Vintage Catherine Buckley Edwardian Velvet Maxi Suit UK10-12

Vintage Catherine Buckley Velvet Edwardian Riding Suit, UK10

Regular price £400.00 Sale

An incredible vintage piece by British Boutique designer Catherine Buckley from the late 1970s, this is Jimi Hendrix meets Downton Abbey.  The cut is dramatic enough, with a floor length A line skirt and hip length button-up long sleeved jacket with fitted bodice and mandarin collar.  

But the thing that draws the eye here is the incredible fabric, created by Veronica Holden using ‘Shibori’ technique , a sophisticated version of tie & dye on velvet.  The base colours are bruise pinks and purples, with slashes of contrasting yellow, all in a soft plush velvet.   The buttons are looped in the same fabric and in very good condition. A really wonderful garment.
