From the late 60s or early 70s, this is a great piece of fashion history that is timelessly stylish. From the fine label Bleeker Street, under Jonathan Logan. From 1966 onward, Jonathan Logan was one of the most popular dress designers in the US. Bleeker Street was a label from '66-'74 created for the brand's high-fashion Carnaby Street boutique in the Soho district of London, known mainly for its important role in 1960s fashion.* This beautiful hippie maxi features adjustable tie spaghetti straps, a stretchy elastic bodice with gathered top, and the neatest color palette in unfaded tones of light lemon yellow, gold, deep sky blue, vermilion, white, and copper. Fantastic stripey pattern is so authentically 60s. Keep the swinging 60s alive in this amazing and perfectly preserved piece.

*For those unfamiliar with Carnaby Street, it was established by fashion entrepreneur John Stephen and became the trendiest place in England for buying mod and hippie clothing in the 1960s. Mostly famous for its independent designer boutiques, it also featured underground music bars and the lengendary Marquee Club nearby, and became known as a hangout for popular musicians including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who. It drew models, bohemians, actors and hipsters in bellbottoms and psychedelic colors and became a global symbol of youth counterculture. There are movies and songs that immortalize the location. It was considered one of the coolest places associated with Swinging London. In 1966, Time magazine even stated "Perhaps nothing illustrates the new swinging London better than narrow, three-block-long Carnaby Street, which is crammed with a cluster of the 'gear' boutiques where the girls and boys buy each other clothing."
