1973 Biba of London Blue Chevron Wool & Faux-Fur Belted Jacket w/ Skirt
If you were an "It Girl" in London during the 1960's and 1970's, Biba is where you would have shopped. This super rare and ultra timeless royal-blue jacket ensemble, dating back to her 1973 fall-winter collection, is a perfect example of the brand's genius. It is fashioned from a fantastic fully lined chevron patterned wool with all the classic hallmarks of Biba's best; skinny lean sleeves, hidden button closures and a dramatic deco waist belt. The jacket even has chic black faux-fur trimming that resembles Persian lamb. The silhouette really channels that late 1930's femme fatale look Biba's founder, Barbara Hulanicki, loved so much. We added many pictures so you can appreciate this iconic ensemble.
