Pucci is the epitome of Jetset chic

May 31, 2018

 

Made of silk knit, bold geometric patterns in vibrant turquoise and pristine white, this long evening dress was worn by Californian, Sheila Shay. A devoted fan of Pucci, she was known to dress ‘head to toe’ in his designs: clothing, scarves, sunglassses, shoes. Perfect for the wealthy jet setters who enjoyed air travel to exotic and hot destinations, Pucci’s clothing was packed in every suitcase. Sheila passed away several years ago, but her family generously gifted The Charlotte Smith Fashion Collection with 6 of her Pucci dresses. This dress and Sheila’s story is included in my latest book, One Enchanted Evening, illustrated by Grant Cowan. This photo was taken by Brigitte Grant Photography.
