It’s seems as if we are taking a trip back to 70s, with a more modern take, Emilio Pucci is no stranger to vibrant colors and psychedelic color schemes. The 70s is referred to as the era for form fitted trousers, fringe, crochet and beaded embellishments. So when Emillio Pucci, sent a 1970s inspired collection down the cat walk- it was no surprise, it’s safe to say that Peter Dundas’ does what he does better than anyone else. He certainly injects his collections with more sex appeal, keeping it more fashion forward. Dundas has made a contemporary Pucci signature as the Florentine house’s famous archival prints.
Ewers’ macramé dress was originally embroidered on tulle, later removed so that only the tracery of beads remained. The embroidered flowers and studs on a sharply tailored pink suede blazer also dazzled, and if the tie-dye tent dresses looked like the real thing, that’s because the prints were based on get-your-hands-dirty trial and error.
Slick tailoring provided a strong counterpoint to this season’s artisanship. A tangerine orange flared pantsuit worn with a burgundy crocheted tank will remain seared in our memory for some time. Ultimately, though, Dundas zeroed in on precisely what women come to Pucci for, perfectly fitted suits with the right balance of flare. The great finale was a set of printed gorgeous goddess dresses suspended from bejeweled metal bib necklaces.
