Description

This gorgeous vibrant red dress by designer albert Nipon is a beautiful siloutte with signature nipon pleats, a mock turtleneck and mod 1960s shape. Lovely wool stretch knit with red silk lining in ideal condition with a zippered back and side pockets . Perfect for holiday cocktails, valentines day or just a night out on the town. Dress it up with some dangling earrings and heels or down with some flats and a funky belt.

" From the first, the Nipons' forte has been their fastidious attention to detail. Stripes in fabrics seem mysteriously to emerge from or disappear into the folds of the garment - a result of intricate tucking or pleating. The technique, which typically requires a yard or two more fabric than the average dress, has become the Nipons' trademark. ''Just as you see a suit with braid and say, 'That's a Chanel,' '' said Mr. Nipon, ''anyone who sees a dress with tucks says, 'That's a Nipon.' '' - NYTimes fashion Section 1981
