Ossie Clark Satin Lamborghini Jacket, 1960s
Ossie Clark was one of many notable designers of the 60s and 70s that defined the decades through vibrant colors and prints. His designs frequently incorporated slick feminine fabrics, peasant motifs and piecing meshed into a mod-meets-boho style. His elaborate work with prints has inspired many designers from YSL to Anna Sui.
This 1968 jacket is made in an onyx stretch satin with a print designed by British textile designer Celia Birtwell. The textile design melds modern gold tones and black geometric patterns with folk florals and an organic bubbling motif that encircle the jacket in a vertical orientation.
Wide peak lapels in solid satin balance the extremely tailored fit through the bust and waist. From the waist the jacket flairs slightly creating a soft yet structured hourglass form. This 1960s vintage jacket is an expressive statement piece that can be styled easily in the modern wardrobe and can be seen on fashion blogger Susie Bubble in the images to the left.
