Designing for one of the venerable fashion houses is no easy task – the new designer has to keep the house’s aesthetic and trademarks in mind while still creating something new and modern. Pucci, with all the wild prints and colors, is especially difficult to translate, but Matthew Williamson did an admirable job this season.
Emilio Pucci’s heyday was the sixties and seventies, and this collection was a return to the house’s classic silhouettes – minidresses, colorful tights, chubby furs, and even a few caftans. The color palette matched – mustard yellow, orange, pink, purple, and various tones of brown were the main colors on the runway (this is Pucci, after all, every shade in the rainbow is represented somewhere). The hair was sleek and center-parted, and the makeup was kept very natural, with the exception of warm, peachy eye shadow.
Be warned, however, Pucci is not for the shy. These are statement clothes in every sense of the word.
