Printed chiffon top, satin trousers. Print by Celia Birtwell. C. 1969
This was the 'Dress of the Year' at the Museum of Costume in Bath. The ensemble embodies three of Clark's favourite design elements: a Celia Birtwell print, trousers for women, and ruffles to break a garment's surface. Prudence Glynn wrote in The Times,'This outfit exemplifies the 1969 look at its most appealing and its most subtle'.
Printed satinised cotton. Print by Celia Birtwell. Given by Hilary Anne Milne. Trouser suit c. 1969. This suit's sharp tailoring contrasts with the romantic sheerness of the other trouser suit in this case, designed in the same year. The donor wore this suit at her wedding in the spring of 1969.
