F/W 2014 Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci Runway Printed Jersey Top
This top and print, from the 2014 Pucci runway, was shown on the runway in both Look 19 and Look 20 of the fall presentation. Even though it is a more recent piece, it is sure to become an important piece in terms of Peter Dundas' career. Style.com said that this was one of his best collections:
Over his five years at Emilio Pucci, Peter Dundas has soaked in the house's Italian jet-set heritage and turned the show into one of Milan's hot tickets. ...... Dundas tapped into his own history, and the result ranks up there with his best collections for Pucci.....Jersey was another house signature, but back in Emilio's day it never draped quite as fabulously.
It is a top, although the way it is cut you could probably get away with wearing it as a mirco-mini if you are brave enough. It is made out of a slinky, fine light weight, jersey with that fabulous, signature, Pucci print, inspired by the archives, covering its surface. It has a stretch banding around the waist that hugs it in under the loose and easy bodice. Cut outs circle the upper bust to giving a sexy glimpse of skin. These cut outs are connected by a gold chain that runs around the upper edge of the neckline and creates a tantalizing series of open slashes. The neckline is cut extra wide so it sits off the shoulder and the cut below is extremely loose and easy. The workmanship that has been put into it and the draping of the jersey is extraordinary and shows a high level of technique. This particular fabric is extremely hard to work with and the level of fit and draping that Dundas has achieved is wonderful. Never worn. Excellent condition
The lower banding is a double layer of the same printed jersey and the bodice is lined in an ivory jersey. The sleeves are unlined. It slips over the head to wear. Tagged a modern IT42, FR38, UK10 or 8US. The fabric does have stretch
