OOAK 2015 Peter Dundas for Pucci Beaded Press Sample Dress

About

This dress is exceptional and a unique piece as it is a press sample and as far as I have been able to ascertain was never put into production. To the best of my knowledge and my client's, there is not another one out there. This sometimes happens as sample are made for the runway presentation and then are edited out of the final cut, or a designer decided to go in a slightly different example. The closest piece I see that was produced was the dress worn by Miranda Kerr. The dress here is so very intricate and so very sexual in feel, that it is easy to see why the final cost and the niche amount of women who would have been able to wear it, would have made it prohibitive to produce. Peter's beaded dresses while at Pucci often retailed for well over $10,000 and this would have easily fallen in that elite group. The dress is a short shift with its surface entirely hand beaded. Large plastic discs in green are surrounded by glass tube & ball beads, with green crystals prong set among them. Every inch of the dress is covered as a result. It is like a honey comb design and the intricacy and time needed to follow each of those individual segments is astounding. The neckline is a stunning halter that trails over the shoulders and meets mid-back. Each segment of the dress is suspended from the others with little ladders of bead embossed silk that leaves skin exposed between. This creates a plunge effect around the front and leave skin exposed down each side. It is absolutely incredible. The Karla Otto agency tag is attached on the care tag. Excellent condition Fully lined in a green silk and closes with a hidden set zipper set at the side back to follow a seam. Tagged a Pucci 36. Has the Karla Otto press sticker on the inner tag and a hand written number. Very heavy and cut tiny through the top of the bust. Note that due to the excessive beading and value this item will only be sold as a final sale item as to not incur potential wear and tear from excessive shipping back and forth. Bust: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 14.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 38" from top of dress to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML Reference Photo: Miranda Kerr in Pucci at the 2015 Warner Music Group Grammy celebration, Feb 8 2015.
