Foale and Tuffin

Superb example of the early Seventies aesthetic of Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin. In the Sixties, their look was one of the finest example of 'mod', with clean lines and bold op-art inspired fabrics and symbols. But in the early Seventies, the look softened considerably, with the use of Liberty cotton fabrics and luxurious velvets in loose, romantic silhouettes.

This dress is a simple kaftan in a lush emerald green panne velvet, with a hint of a moiré effect in the bodice panels. In a photograph of Marion and Sally and their staff members, the girl on the far right is wearing the same style of velvet kaftan. Foale and Tuffin pieces are rare enough, but such a superb example of their bohemian aesthetic is even rarer!
