Gorgeous 1960s Emilio Pucci Velvet Dress in Ocean Blues & Classic Circle Print
This gorgeous Emilio Pucci dress is made from one of his signature velvet fabrics. These velvet pieces hold color especially well and they have a rich decadent feel to them that is hard to beat with their modern counterparts. His velvet pieces are among my personal favourites and this little dress is exceptional. The prints that he used for these during this time period were all created by Emilio himself. They then underwent a process that transferred them perfectly to the velvets that he used. For this dress you can see how the print is purposefully laid out to highlight the cut of the dress. He chose a rich colour palette of blues for the dress and it is instantly identifiable as a Pucci. The colors all pop against each other beautifully. The dress is kept simple in its cut so that the colours can shine. It is cut in that classic sixties mod shape that is easy to wear. The bodice skims over the bust with a high neck. From there the dress falls on an angle outwards to the hem. Down each wide cut sleeve is a panel of one of his signature borders that creates a contrast to the main print. This same border treatment circles the hem, the cuffs, runs across the shoulder and around the neck. Another double line of it runs up the back of the dress. I love the burst of colour and print on the front of the dress and that great circular medallion feeling pattern that runs over the entire front. The fabric and pattern would have had to have been laid out in advance to create this look. This is something you don't see as often in modern pieces because it adds to the costs of production. It's really good. Excellent condition
