1970s Silk Chiffon Holly Harp Skirt & Top

Holly Harp was infamous for dressing rock stars like Stevie Nicks and was know for her draped, layered luxe bohemian princess looks and romantic vibe. She is infamous for flouncing tiered chiffon's and this is an outstanding example of her work in bias cut silk chiffon. The fact that it is actually two pieces just makes it better as you can mix and match them with other separates! The skirt cinches in at the waist and then flows in a widening arc of beautiful bias cut silk topped by silk chiffon. The top is a little miracle of cut. It weighs about as much as a scarf and just slips on, hooks with one little hook at the front and settles itself into place perfectly. Layers of chiffon with a ruffled front and flowing caped shoulders give it a sexy hippie chic edge. The front is scooped into a deep V and little ties tipped with crystals dangle from the center and on the sleeves. It is amazing and far more beautiful and airy in feel then my camera could capture. Really wonderful, rare set and in excellent condition

Shoulders: no defined seams
Bust: to 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: approx 19" from shoulder to hem

Waist: 12.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Skirt: 36" from waist to hem

Both pieces are fully lined, the skirt in a black silk and the top in layers of the same black silk chiffon, except for the top cape-like portion of the top. The skirt closes with a side, hand set painted zipper with hook & eye at the waist band. The top slips over the head with a hook & eye at the front. There is no label as the client removed it but it has the Holly Harp signature lace loops inside the skirt to hang it and it is absolutely a true Holly Harp piece.
