c1973 Biba Baby Blue Sequin Vest Top
These were all the rage in the early 1970s and the Biba versions are the best out there. This one is amazing. It is an original Biba sequin vest done in the prettiest baby blue. I have a few variations of this in the shop right now and each is as fabulous as the last. This is a very rare baby blue and the entire top is completely covered in tightly spaced sequins so that every square inch is covered. The base the sequins are on is a stretch elastic that stretches to fit. It is sleeveless and has a deep plunging neckline. It crosses over itself and buttons at the front center waist. You can easily wear on its own or slip it over something else. It's a piece that you can style this a million ways and add an instant touch of 70s glitz and glamour. It is iconic Biba at its best and a true piece of fashion history. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes at the front with fabric covered buttons and a snap inside - the row of buttons down the one side are decorative only. It is elasticized so stretches to fit. The measurements are the approx comfortable range but it would give a touch more if needed
Bust: no defined side seams
Waist: approx 14-15" flat across the back from side to side
Total length: 17" from the top of the shoulder to bottom hem
