Stunning and totally timeless Ossie Clark gray and red plaid wool dress coat dating back to his 1970 couture collection. English fashion designer, Raymond "Ossie" Clark, was a leading light in the London swinging sixties fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing gowns and seductive outerwear. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This ultra chic tailored treasure is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice has tons of covered buttons running down the front and lean, long sleeves. I love the slightly puffed shoulders and sculpted yoke collar. The nipped waist back-pleated princess skirt construction is so modern and easy-to-wear. Ossie Clark’s designs 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.
