1960s Rare Alice Pollock Moss Crepe Wrap Top
Alice Pollock was the girl behind the Quorum label and partnered with, and it could be said discovered, Ossie Clark and Celia Birwell. They designed the clothing filled the shop from 1965 - 1973. This top was surely designed by or heavily influence by Ossie and Celia. It is made from moss crepe - a favored fabric of Ossie's - in a heavy cream color. This is edged in purple thread embroidery that pops off the backdrop and highlights the design and cut. It has a small neat collar and wraps half way over itself with an almost Eastern feel to the cut. I love how it ties at the side and that the sleeves are cut wide and straight with a slightly angled cut to the ends. Presents as excellent condition
Unlined and wraps to close, tying at the side. There are two areas of thinning at the upper back shoulder - please super-size the photo to see - and a small area that looks like a faint water stain on the back - it would not photo. Priced accordingly but also with its rareness in mind.
