Stunning vintage 70s Bruce Oldfield skirt.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Bruce Oldfield graduated from St Martins School of Art in 1973, and has bestrode the fashion world ever since! Most famous for his occasion wear, he is a favourite of many Hollywood actresses (Sienna Miller, Faye Dunnaway, Charlotte Rampling) and of international royalty, including the late Princess of Wales. The Bruce Oldfield label was launched in 1975.
Made from 100% silk in a colour reminiscent of a famous brand of chocolate, I believe this skirt to date from the late 1970s. It is pleated, but not particularly full, and falls to the mid-calf; in many ways, a classic style. It fastens at the back with a zip and hook and eye, and this produces a cross-over efect, culminating in an eght-inch split at the hem. This is repeated at the front of the skirt.
The fabric is heavy and hangs really well. The skirt is fully lined, and apparently perfect. It feels just fabulous on! Waist measurement is 25 ½ ins (65 cms), hips 39 ins (99 cms). Length of skirt overall is 30 ins (75 cms).
