1960s Emilio Pucci Printed Pink Top, Sash & Cropped Pant Set
The print on this top and pant set is classic Pucci and I love the mix of pinks that are used to make up that print. The top and pant are both made from a beautiful and light silk and both pieces are lined in a pale pink silk chiffon. Even lined the pieces weigh virtually nothing and drape beautifully on the body. This light weight silk is a very difficult fabric to deal with and it is a testament to his atelier that the workmanship on this set is so finely done , especially when you realize it is almost entirely done by hand. The pants are cut with a more fitted hip with the wide cut legs falling from a softly gathered seam that runs around the lower hip. They are slightly cropped and this gives them the look of a skirt until you move and then you have the ease and comfort of a pant. The top slips on to wear and has a loose and easy cut and wide straps that feature the same border print he uses on the hem of both the pants and top. A wide bight pink silk sash allows you to cinch in the waist. The colors are fabulous and it is so versatile since you can wear it together as a full set or as separates mixed with other pieces in your wardrobe. Excellent condition
Both pieces are fully lined in a pink silk chiffon. The top slips on to wear and the pants close with a hand set painted metal zipper. All the edges are finished by hand. The sash is also in excellent condition.
