Ossie Clark-Late 70s-Early 80s

A late 70s-early 80s Ossie Clark
2 piece which recently sold at Kerry Taylor Auctions


As you all know, I'm an avid Ossie Clark fan. The majority of his pieces are from mid sixties to mid seventies and are either his own label, Ossie Clark or that of his collaberation with Al Radley, Ossie Clark for Radley. There are very few pieces around now that are from his own label, Ossie Clark Ltd, which ran from 1977 to 1981.


I was successful enough to win on EBay this gorgeous 2 piece, which is in a draping Grecian style, and has a low cut cowl front and back, silver sequin and beading shoulder details and a 5 panel tulip style skirt, in a flowy turquoise blue silk type jersey. It was a buy it now price of £44.99, which is quite a find-I was very lucky indeed!!



As you can see, it is in a typical early 80s style-so Dallas meets Dynasty-some of you aren't old enough to have watched this first time round!! But what I love about it is the deep colouring, the fluidity, the draping, the quality and the price-haha!!


It is quite a glamorous, cocktail style piece and although I haven't an event to wear it to yet, I know it will be worn at some stage!!

This gorgeous Ossie Clark hot pink late 70s-early 80s dress is available at Samaya Ling Vintage.com for £750




This early 80s Ossie Clark navy blue draped style 2 piece is available through CircaVintage.com for £580

What a great buy! Love the color and the cut of the two piece. You look stunning! The look reminds me so much of the 80s elegance both Krystal and Alexis displayed in Dynasty. I love 80s fashion done the right way, and thats exactely what you did here.

fashion herald said...

that blue two piece is amazing on you, congrats! and i can't believe I'm saying this, because I very much lived through 80's fashion, but those 80's Ossie's are doing the 80's rights!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion herald-thanks so much for that lovely comment! I too, lived through the 80s as my 1st fashion decade so to revisit it with quality pieces is really fun!!
