Emilio Pucci Fall Winter 2014
Touched by the nomadic tribes of central Asia, and cut with the cool of 70s rock, the Pucci pre fall collection is a pulsing odyssey wrapped in new flavors.
Freshly charged, the primitive, hand-craft element of the mountains is kicked into high gear with the energy of active sport.
Young, fresh and frenetic, traditional Pucci patterns are refracted with intricate tapestry and watery Ikat motifs. Quilting and ornate embroidery techniques bring a rich, 3-D component to surfaces, creating multiple layers of pattern on velvet, metallic jaquards or double faced wools. Printed borders and trims are both Folkloric and Pucci-esque in spirit.
The ethnic vibe is washed over with an urban mood. Sporty separates, like sweatshirts and knit sweaters are covered in studs, beading and thread embroideries, while leather shorts, and cropped legging pants, are easily mixed and matched. The key jacket is boxy and tailored to the hip. Sexy belted tunics, elongated shirt-dresses, kaftans, and ponchos, are glamorized with thigh-high lace up boots.
Outerwear is key. Janis Joplin coats in leopard spotted rabbit are trimmed in fox. Parkas are fur lined, the 4 pocket slim ski jackets are in bright double faced wool, mink intarsia jackets replicate Ikat patterns. Unruly curled lambswool in sugary pastels is the new alternative to fur.
Punched with pink, raspberry, red, purple and Prussian blue, the collection scintillates with gold for evening. Gold mirror sequins shimmer on a tuxedo suit, or full length shirt dress. Fil-coupe gowns with quilted bodices are overprinted with a metallic tapestry and embroidered with ribbon applique. Seemingly sweet, deep slits reveal a flash of skin, divulging the naughtier side of the Pucci girl.
