c1966 Black Silk Emilio Pucci Plunged Jumpsuit
Emilio Pucci did not always design pieces in his signature prints. Every once in a while he would throw in a solid color or metallic, less so as time passed and his prints become his bread and butter, but in the earlier days you did see solid colored garments. This one is a version of the documented 1966 jumpsuit found on page 324 of the book "Pucci" published by Taschen. The book version was done in a metallic fabric but here we see him play with two textures of black - one side is a matte silk and the other a glossier silk satin - and this one also has sleeves which adds a little more balance to offset those wide legs. The book captions describes this as the "Evening 'Chiardluna' palazzo pajama". The bodice and back plunge dramatically to the waist but are cut so that you can move freely without fear of sudden exposure. The sleeves are long and slim in contrast tot he pant legs. At first they appear to be a wide, full length skirt, this illusion helped along by a wide inverted pleat that runs down each leg. But underneath there are cleverly constructed very side pant legs making it very easy to move about in. So chic and sexy. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a fine black tissue silk and closes with a hand set, back painted metal zipper. Tagged a vintage Pucci 10 but please check actual measurements. hand finishes. Note that the zipper "sticks" a little bit near the waist seam but it is original to the pieces and does fully function so I chose to leave it. It just needs a little extra care near that area when closing.
