Marilyn Monroe...Pucci dress
Made from a lycra knit fabric in an a dusky mauve colour. Wonderfully stretchy and comfortable. A classic boatneck style long sleeve dress with a tie belt. The dress doesn't have a zip, you just pull it on like a jumper. A very simple design but looks fantastic on and can be worn as a casual day dress as well as wearing out in the evening.
Marilyn collected Pucci items in multiples; if she didn’t have a dress in every colour, she certainly had one in every other shade. She favoured a palette of flesh tones, of leafy greens or of shocking pinks and mauve's with occasional excursions into deep blues. Unlike her ‘working’ daytime wardrobe, which was predominantly black, these were clothes for Marilyn to play in, and by the beginning of the sixties had replaced the natural coloured chambrays, the capri pants and matching shirts she had worn throughout the mid to late fifties. Looking at Marilyn’s Pucci wardrobe today, it is astonishing how contemporary it seems; the feather light dresses cut as simply as T-shirts; the silk shirts in brilliant coloured jewel prints, designed to be worn, as Marilyn did with simple white pants or with jeans, are of today, not of yesterday. It is said that this was one of her favourite dresses and was buried in it.
