1960's Nina Ricci Dark-Brown & Ivory White Silk Evening Gown & Cape

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The French fashion house Nina Ricci, known for its feminine, ladylike clothing, has long been the go-to for Parisian chic. Elegant Frenchwomen and their daughters streamed steadily through the doors of Maison Ricci, seeking debutante dresses, party frocks and wedding trousseaus distinguished by fine details and luxurious fabrics. To achieve her figure-flattering cuts, the seasoned dressmaker draped on a live mannequin, pinning and snipping with a couturier's care. This breathtaking silk evening gown and cape is a perfect example of this brand's genius. The bodice is kept simple, sleeveless with a low-cut plunging backside. The skirt is attached to the waist by tiny, fine gathers which give the skirt it's wonderful fullness. It cascades to the ground with yard of fabric from that perfect nipped in waist. The hooded cape is a wonderful dramatic additional which feels incredible modern. I totally see this gliding down the red carpet.
