Psychedelic turtles! One of the most awesome 1960’s Italian silk jersey dresses from EMILIA BELLINI. Cowl neckline and 3/4 length sleeves. Comes with a matching tie belt. Olive green and yellow background with an array of psychedelic animals and vegetation (see last pictures) in fuchsia, blue, cerise and green. Finished seams inside. Labels read, “Made in Italy for Winona Hunt, Palm Beach”, “Florence, 100% Silk, Made in Italy” and a size “10” tag. Fabric is printed with the “Emilia Bellini” signature. This dress came from an estate with several Italian silk jersey dresses, including Pucci and item 5S868. Winona Hunt was a high-end Palm Beach boutique opened in 1959.
Condition: Checked inside and out for holes, stains, loose seams and wear. Clean with no noticeable wear. On close inspection there is a tiny snagged hole on the inside of the left sleeve and a small spot on the far left side of the chest right above the Bellini signature/on the fuchsia gazelle (see last pictures). Not noticeable, but there may be a couple tiny pulls as it is silk jersey. Skirt hem has been let down and a white lace was used for the hem tape.
