One of Emilio Pucci's final stewardess uniforms for Braniff International Airlines before the design work passed on to Halston. I believe it was used from 1974-1976. "Pucci V and Pucci VI combined turquoise and green polyester solids with swirling Pucci Prints." (courtesy of braniffinternational.org)
A true rarity. A 1970's Pucci V/VI bodysuit and two toned jumper (I think this may actually be the in flight food service jumper?). Blue, green, black and purple swirling printed collared bodysuit/leotard with grey plastic button front and snap crotch. A bit of trivia from modcolors.com: "Originally, the Pucci V leotards were issued with signature fabric covered shank buttons. However, in 1976 the "Braniff International" label changed to "Louis Chaney of Dallas", and the beautiful shank buttons were replaced with flat translucent silver gray buttons. Each cuff bore only one button, rather than two. Perhaps it was decided the fabric buttons were too difficult or expensive to replace, as they did catch on everything, and thus deemed impractical. " Collar is stiffened. Classic "Emilio" signature worked through the print (though there are no other labels in the set). Coordinating blue and green polyester jumper with contrasting pockets. Jumper has a rear nylon zipper.
Size: Jumper has a 35" bust, 30" waist (not meant to be fitted), 39" hips. Approximately 32 1/2" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: The fabric of the jumper has a natural slub to it but there is one small pull that I think may not be original. There is a tiny hole near the left underarm (see arrow in close up photo). A VERY faint spot on right side chest. Faint spot on blue pocket and another on rear of blue panel. A little iron wear. The leotard has some pilling to the jersey of the sleeves (from normal repetitive wear). Small pull on rear of leotard.
