1970s Janice Wainwright Embroidered Peacock Feather Chiffon Wrap Top
This top is fantastic and one of the best of hers that I have had in the shop. Plus, it had the added bonus of having the earliest Janice Wainwright at Forty Seven Poland Street label. Pieces with this label are from the beginning of her career and for me, really showcase her talent and are among the very best of her work.
This pretty little bohemian spirited top is made of a black crepe chiffon and simply slips on, wraps and then ties into place. There is a partially attaches tie belt that allows you to do this. This also adds some detail and shape to the back where it is attached. The wrapping of it give it a plunging front and makes the fit through the bust easy. Each sleeve is cuffed and slightly full above those. Under the waist it has a little peplum effect that is very pretty. Her signature embroidery covers this one in a dense pattern of silver and gold thread peacock feathers. These are highlighted with soft pop of pink too. I love how the edges pick up the silver of the feathers with a silver metallic cording. It's just wonderful. Excellent condition
