After our last print catalog sold last week (!!! Thanks everyone !!!) we wondered how to keep sharing all this goodness with the world. Daily Candy sure had an idea and has officially leaked the password to the Secret Summer Catalog shop here. But you have to hunt for it, those clever, clever, girls…
So if you didn’t get a catalog and have been wondering what the heck we’ve been up to, this is for you! But hurry, the Secret Summer Collection is going fast!
‘Diamonds and Roses’ Evening Coat, Zandra Rhodes and Jourdan Charles, 1969, London, screen printed felt, trimmed with bead-decorated streamers, Victoria and Albert Museum.
From the V&A:
In 1969 and the early 1970s Zandra Rhodes made a number of screen-printed felt coats and capes with immense flared or circular panels. These garments were an ideal canvas for her bright, painterly patterns. This coat was originally worn over a screen-printed chiffon hooded dress in matching colours, with a pair of yellow patent shoes by Charles Jourdan. It was worn by Irene Worth in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Edward Albee’s play Tiny Alice staged at the Aldwych Theatre, London, in 1970.
