1980s Emanuel Ungaro Button Detailed Black Silk Dot Top w Tie Neck

This wonderful Ungaro top has a gorgeous design that is accented by little rows of buttons. These buttons run across the top of one shoulder, down the side of the waist and down each cuff. They are both a pretty detail and practical and they are cleverly placed to allow you to be able to get in and put of the top. The sleeves are cut in a modified version of the traditional 'Leg of Mutton' sleeve where the sleeve is very wide and full on the upper part of it and then tapers down as it nears the wrist. All of the buttons on the cuffs are functional, as are the others as well. The ones at the side of the waist help to really cinch it in and give it shape. On the shoulder they allow you to get into it and then once down up the neck can be further adjusted by the long attached ties. The shoulders have string padding for shape. The top is made from a scarf weight silk that has a gorgeous dot print covering its entire surface. It is all drama and high eighties glamour. Excellent condition.

Unlined and buttons at the side of the waist and one shoulder. Each cuff also buttons to close. Strongly padded shoulders and long attached silk tie. Tagged a vintage 6
