1960s Silk Jersey Pink Floral Print on Black Pucci Dress
This fabulous little Emilio Pucci dress is particularly wonderful with its pretty pink floral print and extremely wearable vintage sizing. It is constructed from one of his signature silk jerseys with a bright floral pattern in a mix of pinks and corals that just pop off the black backdrop. The bodice skims over the bust to the dropped seam of the waist and the waist and this then tops a sleek and simple skirt. As with all his best pieces the use of a contrasting border only adds to the deigns and this one is no exception. The scooped neckline, cuffs and hem are all accented by a contrasting border and a bold band of that same print also runs down the back top of the dress. The sleeves are left simple and slim cut with a slight bit of volume over each cuff. This is a classic Pucci silhouette that is instantly recognizable and very sexy despite it not being super form fitting. I love all the contrasting print panels that give the cut visual definition and the colors all pop against each other beautifully. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips on to wear with a handset fine metal zipper at the back. Extensive hand work on the interior. The fabric has stretch if you need it. Tagged a vintage Pucci 14 but these run small compared to modern sizing so please make sure to check the measurements below
