1970's Ossie Clark Black White Deco-Print Celia Birtwell Blouse
English fashion designer, Raymond "Ossie" Clark, was a leading light in the London "swinging sixties" fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic garments. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning black & white art-deco print voile-cotton blouse is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering nipped-waist peplum design. I love the ascot-tie bow collar and the sculpted billow-sleeves. Ossie Clark's designs, especially those made in Celia Birtwell's prints, are right in step with 21st-century style. His genius comes from his ability to borrow from the past but capture the spirit of the now, creating timeless designs with a strong sense of place. In Judith Watt's book, Ossie Clark: 1965-1974, Anna Sui explains, "He dressed the woman we all wanted to be: the rock star's girlfriend." So as long as there is rock, Clark's look is one that won't fall from style.
