Vintage 1990s Naf Naf Paris Dress Colourful Cotton Off The Shoulder Style Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful vintage dress made by Naf Naf of Paris.  The piece dates either to the very late 1980s or early 1990s. Naf Naf marketed their fashion to a young demographic - 18 to 25 year olds - so, as per the times, this is bright and colourful and fun!  The dress has a stretchy blue, green and magenta pink knit band around its top that aids in securing the top being worn off the shoulder.  The cuffs of the sleeves are also in the same knit fabric.  The top of the dress is made of solid magenta pink cotton linen while the skirt of the dress is made of orange, lime green and magenta striped faille ribbed cotton.  The top of the dress is cut full so as to fit loosely and the sleeves are also cut full.  The skirt has some stretch to it, but is fitted, like a pencil skirt, and made in an above the knee length.  The upper back of the dress has an affixed Naf Naf label with a polka dot background.
