This is a beautiful Emilio Pucci dress that is made out of one of his signature silk jerseys. This fabric held colour wonderfully and is part of the reason why even all these decades later that the dress is still so vibrant in feel. The dress is covered with one of his iconic prints that suggests bold florals. This one is a mix of several shades of ocean blues with grey and ivory pops. The dress is easy to wear. The bodice crosses over itself at the front and there is a little hidden set, silk covered snap to hold it perfectly in place. A contrasting border edges the neckline and runs down to the the slightly high set waist. The waist is also detailed with a printed border that curves around you and there is a panel of it that runs down the back of the skirt. The sleeves are long with a bit of volume over the cuffs and each wide cuff is a double panel of the border print. Under the waist the skirt falls in a sleek line with a slight A-line cut. There are hidden pickets along each hip. This is a classic Pucci silhouette and very sexy despite it not being super form fitting. The contrasting printed bits help to define the cut of the dress and draw the eye into a pretty silhouette. This mix of blues is always one of my favorite of his prints and the pattern is bold and beautiful. The dress appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes with a painted metal zipper at the side. Tagged a vintage Pucci 12. The fabric does have slight stretch. Each cuff closes with a newer looking series of hidden set snaps and there is a silk covered hidden snap at the bodice as described above. Hidden picket along each hip
