Oh how I love Peter Dundas who’s Emilio Pucci Spring Summer 2015 collection was the perfect picture 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. Including Naomi Campbell who looked sensational on the catwalk.
So where did this come from?
According to Pucci “1970s 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 intricate bead work embroideries on mini or maxi dresses. The Lance spearhead print, fresh from the Pucci archives, is newly coloured and engineered in jersey, gauze or cotton voiles”.
Easy, sporty pieces for warm summer days and hot nights mix with the precision of sharp 1970s tailoring. Lean jackets and skinny flared trousers come in a sturdy linen silk canvas with double stitching. Washed cotton silk voile peasant blouses, and hippy dresses contrast with clean late 60s sportswear. Cheerful mango, peach, pomme verte and poppy red casually mingle with sober military army green, and cognac tan. We just wanna get back to disco with this collection.
Suede shoes and boots come with Perspex heels, while gladiator sandals are adorned with maxi mirror studs. Slouchy shoulder bags in fringed suede, serpent and crocodile finish off the look in a casually luxurious way.
Oh yeah, we like. Check out all the exits below!
