Lot 571: A fabulous 1960's Colin Becke two piece
To be sold at our Fine Art & Antiques, Wine, Clothing & Textiles on 17th Mar 2016
A fabulous 1960's Colin Becke two piece cocktail outfit. This lovely garment is of vibrant green slub silk and part satin lined in fuchsia pink. The full length sleeveless shift is sumptuously embellished with glass iridescent beads and flutes and embroidered appliques in floral and leaf designs. The neckline is high with a peep hole detail to the bodice - the back drops low from the straps of the dress. The bolero jacket has been cut carefully in order to show the dress to its full advantage. Also decorated with the same motifs and beads and with slit sleeves flaring from the upper arm to reveal the pink lining. There are four or five beads missing from this garment which have been saved to replace - otherwise this outfit is in generally very good condition. The intricate tailoring and decoration of this piece would lead one to assume it as a one off from this designer. Truly a beautiful garment! (2)
