Milan Fashion Week Highlight: Emilio Pucci
If there’s anything to say about Pucci’s newest collection, it’s that it was certainly a departure from the past. Gone were the hippy and gyspy influences that the line under Peter Dundas has pushed out season after season, replaced instead by a more sleek and minialistic collection.
Taking influence from that very famous 1975 picture of Vibeke Knudsen in YSL’s Le Smoking blazer Dundas, menswear tailoring with feminine twists played a huge role in the pieces. Sleek black dresses with tiny slits for Pucci standards, cut-outs and some mesh, cropped black waisted pants paired with a sheer top and a very Chanel-like jacket, a plain black loose fitting knee length dress paired with a double breasted crocidle skin jacket, a army green two piece paired with a bright purple trench the list could on and on but it seemed to scream one thing: Dundas was taking a more mature and dare I say a little demure approach to Fall 2013.
But Dundas also kept it a little Pucci so while it was more demure than past collections it was still sexy and a little gypsy. The dresses were still tight and there was ashiny leather skirt that looked a little dominatrix and Dundas still used some paisley print, knee high boots and some unexpected shots of colour (see that bright orange fur jacket).
Sexy but still kinda demure and mature, almost perfect don’t you think?
