Stirling Cooper was founded by Ronnie Stirling in the late 1960s. Directly out of college, around the same time, Antony Price joined Stirling Cooper and this would be considered his readying, his apprenticeship for his accomplishments to come. The Stirling Cooper mode epitomised the boutique movement that was in full swing at the time, relaying designs toward the trend-setting, hot, suave, kooky and period styles that were flying off the shelves such as Mr Freedom, Bus Stop, City Lights, Erica Budd and I am sure many more boutique personalities of the time.
This little dress is a wonderfully white, folky gorgeousness. I love the contrast of the purple, red and blue floral embellished ribbon trim as the colours just pop against the bright white backdrop of this lovely frock. Dainty shoulder straps and a tired full flowing skirt, indulge the sassy and rather cheeky peekaboo side ties. Such a simple and yet high impact design. A perfect dress for glowing summer evenings where you want to show a subtle glimpse of tawny flesh.
