The House of Nina Ricci was founded by Maria Ricci in Paris in 1932, later helped by her son Robert. Maria was 49 years old at the time, and after working at Raffin for so many years was itching to design her own creations. Madame Ricci designed gowns while Robert managed the business and finances. She worked with the fabrics directly on the mannequin to ensure they had the right shape once they were finished. Nina Ricci designs soon became known for their refined, romantic, always feminine feeling that Maria imparted to all of her collections.

The House of Nina Ricci grew rapidly throughout the thirties and their one-room maison de couture became 11 floors in 3 buildings, operations developed by WWII to include leather goods and fashion accessories.

In 1948 The house of Nina Ricci launched 'L'Air Du Temps'. The "bottle with the doves" was co-designed by Marc Lalique and Robert Ricci. The Lalique family manufactured bottles exclusively for the House of Ricci until the 1950s.
By the early 1950s Nina Ricci was nearing 70 years of age and slowly withdrew from an active role in design, choosing to just keep an eye on the house. Her son chose the new head designer in 1954, the Belgian Jules-Francois Crahay.  Nina Ricci died on 30 November 1970.

Vintage Clothing in Palm Springs: Fabulous Furs

Palm Springs Vintage Clothing: Tuesday Weld in Dyed Ermine
Palm Springs Vintage Clothing: Kim Novak in Fur
Palm Springs Vintage Clothing: Jackie Kennedy in Leopard
Nothing was more glamourous than a star in a fur coat.  The more exotic, the more of a femme fatale the celebrity was.  We have such a variety of vintage fur coats right now- especially important in Palm Springs, since the overnight temperatures are dipping into the 60s.....BRRRRRRR!

Some of my favorite images of celebrities are those of women in these fine furs.  Jackie Kennedy in Leopard, Tuesday Weld in a dyed ermine, Kim Novak in sable. Two of my favorite coats on racks right now are a vintage 1970's rabbit fur jacket with a hood and a wool 3/4 length coat with leopard trim.  If you feel badly about wearing vintage fur- keep in mind that even if the animal had lived out its natural life, it still would have died 40 or 50 years ago! 

Stop in at Deja Vu Vintage Finery in Palm Springs to be fully outfitted in vintage clothing from head to toe this season!
