EMILIO PUCCI Vintage Couture Beaded Silk Evening Dress w/ Swarovski Crystals Size XXS
This spectacular Emilio Pucci couture evening gown is crafted from a printed silk organza in shades of black, dark brown and silver gray, with the iconic "Emilio" signature scattered throughout. The entire dress is encrusted with thousands and thousands of sparkling sequins and Swarovski crystals, all applied by hand, and has substantial weight. It features a slim cut and closes with a side zipper and a hook and eye. One shoulder strap has a detachable end that is fastened with three snap buttons and two sturdy metal hooks and eyes. Interior bodice with boning, waist stay and extra side zipper, lined in white silk. The skirt features a silky black lining and a light crinoline underneath. Made in Italy.
According to very similar dresses that are well documented in Taschen's Pucci book, the dress seems to date back to c. 1980. These crystal beaded evening dresses belong to the most elaborate, most valuable and rarest pieces of the house of Pucci.
Excellent. A few missing crystals and light stress to the fabric where they used to be attached. The sequins seem fully present and intact.
