Made in a rich purple hopsacking-type fabric, it shows the simplistic, sport-inspired cutting of her earliest work - which was so radical at the time. It also has the much desired 'gold label', which is believed to be the highest Quant label available, indicating quality and rarity. The early signs of mod are here, with the plain decoration in the horizontal black bands at the hem of the tunic top and the double buttonholes on the cuffs. I'm unsure if anything was actually meant to fasten through these, or if it was a quirky feature just for show.
