Emilio Pucci was a popular fashion designer in the 1960s and known for his colorful geometric prints. Since has passing in 1992, the house has continued to use his inspiration to influence a new generation of fashion fans. Peter Dundas has been serving as the Creative Director of Emilio Pucci for five years. Since his start at the house, the Pucci woman has become more Bohemian, sexy, and bold. His choice of fabrics offer a unique perspective that keeps in line with the legacy of Pucci’s love of geometric textiles and color. His accessories offer a strong edge to his customer.
For Spring 2014, most of the runway looks were sent out with a large belt with large metal details on it. Dundas did what does best in creating mini dresses, jumpsuit, colorful printed tops and skirts paired with black tops and bottoms. Bold embroidery were designed on mini-dresses and sweaters. Geometric prints were mixed with tribal prints to offer bold looks. There were very wearable sportswear pieces including a sheer tank top with cropped black pant with a color-blocked blazer. Cutout and mid-drift bearing details on dresses and tops.
One of my favorite pieces was look 30, a long-sleeved rainbow mini-sequined dress with cut out details at the shoulders. It looked like a fun dress to go clubbing in, attend a concert or even attend a evening event perhaps a restaurant opening, movie premiere or date.
Dundas is providing new ways for woman to enjoy his designs at Pucci while also being true to the legacy and history of the brand. He is a designer that I continue to enjoy seeing where he will take the house. Keep it up Peter!
