Iconic 1960s Emilio Pucci Pink Print Velvet Pant & Tunic/Dress Set
I am obsessed with the velvet pieces that Pucci was creating in the 1960s and 1970s. The depth of color he could achieve with this fabric and the richness it creates is wonderful. Of course, among vintage collectors, his velvets have always been one the most prized to find. This is a two piece set and each of the two pieces are equally strong whether they are worn together or as separates. The pants are flat fronted with a sleek and simple waist. They zip to close at the back with a hand set, painted metal zipper. This sleek cut gives them a great fit and really allows the print that covers them to be shown off. The pants are cut quite wide and by the hem, each is full 24" around. The fabric choice holds their shape beautifully. The tunic that tops the pants slips on and zips to close at the back. It is just long enough that you could get away with wearing it as a micro mini if you dared. I love the slightly cropped sleeves that have a wide cut to them, mimicking the cut of the pants. You can easily wear it on its own without anything under it or layer it over other pieces. The colors in the velvet are fabulous. Both pieces have that classic Pucci print in shades of pinks and purples and are finished with squares of color around the edges, all set on their sides to give you a diamond pattern. It looks to have never been worn. This is a very rare and wonderful set. Excellent condition with one small item to note below
The tunic/mini dress is fully lined in a white silky rayon and closes with a hand set, back painted metal zipper covered buttons at the front and cuffs. There are 6.5" slits running up each side of the tunic at the seam. The pants are lined in the same white silky rayon and close with a painted metal zipper at the back. The set looks to have never been worn but does have a small, faint area where the white has yellowed slightly on one part of the print at the back waist. I suspect it was not properly stored. I have photoed it and it is very minimal but mentioned for accuracy.
