Vintage 1990s Black Lace Corset Top - Bellville Sassoon by Lorcan Mullany - Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful black lace top made by British fashion house Bellville Sassoon. The label reads “Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany”, so this piece would date to 1987 or later as that is the year that Lorcan Mullany became involved in the Bellville Sassoon business. The top is made in a corset style, complete with black satin lacing at the center front. It has a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves and does up the back with a nylon zipper. It is lined in a flesh coloured rayon taffeta - the sleeves are unlined. The lace has a silver foil thread running through it, which gives the lace a shimmery appearance.
Retailer’s label: Fait Specialement Pour Ingrid on Greene. (Made Specially for Ingrid on Greene). This was a high end boutique in a wealthy section of Montreal.
