1960s Emilio Pucci Unusual Bright Floral & Black Print Silk Jersey Dress
We are huge Pucci fans around here and this one is a beauty. It is an unusual one in that it has a lot of black in the design, a color that you do not see used as often in his pieces. This is combined with a beautiful array of bright and vivid flowers that run over the entire dress to still give it that classic Pucci feel. It is an amazing mix of color and design. The print is screened onto a light silk jersey that feels wonderful once on the body. It has a simple silhouette and just slips on with a wide cut neckline that has no collar. Buttons run down the upper back and the cut is loose and easy. The bodice skims over the bust all the way to the hem in a soft sheath of jersey. It is a very simple cut that leaves the waist unfitted - though you could certainly cinch with a belt for more shape of you wished. This is a classic Pucci silhouette that is instantly recognizable and very sexy despite it not being super form fitting since the fabric drapes so wonderfully. Very easy to wear cut and super chic. The entire dress is light and comfortable when on and the silk jersey is very good quality. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips on to wear with buttons at the back neck. The fabric is signed throughout. It is tagged a vintage Pucci 14. The fabric does have some stretch. The top button was changed out at some point to a plain black button
