1980s Emanuel Ungaro Unusual Sleeve Purple Print Silk Top w Tie

This fabulous little Ungaro top has the most amazing sleeves and shoulders. The sleeves are cut in a 1980s version of the traditional 'Leg of Mutton' sleeve where the sleeve is very wide and full on the upper part of the arm and then it tapers down as it nears the wrist. Here this has been even more exaggerated and the lower half of the sleeve is finished with a zipper so that it can really fit the arm. This makes the fullness above the elbow even more dramatic. It is made from a scarf weight silk that has a abstract secondary detailing worked directly into and throughout the fabric. Over this are scattered dots in a multitude of colors. The body of the top is cut loose and easy as it falls from the strong, padded shoulders. I love the pleat work that runs down from each of those. The collar extends out to long ties in the same fabric at the neck. It's all drama and high eighties glamour. Excellent condition.

Unlined and buttons down the front. Each cuff zips to close. Strongly padded shoulders. The loose cut should fit a variety of sizes
