Prettiest 1960s Emilio Pucci Original Pink Silk Jersey Dress w Lattice Flower & Leaf Print
I am always thrilled to find a really great Emilio Pucci piece. The truly great ones from the labels earlier years are getting very hard to find and this one is fabulous. By the 1960s, the time period that this dress is from, Pucci was a world-wide phenomenon. Hollywood stars like Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and even Jackie Kennedy were huge fans. For all of the many attempts since to catapult the label back to the height of its glory, the days when Emilio himself oversaw the label and designed the prints will always be the most special to me.
The colors on this Pucci dress are gorgeous. The dress is made from his signature silk jersey and this fabric choice held the colour beautifully. The colours are still crisp and bright. The pattern is a this fabulous combination of a pink for the backdrop and then a lattice design is laid over that with trailing, vining leaves and flowers covering the entire surface. The silk jersey is light in weight and easy to wear as it has a touch of movement to it so that it skims over the body easily. The dress buttons down the front to the slightly dropped waist and the skirt falls below that in a widening out a bit to the hem. The button front allows you to open it as low as you wish for some skin to show or do it up right to the the little pointed collar. His signature contrasting border highlights the cut and design of the dress. He has used down the front behind the buttons, for the collar, cuffs and around the hem. You could add a belt for more shape if you wished or wear it more loose and easy. The entire dress weighs ounces and is wonderfully bright and happy. It is a beautiful Pucci. Excellent condition with one small note below
