Chado Ralph Rucci Shagreen Trimmed Dress
Ralph Rucci is known for his elegant
designs, exquisite construction, and
juxtaposition of fabrics. This clean
lined black wool crepe day into evening
dress is a perfect example.
The collarless dress has long sleeves
and a zipper at the center front. The
unusual use of shagreen, or stingray,
for the belt is striking in the
simplicity and elegance of the design.
The dress blouses slightly in the back.
It is fully lined and it appears unworn.
