Peter Dundas’ first season at the venerable Emilio Pucci brought much of his experience at Cavalli, Lacroix and Ungaro to the runway, combining an instinct for glitz with the prints Pucci is known for. Trendy scuba references, practically de rigueur for spring, appeared via mini dresses in underwater hues, as well as marine-inspired prints and sequined patterns. Ample inspiration for abbreviated cuts and body-con silhouettes will be found at Pucci, but Dundas’ Bohemian touches were more interesting, expressed through fringe embellishment on jackets and bags and bright loosely cut trousers. These pieces established a wearable middle ground between the sexy, club-ready looks and the prim schoolgirl ensembles so visible on runways this season.
