Did you know the house of Pucci is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2022?
Today is also Emilio Pucci’s birthday, so to celebrate, I’m sharing some publication news:
I’m pleased to announce that I’m among the contributors to the Spring 2022 issue of DRESS: The Journal of the Costume Society of America. My piece is called “Pucci (Paper) Patterns, 1956–73,” and it’s about Pucci’s licensed couturier patterns for Vogue and McCall’s.
DRESS has both print and digital editions. (Preview the Spring issue here.) DRESS 48.1 is out now and available to order from Routledge / Taylor & Francis.
From Diana Vreeland’s Vogue, a mid-1960s Franco Rubartelli editorial featuring Françoise Rubartelli in two white jumpsuits made with Vogue patterns — or as Vogue puts it, “Two jumpsuit patterns with lean moon-shot lines, cut for action in pale moon-coloured jersey.”
I previously featured this Young Fashionables hooded jumpsuit in my Jill Kennington post, but American Vogue made it first, in Heller double-knit Celanese acetate:
The Courrèges-inspired two-piece jumpsuit uses two patterns for a tunic and custom-fit pants, both made up in Wamsutta Orlon double-knit jersey.
