A gorgeous Ossie Clark for Radley moss-crepe print tunic blouse dating back to the mid-1970's. Raymond "Ossie" Clark was a leading light in the London swinging sixties fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing dresses and unique cuts. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. One of the best things about Ossie Clark pieces come from his collaboration with the great Celia Birtwell. She created all of his prints and the combination of her use of color and his use of cut was magical. The blouse has one of her deco floral designs. The collared plunge and billow sleeves are fantastic. I love the back sash-tie belt which is extremely figure flattering. Ossie Clark’s designs, especially those made in Celia Birtwell’s patterns, 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.
