1960s Emilio Pucci Feather Print Off Shoulder Silk Jersey Dress

The cut of this dress is not typical of Emilio Pucci's work but I wish it was as its very feminine and flattering. It is cut loose and easy through the bodice with ties at the neck that you can tie at the front or wrap and cross up and around the neck. Depending on how you tie it you can wear it to sit off the shoulder, or more on top of the shoulder. The silk jersey it is made of adds to its allure and give it the easy drape you see. This was a favored fabric of Pucci and the colors of his self-designed prints really pop against them. On this dress the print is especially pretty with soft, huge feathers curling over the dress and against each other, covering the surface. The sleeves are cut to be very full and each balloons out over its cuff. The waist is defined by piping but is cut to be loose and easy and the piping suggests, rather than defines the waist. It is simple in cut and fabrication, but striking because if the print with a dash of sensuality because of the bare shoulders. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes at the back with a hidden set, painted metal zipper. The ties at the neck can be worn as you wish. Each cuff closes with hidden set fabric covered snaps. Tagged a vintage Pucci 12. The fabric does have stretch
