1970s Ossie Clark Radley Crepe Dress

If you are an Ossie Clark fan then you instantly recognized this dress. It is perhaps the most infamous of all the dresses he designed while at Radley. Made of his signature moss crepe it has just enough stretch to instantly cling and form to the body in it! I love the strong nod to the forties in the cut and the updated Ossie sexuality in the way the buttons are set to leave little gaps of skin showing through. It is meant to be work with nothing underneath as are all Ossie Clark dresses. The shoulders are a pretty black chiffon through which the skin peaks through. The neck can be worn closes or left open! I love it! Great condition.

Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: 15-16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam of the lining
Length: 44" from neck to hem

Unlined and closes at the front with a tightly spaced row of moss crepe fabric covered buttons and a tie at the top of the neck. There are a couple of thinning spot in the chiffon that are stable. Please super size the photos to see. It is priced accordingly. The moss crepe does have a bit of stretch
