Emilio Pucci’s own ties with America – his love for sportswear and a groundbreaking lingerie deal dating back to the Fifties – inspire a glitzy detour across ideas of femininity. The jet set aura and the sporty spirit are mixed and glamorously mingled. The silhouette is shapely and curvaceous or elongated and dynamic, with voluminous duvets, roomy melton duffels and luxuriously utilitarian double-face coats offering function and protection. Marylin Monroe’s archetypal charm: nipped waists, big skirts reminiscent of hand painted Pucci classics or languid slips and intarsia camisoles. Cropped knits tops further highlight the womanly shapes. Quilting is a cozy mountain touch that runs up to the toque hats, gaining a sophisticated air.
