1973 Ossie Clark Ivory Red Block-Color Wool Jacket & Maxi Skirt Dress Ensemble

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. Measurements Jacket Bust:34-35 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:25 inches Skirt Waist:24 inches Hips:35 inches Total Length:45 inches This vintage Ossie Clark couture designer ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or discoloration. Only sign of age is some very slight surface moth nibbles mainly to the rear jacket. This rare set is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
