1960s Emilio Pucci Pink & Black Floral Printed Silk Jersey Halter Dress w Open Back

Emilio Pucci is one of my favorite designers and every single dress is a work of art. His colors and prints are mixed with a masterful hand and when you get a good piece of Pucci, it is a piece that you can wear for a lifetime. This ones gorgeous. The print on it is floral pattern that is quite bold. The dress is made out of his signature lightweight silk jersey, a fabric that he preferred because of the way it moved and took color. It is screened with a custom print that combines big bright coral tinted red flowers with softer pink leaves. The print has been detailed with black around the edges and the base colour of the dress is an inky black. The pattern runs over the entire dress and gives it a tremendous pop if colour. At the front the neckline is done with two wide cut triangles of fabric that go up and around the neck to hook at the back. This leaves most of the back completely bare. The waist is defined with a broad band of silk jersey that has the same pattern but is set horizontally within stripes of colour. Under that the skirt flows to the floor gently widening out as it nears the hem. A second band of the print circles all the way around the hem. The entire dress weighs ounces and is just wonderful. Depending on your height this will fall to between  midi to full length. Excellent condition with one note below.

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch. Hand finished. Tagged a vintage Pucci 8 and is very tiny. For some reason the zipper is set into the dress backwards. The zipper pull is on the inside of the dress. I have reduced the dress to accommodate the cost of switching it back if that bothers you. An odd little quirk only found in vintage.
