Emilio Pucci – Spring Summer 2015

Dec 02, 2014

All of Milan seems to be on a 1970s trip, but the fringe, gossamer goddess gowns, and hippie beading we've seen on the runways here have been in Peter Dundas' bag of tricks since the beginning at Emilio Pucci. On the penultimate day of fashion week, it's safe to say that he does them better than anyone.

One macramé dress from the collection 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. The finale series of printed goddess dresses was lush and gorgeous, the best of all suspended from bejeweled metal bib necklaces.
