1970 Celia Birtwell Print Ossie Clark Dress

Every Ossie Clark dress is special but when it's an Ossie done with a Celia Birtwell print, it is even more so. Most pieces done in this particular cut were made from his signature moss crepe fabric, but this one is a rarer silk chiffon done through the body with a moss crepe collar and tie. The simple classic lines of this dress made it a best seller and its still a favorite of collectors now. It was primarily made in solid colors or printed moss crepes in its day. Its appeal lies in that fact that you just slip it on and the deep decolletage combined with the easy to adjust tie make it instantly flattering on just about any figure. It is one of the most iconic of his designs and is instantly recognizable as an Ossie Clark! Truly a special piece and taken up a notch with the use of the silk chiffon and pretty Celia Birtwell print. I love the classic billowing sleeves and easy feel to it. Excellent condition and highly collectible.
