Bonnie Cashin Dog Leash Skirt in Blue & Green Plaid Mohair, 1950's

$1,500

About

This is an early version of Bonnie Cashin's iconic dog leash skirt in a blue, green and ivory white plaid mohair with blue leather waistband. Bonnie Cashin was one of the great innovators of modern fashion and helped create the American look and influenced sportswear design for decades. The 'dog leash' skirt is designed to offer a change of lengths with clips and rings reminiscent of everyday hardware. The skirt hooks at the waist and has one side pocket. The fringed hemline and voluminous mohair has a deconstructed appearance which provides a unique look which is as cutting edge now as it was in the late 1950's. Label present at the waistband. CONDITION The skirt is in fair condition with wear to the leather waistband caused by a clamp hanger as shown in photographs 11 & 12 and numerous flaws to the mohair apparently due to moth damage. Professional 'reweaving' repairs have been made to some of the flaws with an example shown in photograph 13. There is a stitched repair shown in photograph 14. In spite of repair work, some of the flaws are still noticeable on close inspection though the volume of fabric, texture and folds serves as camouflage. One of the original hooks is a little mangled as shown in photograph 15. The skirt is best for collectors or those who do not mind flaws when considering the historic importance of the design. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS The size is not marked though the skirt best fits U.S. size 4 with attention to the following measurements. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4. Waist 25" Hips 58" Length From Waist to Hem 37"
