1970s Rare Green Ossie Clark Suit
This is a classic design from Ossie Clark and this version is interesting in two ways - 1st it is a vivid green color edged in a cherry red - a color mix that is far rarer Second it has the Ossie Clark couture label in it, not the Ossie Clark for Radley - this makes it an early design version that was later copied for the Radley label! I love the subtle sexiness of the suit - the "waved" front allows for a peek of skin to come through if you wish to wear it with nothing underneath. The pants have that amazing notched front to the their wide flared cut so when a girl walks you get a flash of shoe and ankle - a bit of a play on the Victorian era and a classic Ossie way of bringing in an element of the past with a genius twist to make it timeless. The pants are flat fronted and curve and skim over the hip until the flare at the bottom. The jacket is cut skinny and sexy with a bit of a flare at the hip to balance the pant. Classic Ossie at his best and an iconic design! Excellent condition!
Both piece are unlined and edged in a cherry silk satin ribbon piping finish. The top buttons to close. The pants have a back painted metal zipper at the waist with hook & eye on the waist band. The front mini pockets on the jacket are actual functional pockets. A slight touch of press marks to the seams as does happen with this fabric and a slight bit of mild piling to the fabric here and there - again a natural effect of age. Considering the rarity of color and label I do not consider these overt flaws.
