1970s Ann Buck Jersey with Leather Trim Print Dress
Ann Buck was one of the British designers during the 1970s and her label is a little harder to find then some of her contemporaries. This particular dress actually reminds me of some f the Jean Muir pieces I have had in the shop and it is interesting to wonder who influenced who. Like Muir and many of her fellow designers of this time period she was using and working with fluid flowing jerseys and this piece is an outstanding example of just that. The jersey used is very fluid and has a wonderful drape and movement to it. It was hand screened with colorful dashes of color from top to bottom - little kites with trailing tails. It is cut very loose through the body with deep set arms and a flowing swinging skirt that has a bit of a forties feel to it. The cut makes it very forgiving on lots of body types. I love the red leather trim with its little dot and diamond cut outs that adorn the cuffs and run as piping over each shoulder. The neck is adorned with the same treatment but in a black suede. Excellent condition
Unlined and closes with snaps down the front. Each sleeve snaps to close at the cuff. This dress came with a belt that I believe is the original but is not marked - it is photoed separately. It will be included but please note that unlike the dress which is excellent condition the belt is not - it shows wear and cracking. It was priced based on the dress alone.
