Emilio Pucci

New York: For Pre-Fall, Emilio Pucci’s Peter Dundas took his print-clad free spirit in a Town and Country direction. Dundas described his designs as “more grown-up bohemian than usual; it’s WASP-y bohemian.” For the last three years the designer has made a name for himself with his leg-baring looks, but this time he took a more tailored approach. With seventies silhouettes and keen tailoring, the collection embodied two key Pre-Fall trends. The presentation was heavy on smart ensembles like a tweed three-piece suit worn with a tie-dyed scarf that showed an update on the iconic Pucci swirls. A pavé sequin orange turtleneck with a peephole back was paired with violet wide-leg trousers for an easy yet lavish disco-inspired counterpoint, and a slim below-the-knee dress in a blue-based paisley looked particularly fresh – all evidence that Dundas knows how to dress a grown-up Bohemian.
