EMILIO PUCCI WOMEN SPRING 2015 – BACK TO THE 70’S: Love everything about this collection, the silhouette, the colors, the prints, the vibe. Definitely the 70’s are a source of good inspiration, Peter Dundas is getting BETTER and BETTER!
Happy and carefree, saturated in the mood-enhancing colors of the sunset. Peter Dundas presents an Emilio Pucci collection showered in the optimism of summer. Inspired by and dedicated to the girls he loves both today and from past eras, Dundas’ clothes slide on with an easy insouciance, yet radiate with major impact.
1970’s music poster art spins the prints and patterns, creating a slight psychedelic vibe. Tie dyes stream down filmy chiffon dresses, while patterns of Positano pottery have been knitted into terrycloth tunics. Crochet is reinterpreted with intricated bead work embroideries on mini or maxi dresses. The Lance spearhead print, fresh from the Pucci archives, is newly colored and engineered in jersey, gauze or cotton voiles.
The mood may be mellow but the workmanship is dizzyingly intricate. Cut crystal embroideries echo the prints and crack across tops or dresses like shards of glass. Leather has been worked into chain mail configurations, punched with studs and trimmed in thick tufts of shaved leather fringe. Intricate threadwork and silver cabochons create vibrant Pucci florals that crawl over suede coats, cotton blouses or crisp guipure macramé dresses.
Casting for the show included supermodel Naomi Campbell, It Girl Kendall Jenner and Mariacarla Boscono—who closed the show in a colorful silk number that draped to the floor.
