Boho scuba gear for the jet set at Emilio Pucci
September 28, 2009 | 12:00 pm
This collection was less tricky than Gucci's with a minimum of surface embellishment, save for a sprinkling of sequins here and there, and some Boho fringe. Dundas struck a balance between sporty separates (great tulip-shape pants with gold snaps up the sides), sexy evening wear and covetable Boho accessories.
Where last season he practically ignored the house's signature prints, this season he reinterpreted them in a modern way, blowing them up in size, in some cases infusing them with metallic color, and splashing them on floaty racerback gowns, swimwear and scuba-inspired cropped jackets with peekaboo cutouts.
It all made for a fast-paced, high-impact show that should put Pucci on the path to becoming a new-old "it" brand.
