Recent Rochas Red Silk Backless Dress w Ruffle Detail at Low Back

This lovely Rochas dress still has its tags attached and is that perfect dress for when you want full impact mixed with a touch of feminine prettiness. It is made of a silk crepe de chine in a beautiful shade of red. This fabric choice gives it lightness but allows it to drape over the body and have a pretty flow to it. It is suspended from the shoulder by tiny little silk straps that meet the bodice at the front and cross over and hold the low dip at the back. There is a little gather at the bust and the seam curves up to meet that for a pretty line. The dress flows out from there to the floor, gradually widening as it goes. At the back, it dips very low and then again flows to the floor. This leave the upper part of you more bare but is very flattering in the way it skims over the body under that. Below this is a double row of ruffles made from the same fabric. I love that this gives a nod to the historical bustle but in a very fresh and modern way. It is cut super model long and the lightness of the silk gives it beautiful movement. Excellent condition with a note below

Unlined and closes with a hidden set zipper at the side. There is a smudge near the seam on one side of the bust and some grubbiness along the hem at the front mainly. It was new with tags so was not cleaned and I am sure these will come out for be so faint it won't matter. In person, the color is a little more a muted red then how it photoed. Tagged a modern 40
