Today's inspiration comes from Nina Ricci. Jules Francois Crahay was the designer for Ricci in 1960 and his genius is evident in this cocktail length dress paired with a full length opera coat, both in an opulent Middle Eastern inspired silk. The coat is accented with black fox fur collar and cuffs. Silver shoes echo the silver threads in the fabric. Black kidskin gloves finish the look.
