1980s Emanuel Ungaro Black and White Dot Printed Silk Top

I just love a great black dot on white print and this is what covers the surface of this wonderful Ungaro top. It is made from a scarf weight silk that is light and easy to wear. It also a secondary design woven into the silk that depicts little ocean fishing motifs - octopus, fish etc. The sleeves are cut with just a slight fullness above the cuffs. They are inset into the shoulder with gathers so are a touch fuller at the top. The body of the top is cut loose and easy as it falls from the padded shoulders. I love the high collar that is designed to stand up to frame the neck. It even has a little hidden silk covered snap that closes it off perfectly and holds it exactly in place. This all high eighties chic. Excellent condition with a very minor note below.

Unlined and buttons down the front. Each cuff buttons to close. Padded shoulders. The loose and easy fit should work on a range of sizes. Note that there is perhaps the very faintest feel of grubbiness to the collar and cuff areas but it is extremely faint. I am being very picky
