1960s Emilio Pucci Scalloped Edge Tunic & Wide Pant Printed Velvet Set

I am obsessed with the velvet pieces that Pucci was creating in the 1960s and 1970s. The depth of color he could achieve with this fabric and the richness it creates is wonderful. Of course, among vintage collectors, his velvet pieces have always been one the most prized to find. This one is not perfect. It has some discoloration issues to the velvet in some parts but is otherwise strong and sturdy. I had it cleaned twice and I don't think it will get much better then this. I am listing it for what I paid for and the costs put into it so far. If you don't mind that your vintage is not entirely perfect this is a tremendous deal as these easy go for twice this or more if perfect.

This is a two piece set and each of the two pieces are equally strong whether they are worn together or as separates. The pants are flat fronted with a sleek and simple waist that does not have a waist band. He often would just finished the waist with the print giving it a finished look but keep it flat fitting and flattering. They zip to close at the side with a hand set, painted metal zipper. This sleek cut gives them a great fit and really allows the print that covers them to be shown off. The pants are cut quite wide and by the hem, each is full 28.5" around. The fabric choice holds their shape beautifully. The tunic that tops the pants slips on and zips to close at the side. It is sleeveless and I love how the top and bottom hem are finished in big looping curved half circle scallops. The print picks up the same print of the pants and it would have had to have been laid out onto the fabric deliberately to be able to achieve the cut and shape that you see. A technique all but foregone now as it adds so much extra cost. The colors in the velvet are fabulous. Both pieces have that classic Pucci print in bright pops of pink and turquoise against the black and ivory back drop. This is a very rare and wonderful set. Presents as good condition at first glance and is sound and sturdy but please read the full condition notes below.

The tunic is fully lined in an ivory silk and closes with a hand set, side painted metal zipper. The pants are lined in an ivory silky rayon and close with a side painted metal zipper. The interior lining in the pants is discolored at the interior seam between the legs and around the interior waist. The velvet looks grubby and dirty around the waist where hands would have touched it repeatedly and it has taken on a yellowish feel. I see a storage spot that mostly gets lost on the print on one upper leg. The shoulders of the tunic have that same grubby yellowish tint to them and the white parts under the arms have a slight yellowing to them. There are minor faint marks here and there. Please review all provided photos. t is otherwise sound and still in my opinion very wearable if you don't mind a set that is not perfect.
