From the self-proclaimed "Fabulous Fake", the late Mr. Kenneth Jay Lane, we are pleased to offer this fabulous 1970's geometric / checkerboard pattern red, white & blue blouse. Internationally known for his highly sought after faux jewelry creations, I was surprised to find this blouse with his label on it. Bonwit Teller was the first establishment to sell his creative jewelry, but I have no idea when he collaborated with them to design clothing. I did find an ad (see below) for a scarf collection with Glentex - that's Mr. Lane in the ad, so young and handsome! - but the ad is not dated.
This blouse has the classic over-sized (4"!) pointed collar that was so popular during the Studio '54 / Disco era. It has six buttons (the one at the collar is smaller) as well as button cuffs and a flattering slim-fit design. The nautical color combination is so perfect for all things summertime! AND it's machine washable and wrinkle resistant, great for travel. Pair it with white denim super flare jeans, gold hoop earrings and some platform sandals and off you go . . .
