Marni Yellow Floral Cotton Ruched Dress Spring 2017 New W Tags


Fashion has always taken inspiration from art in one form or another. For Marni’s Spring 2017 collection, Avant Garde creative director Francesco Risso—in more ways than one—took a sculptural and decorative approach to create a collection that may very well redefine the concept of wearable art. Emblematic of Risso’s artistic vision, this incredible dress takes ruching to the next level.

As seen as look #11 on that season’s runway, this dress is done in a beautiful crisp and soft cotton. Featuring a print of small white and black flowers on a pastel yellow ground, the dress begins with an unusual ruched one-shoulder neckline that is secured with a cream rope tie at the neck.

The dramatic, oversized right sleeve is ruched down the front of the arm, finishing with a rope tie at the wrist. The sleeveless left side of the dress has a revealing slit which reaches from the neck to the waist, bringing a welcome lightness and risqué element to this unconventional masterpiece.

Falling from a gathered waist to a midi-length several inches below the knee, the skirt features more ruching that curves from below the right hip down the center front of the skirt, finishing in a rope tie at the incredible front fishtail hem.

The gathers at the waist and ruching at the neck and skirt create pleats throughout, giving this dress a sculptural, dynamic feel. Romantic and dramatic, this head-turning dress is the perfect choice for a spring wedding or special occasion.

In excellent condition, this 2017 Marni dress is unlined and has a rope tie closure at the neck. Purchased from Bergdorf Goodman, the dress appears to never have been worn and comes with the original tags still attached. High-quality pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
