c. 1971. Machine-stitched velvet

Ossie Clark designed this coat. He was one of Britain's most influential fashion designers in the 1960s and 1970s. Clark used fabrics designed by his wife, the textile designer Celia Birtwell. For this coat Clark chose 'Floating Daisy', one of Birtwell's best-known textiles. A complementary grid pattern flatters the collar, cuffs and bodice. The coat's trim shape demonstrates Clark's skill at accentuating the female form.

Ossie Clark was a favored designer of London from the mid-1960s to the mid- 1970s. Just three months after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1965, his work appeared in British Vogue. At the same time, he began designing a collection of clothes for Alice Pollock’s store Quorum in Chelsea. With these events, Ossie Clark was introduced to the public and his fashion setting clientele grew. He is most known for his chiffon dresses of mixed prints, designed by his wife Celia Birtwell, but he was also an expert cutter and made exceptional tailored pieces. This suit is a testament to his skill, for the construction and cut allow for a perfect fit, creating a flattering silhouette. The plunging neckline is quite daring, but is a characteristic found in his fresh and innovative work.
