I must confess, I am a failure at the maxi dress. Every time I acquire anything of full length it hangs in my wardrobe for six months, unworn, before eventually being brought out and hacked up above the knee – or given away, or sold. The maxi dress is, quite simply, not for everyone. But despite all that I can never cease to admire Pucci‘s long flowing pieces.
Rich colours and details like fringing and fur added to the exotic feel of the collection. Some dresses looked more like ethnic silk scarves simply wrapped around the body into minidresses. At other times Pucci’s woman was a Spanish bullfigther – in black lace, embroidery, high-waisted pants and cropped jackets.
