Vintage Bernat Klein size 14 green and peach shirt and maxi skirt set

£150.00

Product description

This vintage shirt and maxi skirt set is a stunning example of work by Bernat Klein, a visionary Scottish designer whose career spanned five decades from the 1950's. The Selkirk-based designer and artist was an inspired colourist who had an individual and idealistic approach to textiles drawn from his bold and experimental abstract paintings and he won international acclaim for his dazzling textural tweeds. The textiles resulted in distinctive designs which had never been seen before and examples of his garments are on show in the Fashion and Style gallery at the National Museum of Scotland.
This iconic 1970's set is made in Diolen Loft, a high quality jersey knit 100% textured polyester fabric, with a swirling, psychedelic pattern in muted hues of peachy orange, apple green, yellow, grey, tan and pale brown. The shirt features the distinctive '70's mod 'dog ear' collar and long sleeves, which widen at the base and are generously gathered into deep cuffs, each fastened with 3 small buttons. The shirt is front fastening with 9 small buttons sewn in pairs and the back is shaped with long body darts. The ankle length maxi skirt has a 1.25" wide waistband and is made with four panels which are shaped with short darts so it fits over the hip and flares out in an A line shape at the hem. The skirt is fastened at centre back with a tan, nylon zip and button on the waistband. This beautiful piece of vintage, textile and fashion art is in extremely good condition with just a very small brown spot on the button placket and no obvious signs of wear.
The measurements have been carefully taken as the size 14 label does not reflect present day standards.
