Prettiest 1970s Bessi Light Purple & Pink Printed Silk Jersey Flared Pants

The Bessi company was launched in 1950 but it was not until 1968 that it started producing the printed pieces that the label is now associated with. Like Pucci he signed all his prints and created them himself. In terms of style, construction and quality, Bessi dresses were often on par with Pucci and Leonard, especially the ones from the late sixties to mid seventies. I have had a dress in this same print and I love seeing it on these as well

Some pieces just make you happy inside when you see them and these pants fit that bill. It is an absolutely gorgeous Bessi piece that is a super easy way to add a little instant pop of vintage into your wardrobe. They are made out of a silk jersey that glides and skims over your body perfectly. This fabric choice makes it extremely comfortable to wear and move in. The waist is banded with one of their signature contrasting prints. The legs are cut wide and straight with a slight flare when they reach the bottom. I love that the bottom is also finished with that band of contrasting print. The colour combination is fabulous. The base is a light purple-blue color with a pretty print done in little pops of different shade of pink. The floral and swirling design covers the entire surface of the pants to work together beautifully. Excellent condition

Unlined and they close with a side zipper and hook an eye at the waist. You could move the hook and eye and snap if needed. It looks like this has been done in the past. The fabric through the body of the pants does have some stretch this is reflected in the hip measurement below.
