Celia Birtwell/Ossie Clark silk blouse size small 10/38 very rare

Beautiful, retro-style silk blouse from legendary designer Celia Birtwell in a variation of Step by Step, one of her signature Sixties prints. This collectors' item was part of the 2006 collaboration between Birtwell and Topshop, one of the first and best designer/chain store collections and an instant sell-out.

The quality is incredibly high - Birtwell herself was amazed that Topshop could produce such gorgeous garments from the original Ossie Clark, designs which were worn by pop stars, socialites and models in the late Sixties and early Seventies. She went on to do several more collections with Topshop, but this first was the best in both quality and design. The blouse has 14 covered buttons down the front, three at each cuff (and two spare), with a flattering sheared elastic waist and a long necktie that can be styled in a flattering pussy-bow or worn lose. Stunning however you wear it, this is a fabulous garment. Raymond "Ossie" Clark (9 June 1942 6 August 1996) was an English fashion designer.

1965 to 1974 is regarded as his zenith. His colourful patterned textiles were designed by Celia Birtwell to whom he was married 19691974.

Ossie Clark gave us so many firsts: combining different pattern fabrics in a single garment, patterned trousers, clashing prints, billowy bishop sleeves, harem pants, snake print. Please look at my other items.
