1970s Clobber by Jeff Banks Black Jersey Bare Back Halter Cut Skirted Jumpsuit
This fabulous little jumpsuit was produced by the Clobber label, a boutique in London that was run by Jeff Banks from 1964-1974. Banks is one of my personal favorites of the British designers of that time
This is a sexy and easy to wear halter front black jersey jumpsuit. This is the kind of design that would have ruled the night clubs of the seventies and it has a sexy, easy way about it. It is made from an easy to wear and care for black nylon jersey that moves well and drapes well once on the body. The legs under the skirt are cut with a skinny straight feel that tapers down as it nears the ankle. The waist is elastic so it sits well once on and is very comfortable to wear. A panel of the same jersey fabric is set around the waist to give it a skirt over pants feel. This is then slit open on both sides right up to the waist. So when you move you see the legs underneath more. It is really hard to convey how great this is on the body from the static photos but it is. This clever overlay really hides any flaws and makes you feel tall and skinny. The halter is a simple triangle front that ties up and around the neck. This leaves the back completely bare. It even has its original matching fabric tie belt to cinch in and shape the waist. It's the perfect, go with everything black and the jersey travels perfectly. Throw it on for day with flats or wear sky high heels at night. It is a fabulous versatile piece. Excellent condition with one small note below.
Unlined and slips on to wear It ties the back of the neck. The fabric has some stretch. There is one tiny pull on the fabric near the seam of the waist at one side. It is mainly hidden under the tie belt once on. Please see the photo after the label shot. The easy cut and stretch of the fabric should allow it to fit a range of sizes.
