Extraordinary 1960s Emilio Pucci Silk Jersey Intricate Swirl Print Dress
This is one of my favorites of all the Pucci prints. It is one you do not see as often but I love the intricacy of it. It is extra pretty when applied to the silk jersey that the dress is made of as the fabric take the color so very well and the drape of the fabric softens the feel of the dress even more. The cut of this dress is very feminine. The collar is gently scooped and cut wide across the neck and across the shoulders so you get a touch more skin showing then with a more typical collar. It skims over the bust and is taken in just under that with a wide band of fabric. From there the skirt falls to the floor, gently widening out as it nears the hem. Each sleeve is cut to be full and to balloon out over its cuff. The curves and swirls of the main print are contrasted by the secondary print that borders the collar, and cuffs. It is also used to define the empire waist and to finish the hem. At the back that same contrasting print is set in a wide panel that runs up the length of the dress. It is simple in cut and fabrication, but striking because if the print and with a dash of sensuality because of the bareness of the wide collar. I love it. Excellent condition
