1960s Citrus Silk Emilio Pucci Shift Dress

What a beautiful Pucci dress done in one of his signature bright, citrus mixes colors and using one of his iconic angled prints screened onto a scarf weight silk. The bodice skims over the bust to the border trimmed, high waist line. Another border accents the V neck. This then tops a sleek and simple skirt and the sleeve, which are cut somewhat wide finish. This is a classic Pucci silhouette that is instantly recognizable and very sexy despite it not being super form fitting. I love the band at the high waist that gives it a bit of visual definition but still keeps the easy to wear cut. That band also runs down the back of the dress. The colors all pop against each other beautifully. The entire dress weighs ounces. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back hidden, painted metal zipper. There are a couple of very small storage spots on the back - one near the zipper and two near the seam of one shoulder. There is also a very very very discoloration under the waist on the front (super-size provided photo). I don't feel these detract at all but have taken that into account when pricing.
