About

English fashion designer, Raymond "Ossie" Clark, was a leading light in the London swinging sixties fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing gowns and seductive ensembles. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning ivory and ruby-red wool treasure is a perfect example of his talent. The jacket has a beautiful nipped-waist construction with unique back swing design. I love the dramatic cuffed bell-sleeves and front pockets! The matching high-waisted maxi skirt is so modern and easy-to-wear. With this ensemble, you have one complete outfit or two amazing separates. Ossie Clark’s designs 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.
