With daylight savings time just around the corner (I can't wait for the longer days), now is the perfect time to add some Ossie Clark to your wardrobe. His maxi dresses in moss crepe look fabulous with sandals when the sun is shining. With signature full sleeves, wide collar, and zig-zag waist insert in Celia Birtwell's brilliant mix of tulips and graphic checks of blue and black, this is a wonderful collectible example of both Ossie Clark's classic silhouette and Celia Birtwell's memorable print. It's a perfect match! Way before Decades started the blog, we had a major Ossie Clark retrospective with around 150 pieces at our store in Los Angeles. It was the most amazing collection. I only wish we still had all those incredible pieces, but they went to very happy homes...as I imagine this one will, also.

Ossie Clark for Radley black maxi moss crepe dress with Celia Birtwell print sleeves, collar, and waist, c. 1970s. Marked size 36, modern size 4 to narrow 6. SOLD
