Rare 1960s Emilio Pucci Terry Cloth Pale Purple & Green Print Playsuit

The Pucci playsuit is one of those iconic vintage items that is synonymous with the sixties and seventies and that carefree, jet set life that Emilio Pucci and his clients often lived. This one, made out of a printed terry cloth, is particularly rare. These are very hard to find as most were worn them extensively and most did not survive intact and in such great condition. Variations of terrycloth pieces were heavily featured in the display at the Fondazione Emilio Pucci, Palaxxo Pucci, in Florence. There, they were displayed and encased under glass so that you could see then from every angle and each felt like a sculpture. This example of a playsuit is in wonderful condition and the colors are still bright and true.

It is made out of a terry cloth, toweling velvet and is a stunning example of Pucci's work during this time period. It is an all in one piece with short sleeves and built in shorts. The print is a gorgeous design that combines curving shapes, angled geometric and little pops of stylized flowers. The colors that he used mixes pale green, purple, turquoise and white.The front neckline is cut into a V with a bordered edge to define it. It is cut loose through the body to glide over your curves and then ends in short shorts. I love the contrasting borders around the shorts that balance out the one at the neckline. It is a joy to look at from every angle and combines sexy with that girl-next-door innocence feel perfectly. The fabric is signed throughout. These are hard to come by and a fantastic collector piece. Excellent condition

Unlined with closes with a back painted metal zipper. The inside is clean with overall mild yellowing to the white interior. Other then the minor discoloration in the interior it appears to have worn very little from the outside. Note that this photoed as deeper then how the colors are in real life - it is much more a pastel feeling purple and green and the terry cloth fabric softens the color even more.
