now and each is as fabulous as the last. This one has bold vertical stripes done in a vivid pink and deep royal blue. The entire top is completely covered in tightly spaced sequins so that every square inch is covered. The base the sequins are on is a stretch elastic that stretches to fit. It is sleeveless and has a V neckline. You can easily wear on its own or slip it over something else. It's a piece that you can style this a million ways and add an instant touch of 70s glitz and glamour. It is iconic Biba at its best and a true piece of fashion history. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips over the head to wear. It is elasticized so stretches to fit. The measurements are the approx comfortable range but it would give a touch more if needed

Bust: approx 17-18" flat across the back from side to side
Waist: approx 15-16" flat across the back from side to side
Total length: 17" from the top of the shoulder to bottom

Modern size equivalent: XS-SML

This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival
