Marilyn Monroe Pucci Top
About the Top
Made in a lime green lycra jersey and comes with a corded tassel belt. The fit of this top is relaxed without being baggy and sits about hip length. The sleeves are quite loose and long. A very comfortable blouse which looks great with cigarette pants and a bullet bra but can equally be worn with a modern bra for an equally effective look. £55
Marilyn collected Pucci items in multiples; if she didn’t have a dress in every color, 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 yesterday.
