Emilio Pucci

Sunday, 31 July 2011

WE heard before the show that Peter Dundas had promised to calm down his Puccigirl this season – which didn’t sound right. We also heard that Kylie Minogue was coming over to see it – and it turned out the latter rumour was true and the first one didn’t have a modicum of truth.
Super-cool supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen opened the show in a waft of blue printed chiffon with thigh-high, lace-up sexy boots. She returned later in glittering black lace that showed off her pierced nipple to perfection – this wasn’t calm by any means.
“It was very rock ‘n’ roll, especially with Kylie sitting in the front row in her barely there gold dress,” said Alexandra Shulman. “Peter does what he does really well. It’s the same riff but he has taken it to a slightly different place this time – it’s hard to think of Pucci as anything other than for rich, beautiful Ibizan hippies. That’s really what it is.”
He used a beautiful spectrum of blues to recall – a rare moment of recollection for Dundas, in fact – prints from the Pucci of old, but they were trussed up with fringed leather jackets and ruffled fronted blouses that were cut low at the front with lacing across the chest in a half-hearted attempt to cover up.
The Wild West references added a frivolity to the serious poser that the Pucci girl can become – with fringed suede chaps and leather waistcoats a good contrast to incredibly sexy cream crochet dresses and second-skin printed dresses that, with a body like that, you can’t help but pose in.
Swimwear was minimal – really teeny tiny – laced and knotted to show off as much flesh as possible, while white python skin coats which featured knotting and whip-stitching alluded to that trend, and billowing gowns with finely pleated chiffon referred to another.
But trends aren’t on the Pucci girl’s mind – hers will be a wardrobe full of body-skimming backless dresses next summer, only her latest acquisitions will be appliquéd with mirrors and ribbons in a – slightly - more bohemian taken on her high voltage life.
“A casual and carefree summer is what Pucci girls enjoy,” Dundas told us. So why give them anything else
