Runway Review: Emilio Pucci Spring 2014

After the more-than-minimal Jil Sander show, the time came for something completely opposite - the maximalism of Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci. Since he took the helm of this famed Italian fashion house, he produced great collections season after season and according to the one I saw last night - he's showing no signs of stopping.

Sexy being in his M.O., the first look (worn by Joan Smalls) came as no surprise - high voltage tapestry print skirt and a leather version of a rock T-shirt. Hot music festival somewhere in the Mediterranean?

The 80s rock'n'roll vibe of the collection increased with each new exit - wildly colored harem pants (it is Pucci, after all), inevitable crop tops and gigantic buckled belts proved to be garments of fashion champions.

I also detected quite a lot of street influences which was a great change of pace considering last season (sexy collegiate girls). Mesh, jersey-like tops, sporty short-shorts (in visually screeching silver) and even freakin' raincoats. What was great about them was that I could imagine girls and women alike clamoring to get their hands on them.

One of the main characteristics of this show was that it's perfect (and I do mean perfect) for the young starlets of Hollywood. Exhibit A. A dress consisting of a tiny bodice and a beautfully draped silk skirt in a vivid color. Exhibit B. A fabulous sequined mini in rainbow shades. Exhibit C. A black column gown with silver, couture-like sleeves is made for the Golden Globes or even the Emmys tongiht.

Peter Dundas is kind of known for his rock'n'roll, party boy lifestyle and it apparently serves him, and the house of Pucci, extremely well.
