One of my friends families in Italy used to do many of the prints for Pucci. I once took a tour of the vast archives, with prints across the decades. One reference of each print ever made in a vast loft, with very high ceilings. Original prints in every color combo ever created were on the exact fabric from when it was first designed. There were many designers prints there from the 40’s through today, but the Pucci prints stood out the most. So recognizable at the first instant.
Pucci fall 2014 was wrapped in some of those elements. With a strong homage to prints, Peter Dundas seems to have the magic touch to keep the image of the brand one that will carry forward into future decades while feeling a sense of remembrance for the past. I want to see his concept boards, those must be beautiful!
The silhouettes that hit the runway worked together perfectly. You might remember how much I loved last fall’s Pucci collection that I had a chance to photograph. The Pucci fall 2014 collection carried forward the mini skirt lengths that felt like something a modern day Twiggy would have love to wear.
I just want to live in this dress for a little while, everything about it is so lovely. I think I would wear this to the Opera in Paris.
The gowns were all beautiful, beaded, long and felt so easy to wear like this look on Joan Smalls. I mean, they have pockets? How great is that to be dressed for evening but have pockets!
I would wear this sweater walking around the West Village when it’s cold outside. It feel’s cozy and Nordic, and perfect for all that snow!
Did you guys see the velvet suits? The drape of the fabrics, the depth of color. Or the black head to toe suit look? 60’s rock meets equestrian, those boots! I want to wear that look to a gallery opening.
