ASIAN PERSUASION
Milan: Peter Dundas is yet another Milan designer who made references to Asia this week. Mandarin collars, frog closures, and embroidered dragons borrowed from traditional Chinese dress, while kimonos were a nod to Japan. The first passage of looks was an ethereal, all-white bunch showcasing tonal embroidery. Color and print did not appear until look 14 and continued sparingly after. Dundas, instead, focused on other embellishments, including the elaborate embroidery, quilting, and beading. For a house built on its kaleidoscopic prints, that was a statement. Though the prints were somewhat neglected, Dundas still captured the seductive Pucci spirit with figure-hugging dresses, glitzy metallic details, and plenty of skin. –Joanna Manganaro
