It takes enough drama and extravagance served in extra-large doses to get one to really long after some quiet exquisiteness, the kind that’s deeply anchored in a sense of reality. Steering away from all the exaggeration, Peter Dundas envisioned a clean, sexy and tough collection for Emilio Pucci, referencing muses like Angie Bowie, Anita Pallenberg and Britt Ekland. The fall / winter 2013 line up celebrating the Pucci girl turned rock goddess felt like an uplifting experience, built upon a unifying bridge successfully connecting the past with the present.
The ultra short silhouettes, Pucci’s swirling rococco signature prints, the thigh-high suede boots and the most cozy-looking fur coats and capes, all topped by the sleek bangs the models rocked on the runway helped shape the fresh take on the archetypal rocker chick image this season. Bold but restrained, seeking color and glamour, the sequined lace dresses, fringed mini-dresses and metallic bead-encrusted tops felt minimal, but daring nonetheless. Women will fully embrace the ’70 s attitude come fall, all while happy to reveal their strengths.
