1970s Ossie Clark for Radley Purple Moss Crepe Dress

If you are an Ossie Clark fan then you instantly will have recognized this dress as being one of his designs. It is made from his signature moss crepe fabric which gives it the beautiful drape that you see! I love the classic cut and Ossie touch of sexuality in the way the front is set to cross over itself and plunge. The shoulders are finished with a pretty and feminine flutter sleeve. The bodice ends in a panel of pleated fabric that drapes down the front for a little extra volume. Attached ties circle the waist and add a soft suggestion of shape. I love the soft purple color that is a very unusual find - normally these are in more basic black versions. Presents as excellent condition

Unlined and slip over the head with attached ties at the waist that you can tie to add shape. There is the slightest of color variation - priced accordingly. It is more of a true purple then the cornflower blue-purple it photoed as.
