1970s RARE RADLEY Ossie Clark moss crepe maxi dress xs | new spring
Stunning and super rare color 1970's Radley (Ossie Clark designed) dress! Done in a brilliant hue of electric blue/purple moss crepe. Covered buttons down the front with loops and fully smocked wide waistline. Pointed lapels and plunging neckline are signature Ossie Clark. Wide dolman sleeves have wide cuffs with covered buttons and loops. The tops of sleeves balloon over the fitted cuffs. Long skirt. Unlined. A true collectors dress!
*While this doesn't have an Ossie Clark label, he did garments under the Radley label. The garment would be sketched by Clark, then Radley’s in-house designer would use the ideas to produce a variety of designs for Radley.
