Prettiest 1960s Emilio Pucci Pink & Yellow Print on Peach Silk Chiffon Ruffled Off Shoulder Dress
I am always thrilled to find a really great Emilio Pucci piece. The truly great ones are getting very hard to find and this one is exceptional. 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. This dress is gorgeous.
This is one of the prettiest Pucci dresses I have ever had in the shop. It is very unusual to find one that sits off the shoulders like this one does and I love it. It is done in a gorgeous combination of a pink and yellow print that is worked onto a soft pastel peach backdrop. In person the overall effect is a little softer and more pastel feeling then how it photoed. These colors are combined into a soft and romantic floral design that sweeps over the entire dress. As is typical in a Pucci dress, he has used bands of a different printed silk to define each section of the dress. On this dress these borders are pretty little curving flourishes rather than the typical geometric print that his borders are usually finished with. This adds to the soft and feminine feel it has. The cut is very flattering. It sits off the shoulders so that your shoulders are left bare. A band of the border runs all the way around and the back dips into a very subtle V. Under the neckline border is a ruffle that falls over your arms and across the back and bust. I love this because when you move it has a gentle movement that just is beautiful. It is cut to skim over the body and with just a suggestion of a waist. From there the skirt flares out to the floor gradually widening out quite a bit as it nears the hem. There are yards and yards of silk in it. I love how it is all cut on the bias so the dress has the most incredible movement and fullness as it swirls around you. It is very feminine but sexy at the same time. I absolutely love it. Excellent condition with one small note below
