1966 Emilio Pucci 100th Anniversary Monte Carlo Scarf
This is a rare Emilio Pucci scarf from 1966. It is titled, “Monte Carlo a Cent Ans” and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Monte Carlo. It features a triangular compass border print, four different compasses in each corner, and a circular print of the Monte Carlo landscape and Monte Carlo’s crest in the center. “Monte Carlo A Cent Ano” is printed at the bottom center. The scarf measures 35” x 34” and has a green Emilio Pucci tag sewn onto one of the back corners. The scarf has a few stains throughout which can be seen in the photos but is in overall good condition for its age.
“The highlight of this wonderful anniversary celebration took place on Friday, 27 May 1966 at 22.00, and was aptly called the Ball of the Century. In addition to being a 100th anniversary celebration, the Ball was also the most magnificent of the twentieth century in Monaco. All the guests were wearing eighteenth century clothing and only had eyes for the legendary appearance of the royal couple, with Princess Gracelooking more beautiful than ever.” - Monte Carlo Legend
