1960s Nina Ricci Metallic Gold Silver Silk Brocade Dress & Jacket Suit Set
$500 USD was $725 USD
This dress and jacket set is gorgeous. I love the fabric especially with its mix of silver and gold on black. It has taken a classic little cut dress and jacket set and turned it into the perfect chic little cocktail number. The cut of both the box jacket and little flared skirt dress is just so classic and timeless it could be from a runway today. The dress has a simple line to it that allows the fabric to take center stage. It is cut to hug the bodice and then the skirt flares out quite a bit as it nears the hem. This is all created by vertical seaming that runs from the waist seam down. The silk has gold and silver thread woven through it with a matte background. This gives it a wonderful texture and the fabric has just enough weight to help keep that structural shape but is still very light. I love the square from neckline and how the upper back is left bare at the back. The jacket is classic box cut that is detailed with the most enormous fabric covered buttons running down the front. It is simplicity mixed with a masterful seaming, cutting and extraordinary fabric. This is from the La Boutique line and is the modern day equivalent of a made to order piece in terms of quality. Excellent condition
The fabric is self-backed. The dress zips to close at the back and the jacket slips on and buttons at the front. Looks to have been worn very little if at all. Note that on the right sized girl the dress does close all the way up at the back - it was just too tiny on the dress form.
