Runway Spring 2013 Emilio Pucci by Peter Dundas Look 41 White Silk Halter Dress w Pockets

Vogue said of the Spring 2013 Emilio Pucci presentation; "When Peter Dundas inherited this historic Florentine house—famous since the 1960s for its kaleidoscopic prints—he made reworked archival patterns a major part of his story line. Last season and this one, though, he's started inching away from them. These days, the label is just as well known for Dundas' confident, louche brand of glamour as it once was for its founder's graphic swirls and geometries." Beyond this collection had many solid pieces as well including this dress who's twin was look 41 of the show. It was one of three white dresses that close the show before the final red look. It's a gorgeous dress it might even make an amazing wedding dress for the bride looking for a non-traditional choice or as an alternative dress in a more extended wedding celebration. And of course it could also be worn to any event.

The dress is made out of a stunning light silk that is light in weight but just heavy enough to keep the structure. It is very close to a true white. It is so simple in it's cut but is so chic and elegant once it is on the body. It feels very much like a Peter Dundas piece. The front neckline is done in a halter style with the upper part above the bust line finished an a white netting that has a secondary abstract print work through it. This allows you to see the skin underneath. The front is gathered over the breasts almost like a bandeau and seamed in the center. Under that is an open cut out for a bit more skin to show. The dress curves in to follow the waist under that and and skims over the hips. The skirt falls to the floor and widens out quite a bit as it nears the hem. This gives the dress incredible movement when you walk and you get a sense of that in the runway video. I love the loose slightly draped pockets that sit on each hip. The back is mostly open with a criss cross of straps and an open cut out between the waist and the back strap. Decorative frog knots sit at he low waist fort added detail. Once on this fits and hugs your curves in the best possible way. It come with its original tags attached. Excellent condition

The dress is fully lined through the bodice and the skirt is unlined. It closes at the side with a hidden set zipper. Light boni9ng and padding through the bodice. Tagged a modern Pucci IT42, FR38, US8, UK10. Because the upper body is lined and padded when it is off the body it feels like the fabric is a touch darker as it is completely opaque. Once on its fine and the lining is needed
