Chado Ralph Rucci Charcoal Cashmere and Silk Gown


Architectural volume makes this piece stand out - ultra soft and luxurious cashmere contrasts the stiff silk material of the skirt and wing-like cap sleeves, creating a dynamic and incredible piece. Contoured beautifully in the signature Chado style, this gown alternately wraps around the body and stands apart from it - the torso is form-fitting and shaped, while the skirt holds its own volume. The waist is lined with a tiny slip of olive for contrast. The pure cashmere and silk are of extremely high-quality, as with any Chado piece, and the craftsmanship is as always impeccable. Wear with the matching cashmere and silk wrap, listed separately.
