    Preowned Iconic 1971 Diana Crawshaw For Mr Freedom Baseball Suit
    It Is So Rare To Find A Mr Freedom Piece And This Is Perhaps The Most Coveted And Well Documented Of Them All. I Have Seen Similar Pieces Come Up For Auction But None In This Fine Of Condition And That Include The Original "modesty" Panel Under The Front Lacing Of The Jacket. It Is Made Of A Light And Comfortable Inky Black Velvet, Ironically The Fabric Of The Season Once Again, And Is Fashioned After The Traditional "baseball Suit" With Scarlet Patch Appliques At Elbow And On The Pant Legs. The Pants Themselves Are Fitted Around The Hip With A High Waist And Amazing Button Front. The Legs Are Cut To Lengthen And End In A Slight Flare With Cuffed Hems. The Jacket Is Iconic With Its Bright Yellow Lace Front And Cropped Fit. I Have Tied The Laces As Referenced In Many Of The Documented Photos But They Can Also Be Tied With The Laces Ending At The Top. It Seems That Both Versions Were Done Depending On The Whim Of The Stylist Or Photographer At The Time. Excellent, Museum Quality Condition.In An Article From Look-In Fashion Model Annual, 1971, From Which One Of The Reference Photos Was Taken, The Writer Said This Of The Mr Freedom Boutique: "it's A Remarkable Shop. The Price Tags Are Cardboard Fried Eggs. Inside, A Huge Fly Eight Or Nine Feet Long Slowly Flaps It's Wings Just Above Your Head And Further Inside A Chest-High Model Of A Shoe Looms Large In Metallic Mauve. There's An Armchair Made To Look Like A Huge Set Of False Teeth And Furniture The Shape And Colour Of Liquorice All-Sorts. There Are Beautiful Mr Freedom-Clad Assistants And A Wide-Grinning Teddy Boy Called 'arold. Not To Mention The Clothes. Mr Freedom Stocks An Ever Changing Shopful Of Vivid, Original Fashions, Each One More Outrageous Than The Last And Each Quite Different. There Are Fashions From The Thirties And Forties. There Are Drape Jackets And Blue Suede Shoes From The Teddy Boy Era, And Shorts And Sling Back Shoes Fit For Fifties Film Stars, Enamel Brooches, Sneakers, Platform Shoes, Sailor Suits, And A Whole Host Of Incredible Clothes That Could Have Only Come From The Seventies. And All The Time New Ideas Bring New Clothes. Mr Freedom Doesn't Follow Fashion, He Leads"Both Pieces Are In Excellent Condition With A Slight Patina To The Velvet At The Natural Creasing Areas. It Has Not Undergone Additional Cleaning As It Is In Clean Condition As Found And For Pieces Of This Importance And Rarity I Prefer Not To Undergo Any Unnecessary Cleaning. Unlined With The Velvet Having A Self Backing. The Pants Close At The Front With A Button Fly And The Jacket Laces To Close As Shown. There Are Slight "crease" Marks In The Velvet At The Parts That Most Move When On But This Is A Natural Effect Of Time And Normal Wear And I Don't Feel It Takes Away At All From The Rating Of Excellent. The Patina Adds To The Vintage Heritage And Splendor Of Such A Rare And Wonderful Piece.
