Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2013 Collection
For Spring/Summer 2013
, Emilio Pucci
Creative Director Peter Dundas
presented a collection filled with glamor and quiet sensuality. According to the press notes this season the Pucci girl is strong, serene and elegant inside and out. His theme was the opulence of Indochina.
The collection featured a variety of slim dresses, kimono wrapped jackets, jumpsuits and airy tops and bottoms. For spring, there was no sign of the signature Pucci kaleidoscopic print that we have come to know and love. This time around Dundas filtered his vision and concentrated on fabrics, movement and silhouettes. Transparency and texture was intricately woven throughout each piece sent down the runway and helped to define the exotic summer inspired collection remarkably well.
Sheer tunics, silk crepe dresses, chiffon trousers and organza tops created an interesting veiling effect while ethnic inspired white embroidery added lovely depth and dimension to each garment. The array of provocative numbers including a black sheer frock worn by Constance Jablonski
worked to keep the audience's eyes transfixed to the catwalk from start to finish. However it was a red halter dress worn by Joan Smalls
which stole the show.
Although there was no shortage of skin baring pieces, Dundas ingeniously used layering, sport influences and master cutting to appease the more demure clientele. Breezy pastels and see through numbers started the show off with a bang. However it was the pops of vivid color, expert tailoring and sleek silhouettes showcased during the latter part of the presentation that worked to solidify the relevance of the modern Pucci brand in today's fashion arena.
