Nina Ricci Silk Voile Pink Paisley Print Ruffle Trim Dress, circa 1976
This wonderful pink silk voile dress is from the Nina Ricci Boutique ready to wear line. When hunting for a reference to date it by, I happened across a photo from 1976 that has a Ricci dress in a very similar print, color and ruffle trim finish. The Ricci atelier was launched in Paris in 1932, Ricci retired from designing in the early 1950s and then Jules Francois Crahay headed the design team until he left for Lanvin in 1963. That makes this dress land in the era of Gerard Pipart who took over from Crahay and stayed on with Ricci until 1998. This wonderful dress is made out of a fine silk voile, one of my favorite fabrics as it holds color exceptionally well and it is very light in weight but still has a touch of structure to it. This unique combination creates volume where it is required, without adding unnecessary bulk. The dress is very pretty & feminine and it is cut with a simple hostess dress feel to it which was a popular look for that time period. The bodice has a small ruffle finish around the V of the neck and is left with a touch of transparency through the upper shoulders, back and sleeve. The waist is seamed and under that the skirt billows out with light and airy fullness. The skirt is made of yards and yards of silk that drapes perfectly into place as it flows to the ground. The back of the skirt is cut just slightly longer then the front which gives it a pretty sweep. I love the little ruffle trim that sits at the end of each cuff and also details the waist and lower tier of the skirt, effectively tying together all the elements of the dress. It is very pretty and feminine. Excellent condition The dress is fully lined in a pink silk through the bodice and skirt and closes with a back painted metal & nylon zipper. Each sleeve zips to close.
