Sweet Dreams

Olivier Theysens' ethereal collection for Nina Ricci Fall 2008 had an achingly beautiful quality that made us want to rummage around in some dream attic where fall leaves blow in through the open window and an old trunk opens to reveal soft, fragile dresses in tones of russet, sunset yellow and burnt orange. The perfect wardrobe of some faded, forgotten girl.

Thinking about that collection, we were instantly struck by the similar romantic feeling in these very cool dresses from Jean Muir. The deep green leather dress is from 1971 and was published in Sinty Stemp's book on Jean Muir. Size 4. The jersey dresses are from 1972. Size 6. The dove grey dress has tiny covered buttons. We also accessorized the russet dress with an incredible vintage Cerruti belt that we thought made for a darker romantic look.
