F/W 2014 Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci Runway Jersey Mini Dress
This was one of the highlights of the 2014 Pucci runway, shown on Isabeli Fontana for Look 37 of the fall presentation. Even though it is a recent piece, it is sure to become an important piece in terms of Peter Dundas' career. Style.com said that this was one of his best collections:
Over his five years at Emilio Pucci, Peter Dundas has soaked in the house's Italian jet-set heritage and turned the show into one of Milan's hot tickets. ...... Dundas tapped into his own history, and the result ranks up there with his best collections for Pucci.....Jersey was another house signature, but back in Emilio's day it never draped quite as fabulously.
The dress is made out of a slinky, fine light weight, black jersey, cut to highlight and show off your figure. It also is micro mini length so shows miles of long bare legs. Cut outs circle the upper bust to giving a sexy glimpse of skin. These cut outs are connected by a gold chain that running around your upper bodice and creates a tantalizing series of open slashes. The workmanship that has been out into the dress and draping of the jersey is extraordinary and shows a high level of technique. This particular fabric is extremely hard to work with and the level of fit and draping that Dundas has achieved is wonderful. The original price on this dress was just over 4000+ taxes and I would bet that given the time to become a "true" piece of vintage that its value will far exceed that and what it is listed here for. New with original hang tag and never worn.
The skirt is a double layer of jersey that continues up through the bodice and the upper shoulders and sleeves are a then a single layer. It closes with a hidden set zipper at the side and hook and eye along the neck. Tagged a modern IT44, FR40, UK12 or 10US. The fabric does have stretch
