1960s Emilio Pucci Prettiest Pink Floral Print & Black Silk Jersey Dress
This Emilio Pucci dress is particularly wonderful with its pretty pink & coral floral print that pops off of the black silk jersey base. The dress is made out of one of his classic silk jerseys that has that gorgeous floral pattern screened onto the fabric. At this point in the Pucci history, Emilio himself would have been creating the prints for his dresses so it is truly like wearing art. The dress has an easy to wear cut to it. The bodice skims over the bust and waist, curves over the hips and ends in a simple cut skirt. As with all his best pieces, his use of a contrasting border highlights both the cut and line of the dress. The neckline, cuffs and hem are all accented by a contrasting white and floral border. A border band of that same print also runs down the center back of the dress. The sleeves are cut long with a slight bit of volume over the cuffs. This is a classic Pucci silhouette that is instantly recognizable and very sexy once on an actual body despite not being super form fitting and clingy. I love all the contrasting print panels that give the cut visual definition and the colors all pop against each other beautifully. Excellent condition.
