Vintage 1969 Biba Documented White Cotton Lace Billow-Sleeve Maxi Dress & Jacket

$1,800

About

If you were an "It Girl" in London during the 1960's and 1970's, Biba is where you would have shopped. This beautiful and ultra-rare white maxi is a perfect example of the brand's genius. As shown, this garment (without the matching jacket) even has a full-page spread in the book "The Biba Years" written by Barbara Hulanicki and Martin Pel. This dramatic set is fashioned from a soft mid-weight cotton with crochet-lace trimming throughout. It has all the classic hallmarks of Biba's best- the skinny high capped shoulders, gorgeous high-neck, over the top billow-sleeves and a semi sheer sculpted empire. The matching winged short-sleeve jacket definitely gives the ensemble an angelic antique Victorian vibe. One of the prettiest Bibas I have ever seen and to find both pieces together is a rarity in itself. Measurements Dress Bust:32-33 inches Waist:Free Sweep Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:60 inches Matching Over-Jacket Bust:32-33 inches Waist:Free Sweep Hips:Free Sweep This 1969 Biba documented designer dress ensemble is in excellent condition with no seriously rips, stains or holes. Only signs of age are a few faint scuffs to the back of the dress and some faint watermarks which are not noticeable when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. An early Biba piece that is extremely collectible and infinitely wearable.
