c1973 Biba Rare Rainbow 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 iconic rainbow design. These are the rarest of all to find. I have a few variations of this in the shop right now and each is as fabulous as the last. The entire vest 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 slips on with no closures. 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 with no closures The measurements given are flat across the back but keep in mind the front does not close so there is room at the front of you need a little extra
