Pucci Style Urban Chic

Remember this fabric?
It's an early knit from perhaps the late 60s if I had to guess.
Loomskill Inc. on the selvage.  I had a very small piece of it.

A rather dramatic abstract that reminds me of Emilio Pucci designs.
Pucci is a famous Italian designer whose heyday was in the 50s & 60s.

I chose to lay out this wrap top with the front edge lined up on the border.
Could Pucci have designed this fabric for Loomskill?  Hmmm...

Take a look at this vintage Pucci scarf and handbag
from Retroshop Vintage and Couture and you be the judge.

Well who knows?  Maybe Pucci designed this fabric...
or maybe Loomskill was "inspired" by Pucci.

Either way... this is how I picture it being worn (click to enlarge).  Note the vintage photo of the woman driving the convertible on the bag -- she's probably wearing a real Pucci scarf!  And for what it's worth, I picture this outfit on the new superintendent in our school district!  She's got style.

  1. You are so right about Greco wearing this! I'm always impressed by her outfits. Simple but so very nice!


Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
