Vintage mid- to late 1980s silk blouse from Emanuel Ungaro features two of his trademarks–a lavish floral print, and a draped, ultra-feminine silhouette.

The print showcases the designer’s flair for working unexpected color combinations into lush floral harmonies: Delft blue, fuchsia, and ochre roses mix with emerald leaves and a scattering of pink or yellow buttercups. Ivory highlights soften and give depth to the flowers, which seem to explode with subdued vibrance against the ink black ground.

The blouse’s strong shoulders and tapered gigot sleeves—puffed at the shoulder seam, zippered snug at the wrist—balance with its side-draped ruching and flirty, attached scarf tie. The self-fabric shoulder pads are good-sized but masterfully worked into the silhouette.

Asymmetrical folds fall softly from the right shoulder to gather at the left waist, where they line up with the waist-to-underarm zipper nestled there. Emphasizing the blouse’s waist-anchored draping, a diagonal of self-piping runs from the loop-and-button fastening at the keyhole-like neck opening to the top of the zipper.

Label reads: “Ungaro Parallele Paris”. Ungaro, who apprenticed for Cristobal Balenciaga, opened his fashion house in 1965, and launched his signature ready-to-wear label Ungaro Parallele in 1968. He continued to design his couture collections until retiring in 2005.

Tag size is a vintage 8. Exact measurements are: Bust 34” shoulders 16”, sleeves 21”, waist 26”, shoulder to hem 18” and center back to hem 19”.

Excellent condition.
