Decade: 1960s Vintage Type: True Vintage
Look: Mod/GoGo Material: Wool
Size: 10 Brand: Slic Wear
Main Colour: Black
An exquisite and exceptional original vintage 1960's top/mini dress/trouser suit in black 100% virgin wool embellished with blue and midnight blue glass stone beads and diamantes.  Made in British Empire Hong Kong this unique outfit comprises:

  1. Matching top to the trousers (or possibly a mini dress but you would have to wear black tights and be very daring to wear as a mini dress on it's own - see measurements for fit and length), black 100% wool and fully lined in what feels like silk (no label to specify the lining material).  The collar of the top is heavily embellished with blue claw set, facet cut, glass stone diamantes and midnight blue beads.  This embellishment goes all around the collar. The bodice is then similarly decorated with blue beads to the front and the front of the dress is randomly decorated with further beads and claw set, facet cut, glass stone diamantes in blue.  Finally the hem of the dress is heavily embellished to match the collar.  The dress/top has a zip closure which goes two thirds of the way down the back and the zip is concealed.  The collar fastens with two hooks.  
  2. Trousers - these are full length (again see the measurements below) and straight legged (refer to measurements) with a cut away detail to the hem and with heavy jewel embellishment to match the top.  Zip closure to the hip with a hook and popper to secure.  The hook seems to be flexible or stretch for a comfortable fit.  The trousers are lined in black silk or satin to match the top.
Both top and trousers are labelled '100% virgin wool, Slic-Wear, Made in British Empire Hong Kong'.  The size label reads '38'.  The quality of these items is exceptional and they would have been very expensive when originally bought.  The kind of outfit you would see on a Bond girl in one of the original movies perhaps.


Approximately a UK size 10 and fits a model of that size, although as the item is knitted there is some stretch (label reads '38' this may be a European size reference but see the country of origin above).  Approximate measurements are: Dress: armpit to armpit 18" (46) which is a bust size of 36" (92cm), shoulder to shoulder 15" (38cm), length 30" (76cm) from top of collar to hem; approximate hip measurement (laid flat, edge to edge) is 18" which is 36" doubled up, (46cm); Trousers: length 38.5" (88cm) - this is the waist to hem measurement and so outside leg, the inside leg measurement is 28.5" (72.5cm), waist 28" (71cm), width of trouser leg at bottom (just above the cut out) 9" (23cm); hip is 19.5" which is 39" doubled up(48cm)  These measurements were taken edge to edge, externally and so there is some flexibility as to fit according to individual taste as to snugness of fit.

As above.


As above.




Good used vintage condition - this outfit has been worn but must have been very well cared for and stored.  It is not perfect but close examination has only revealed - 3 very small areas on the dress (back, front and side) where the knitted wool has pulled/snagged/worn and one of them is a very small hole.  It is not known what this minor damage is but they are difficult to see because the material is black and very likely easily repaired although the outfit can be worn perfectly well as it is.  There are two similar small areas to the back and bottom of the trousers (about 2cm) but again difficult to see immediately.  Remember this is a wool item that was made 50 odd years ago and considering that it is in good condition.
