Emilio Pucci was famous for his ground-breaking designs that featured sensual, free-flowing lines that followed the natural curves of the body. His stretch silk and cotton jerseys were weightless, unlined, and wrinkle-proof - precursors for a modern, travel-friendly wardrobe that captivated a new generation of modern, active women. Prior to the 1960s, Pucci's worked under his earlier company,  Emilio of Capri. The Emilio Pucci label that we all know and love commenced in the early 1960s with his signature look evolving into the ultimate status symbol of the decade.

 

Condition 

Excellent. No notable flaws that I can see, a couple of faint pin dot marks on the skirt hardly noticeable.

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws will be highlighted.

 

Comment 

Emilio Pucci was the king of textile innovative and beautiful prints during the 1960's. His designs revolutionized the world of fashion and developed a cult following that was almost unheard of at the time. Today, original Pucci prints from the beginning of his career are hard-to-find and highly collectible. This stunning multi-coloured print silk-jersey dress is a perfect example of his genius.
