1981 Emanuel Ungaro Yellow Floral Printed Silk Ribbon Chiffon Ascot Top

This fabulous little Ungaro top has a very pretty and romantic feel to it. It is made from a scarf weight silk that has a striped silk satin ribbon detailing worked directly into and throughout the fabric. Between the stripes, the fabric is semi-sheer which gives it light and whimsical feel. The body of the top is cut loose and easy. The sleeves are wonderful and each is cut with a slight fullness above the ruffle finished cuffs. This ruffle detail at the end of each sleeve perfectly ties in and picks up the same ruffle detailing on the high set collar. There is also an attached tie at the collar that is made from the same silk. This combination of a high ruffle and a tie gives the top a touch of high glamour. Flat, glossy yellow buttons are the perfect finishing touch. Excellent condition.

Unlined and buttons down the front. Each cuff buttons to close.
