EMILIO PUCCI c. 1980 Evening Dress with Swarovski Crystals XXS-XS
A spectacular Emilio Pucci couture evening dress from c. 1980. The dress made from a printed silk organza with "Emilio" signature; the colors are various shades of dark brown and silver gray as well as black. The dress is most opulently embroidered with sparkling Swarovski crystals and sequins, all done by hand. The shoulder straps and seams are entirely encrusted. The dress features a slim cut and closes with a side zipper and a metal hook & eye. The left shoulder strap is fastened with two snap buttons which once opened make dressing easier. The bodice is 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, this dress seems to date back to circa 1980 and belongs to Emilio Pucci's masterworks without doubt - a very rare and unique piece.
Excellent. Very few (all in all maybe seven or eight) missing crystals and light stress to the fabric where they used to be attached. The sequins seem fully present and intact.
